‘Andor’ is a prequel?

Cassian Andor was first introduced in ‘Rogue One’ (2016) as a rebel captain and intelligence officer. He is instrumental in ensuring that the Rebellion acquired the Death Star plans in ‘A New Hope’. Luna’s character served as one of the core members working alongside Jyn (Felicity Jones) to steal the plans for the Empire’s ultimate weapon. With the series set five years before the events of the film, ‘Andor’ serves as a prequel series. A Vanity Fair report revealed that it is “a series that [will] explore Andor’s backstory, revealing what drew him to the Galactic Rebellion and how he evolved from a selfish nihilist to a selfless martyr.”

With the series already renewed for a second season, the general idea is for it to tie into the movie where he and Jyn sacrifice their lives on the mission. The film on its own was a hit grossing $1 billion worldwide, making it the 20th highest-grossing film of all time and the second highest-grossing film of 2016. There is no doubt that the prequel will fare well. likewise, considering ‘Star Wars’ has a pattern of introducing lesser-known characters and giving them strong arcs.

‘Andor’ premieres September 21, 2022 on Disney+.
