Andor is not a war of stars Series full of fanservice, but there are small details for fans to keep their eyes peeled for. The first three episodes have several Easter eggs that both casual and hardcore fans will appreciate. Episode 2 of Andor had plenty of Easter eggs that even the most attentive viewer might have missed.
Here are 5 Easter Eggs in Andor Episode 2 that you may have missed
In episode 2 of Andor, Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) adoptive mother, Maarva (Fiona Shaw), visits Cassian’s room and finds a bantha doll. Many war of stars Fans will instantly recognize this doll as Bantha creatures have been seen many times war of stars. Banthas are large creatures used for transport and food by the Tusken Raiders on Tatooine.
Clone Wars ships
When the Pre-Mor company agents come to Ferrix in Episode 2 to search for Cassian, they fly in ships that look strikingly similar to the Republic gunships deployed by the Galactic Republic Episode II – Attack of the Clones. There are a few visual differences between these ships, but the similarities in the models are striking.
Andor takes place afterwards Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and in those first three episodes there are several references to the clone wars. Episode 1 included an overhead shot of a Y-wing bomber and other warships at a shipyard. While the Empire is attempting to remove much of the equipment used by the clone army, it would make sense for a private military company to purchase some of the surplus weapons and ships.
In episode 2, Bix (Adria Ajorna) wakes up at Timm’s (James McArdle) house and asks for a “cafe”. Fans can pick up that’s the case war of stars world version of coffee, but this is the first time it has ever been mentioned in a TV show or film. According to Fansideed, the word “cafe” was first used in “Peter M. Schweighofer’s short story ‘Hasty Exit'” in 1996, and the first canon use of the term was in John Jackson Miller’s 2014 novel A new dawn.”
Rebel Alliance symbol?
This is rather questionable as it could just be a coincidence, but it’s worth noting. When Timm is spying on Andor at a broadcast station, the marquee above the station will have a red icon similar to that of the Rebel Alliance. While it wouldn’t make any sense for the icon to appear just yet because the Rebel Alliance hasn’t fully formed, it could be a harbinger of Andor eventually joining the Rebellion.
In episode 2 of Andor, the viewers are introduced to Luthen (Stellan Skarsgard). Luthen is Bix’s contact who she kept telling Cassian to meet. When Luthen arrives, he is flying on a ship called the Fonder. While a fonder was not seen war of stars earlier, fans can recognize it from Star Wars Battlefront 2. This is his first appearance outside of a video game.
The first three episodes of Andor stream on Disney+.
