The twelfth and final episode of the first season of Andor gives us the end credits scene for the first time. And it shows a lot more than just the Death Star. After all, we see its components for a reason.
After the credits of the twelfth episode of the first seasonAndorra” we return to the world of “Star Wars” – to the construction site. As the camera pans out, we quickly suspect what most fans of the saga would immediately suspect: the Death Star is being built here.
This moment once again helps to chronologically classify the series and shows the way to the events “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story“. However, the events of this Star Wars movie, which will be covered in the second season of the series, are still about four years away. But we still have to wait a bit for that.
However, the end credits scene reveals another important detail that fans have long speculated about. If you look closely, you will see which is installed on the Death Star. It is the parts that Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Ruescott Melshi (Duncan Pow), Kino Loy (Andy Serkis) and Co were supposed to gather at Narkina 5 prison.
Cassian Andor as the creator of the Death Star
Andor and Melshi thus inadvertently became involved in the construction of the Death Star. This makes the actions of both of you in Rogue One even more so, as they play a crucial role in the destruction. It is then—even if they no longer experience it— something like a personal revenge for martyrdom and all sides of Narkina-5 endured. While they’ll never know they had a hand in the making of the Death Star, it’s kind of satisfying — at least for the fans.
But the scene tells us more, that these are two different readings. She could have told us that during the prison riot, Andor and Melshi first sabotaged the Death Star long before Rogue One. Because the supply of parts from Narkina 5 had to stop at least temporarily. So did they delay the construction of the Death Star enough that the rebellionRebel‘and then to’A new hope“Could you take any action at all?
Another interpretation is much more likely. As construction of the Death Star ramps up, there is no shortage of parts, the scene should show us how many places like Narkina 5 still exist. There are so many of them that the collapse of one prison has no effect on empire building. This reading also fits better with previous Andor series. After all, the Empire had no problem killing an entire floor of workers. It probably would have been better if the Death Star build had stagnated without the Narkina 5 parts.
Andor – That’s how special the Star Wars series can be
The attention to detail and revision of storylines is one of the reasons why Andorra is the best Star Wars series for many fans (including the writer of these lines) – mainly because it often happens in subtle ways. The season finale once again provides plenty of examples of this.
This is where the tunnels on Ferrix mentioned a century ago are relevant again. Or we can Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) to watch her relentlessly kiss her husband Perrin (Alastair Mackenzie) was held as a scapegoat for the missing funds – after all, we know from the previous episode that she has long suspected that her driver is a spy and will eavesdrop on the conversation (which is probably why she deliberately keeps him in the car and not at home).
You can find even more enthusiasm for Andor in the current YouTube video by Sebastian. If you are interested in more of his videos or want to leave a review, we direct you to our YouTube channel.
By the way, the filming of the second season of “Andor” has been going on for a few days now. Monday, 2022 on Nov. 21, the first footage of Season 2 dropped, but we’ll likely have to wait about two years for the broadcast. It should not last until 2024. fall due to the heavy production of Disney+.
When we turn it back on, a lot of time has passed, not only for us, but also for the characters. The series will differ in time, and the second…
