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 Star Wars fans will immediately recognize this doll as Bantha creatures have been seen many times in Star Wars. Bantha’s are large creatures used by the Tusken Raiders on Tatooine for transportation and food.

When the Pre-Mor corporate agents come to Ferrix to search for Cassian in episode 2, they are flying in ships that look strikingly similar to the Republic gunships used by the Galactic Republic in Episode II — Attack of the Clones. There are a few visual differences between these ships, but the similarities in the models are noticeable.
Andor takes place after Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, and there are several nods to the Clone Wars in these first three episodes.

Rebel Alliance symbol?
This one is more questionable since it could just be a coincidence, but it is worth mentioning. When Timm goes to snitch on Andor at a transmission station, the marquee over the station has a red symbol that looks similar to the Rebel Alliance. While it wouldn’t make sense for the symbol to appear yet because the Rebel Alliance hasn’t been fully formed yet, it could be a foreshadowing of Andor eventually joining the rebellion.
In episode 2 of Andor, 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 a Fonder. While a Fonder has not …read more
