The first three episodes of the long-awaited Star Wars series Andor are no longer named, as Disney+ has released the titles for all three installments. The three episodes were listed without any spoilers on the streaming service on September 21, but Disney+ had updated Andor's page to include them.
"Kassa," the first episode of the series that serves as a prequel to "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," reintroduces Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) to the audience, showing that he is on the run after accidentally killing a double murder. Other supporting characters are introduced, including Brasso (Joplain Sibtain) and Bix (Adria Arjona), as well as Cassian's trusted droid B2EMO
Cassian's attempts to hide from the authorities are further explored in Episode 2, titled "That Would Be Me." As the episode begins, Cassian realizes that he must now get off Ferrix as he is being hunted by agents of the company that he killed. Cassian tries to devise a strategy by selling a starfighter to Bix's buyer, who appears to be carrying some own secrets. The episode also continues the flashbacks by showing Kassa and his fellow Kenari investigating
The third episode of Andor is titled "Reckoning," which is interestingly the title of an episode of The Mandalorian, although that episode is officially titled "The Reckoning." Cassian is initially confused by Bix, but soon learns that Luthen is the one who takes him down. Both Cassian and Luthen are able to successfully escape the planet, where further adventures await.
The first three episodes of Andor have received critical acclaim similar to Rogue One, which was written by Andor's creator and executive producer Tony Gilroy. Critics have praised the series for demonstrating a different, grittier, Star Wars world, and noted that the story does not contain Jedi, Sith, lightsabers, or any of the other Star Wars tropes.
The first three episodes of Andor are now available on Disney+, and more will be released every Wednesday. Check out Collider's interview with Andor star Diego Luna here:
