Andor Episode 9 Slips Into A Princess Leia And A Parallel New Hope


Andor has steadily climbed the popularity charts among Star Wars fans. Although initially dismissed as boring, the show is now loved by fans who wanted a deeper exploration of the Empire. But along with its big themes, Andor brings in plenty of references to characters and scenes we’ve seen before. In the last episode, the show refers to the movie and the character we all love.

Andor refers to a new hope

Star Wars A New Hope

Star Wars A New Hope

Andor turned out to be a Star Wars show like no other we’ve seen so far. It dives deep into the authoritarian and fascist workings of the Empire and showcases the indomitable spirit and intelligence of the rebels.

It’s also a show that knows fans love to see little references to other Star Wars media. And he offered one in the last episode. In episode 9 there is a scene where we see Dr. Gorst start torturing Bix. But we are not shown the torture. Instead, the scene immediately cuts to the huge sliding door closing, and then we see an Imperial walking.

This scene exactly mirrors the one in A New Hope where Leia is mercilessly tortured by Darth Vader. There too, we do not see the torture. Instead, the door slides and we move on to a walking Imperial. It’s also a neat reference to how the torture mechanics haven’t changed, and also how no mercy is shown to the rebels.

Star Wars characters have already been referenced

Plo Koon

Plo Koon

This isn’t Andor’s first reference to the larger Star Wars universe. He recently subtly referenced Ahsoka as well. In the scene where Luthen eavesdrops on Rebel comms, he’s technically listening to Ahsoka, who was operating as Fulcrum during this time.

Along with this, in episode 4 there is also a reference to Plo Moon’s mask. We see him in Luthen’s shop since he has the public disguise of being an antique dealer. Now the mask looks like an antiox mask, but during Clone Wars, Plo Koon was truly the one and only known Kel-Dor Jedi. As such, it makes sense that this is indeed his mask.

What did you think of this A New Hope reference? Have you found any others? Let us know.
