Warning: The following interview has spoilers of Andor’s season one finale “Rix Road” on Disney+
Star Wars creator George Lucas once wrote about “the taxation of trade routes” in the opening prologue of Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menance, and if Disney+’s Star Wars series has given die-hard fans anything, it’s the binary, granular look at how such universe politics come to be. While The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Book of Boba Fett has been intoxicated by callbacks to legacy characters and all-things atmospheric from Lucas and even Star Wars animation architect Dave Filoni’s imaginings, Gilroy has focused on the smaller conversations, the clerical details if you will, of how a bureaucratic Imperial force rises and how a rebellion among disparate factions comes together (Hint, it helps to have a rich person in your corner who is attempting to move money around and fund the opposition, read Genevieve O’Reilly’s rebel co-founder-to be Mon Mothma). One such jaw dropping detail revealed in the epilogue: Those big steel wheels that Cassian and the Narkina 5 prisoners were assembling a few episodes ago were parts for the Death Star’s firing cannon. Duh. It’s those type of Easter eggs that Andor has thrived on versus say deep universe cameos from the Filoni animation shows.
