Great ending for the first season.

One thing I didn't realize until it was over was the significance of the title sequence for the show. Previously I'd only noticed that the intro music seemed inconsistent, and varied from episode to episode. But in the end [spoiler]we get to hear all that music assembled and played as the funeral march for Maarva. That makes me think that the show's title "Andor" doesn't necessarily refer to Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), but rather refers to his mother Maarva Carassi Andor (played by Fiona Shaw) whose posthumous speech becomes the actual spark for the Rebellion. Or perhaps the title refers to their family name which becomes associated with the fight against the Empire, much like the Skywalkers.[/spoiler]

So Tony Gilroy has spoken about Season 2, which has just now started filming, and is scheduled for release in 2024.

Season 2 will consist of 12 episodes and will cover the 3-year time period leading up to the events of the Rogue One movie.

It will be split into a sequence of 4 story arcs consisting of 3 episodes each. The story arcs will each span across relatively short time frames, with time skips in between the successive arcs.

One slight change I would've made, is where [spoiler]the imperial officer puts his coat over B2MO sloppily -- I'd have instead had his coat fully covering and blocking Maarva's hologram projection, upon which B2MO immediately responds by moving/rolling, so that the coat immediately falls off, allowing Maarva's final words of "fight them!" to be properly heard by all. That would have been B2MO's own R2-like "brave plucky droid" moment and final homage to his "mom". He could've even used his little electric cattleprod thing that he used to stop the dogs from treating him like a fire hydrant in the first episode.[/spoiler]

Andor Death Star Post Credits Scene [4K HDR] - Star Wars: Andor



Quote
Nov 24, 2022
The final Andor Death Star Post Credits Scene, as seen in Episode 12 finale "Rix Road".

12 episodes from season 1, recut into 2 Extended 4 Hour Film Cuts for the entire season. After many requests, I have decided to proceed with this project. The edits won't be particularly elaborate, but based on the story structure of the season, 2 continuous seamless cuts with Episodes 1-6, and 7-12 respectively should tell this tale rather nicely.

See YouTube comments for link to these cuts. (P.S. Mecha Salesman has all relevant Star Wars content re-done into 4K HDR and 1080P SDR, x265 compression, with color and brightness correction).

Rogue One was a good movie, and its spinoff series Andor has been superb. But Andor isn't going to go beyond Season 2, since we know *SPOILER* he dies.

But Rogue One was premised on the excellent novel Catalyst by James Luceno. What if....

What if the enthusiastic embrace of Andor by delighted hardcore fans gives Disney motivation to then do a big-budget series on Catalyst directly?

Talking about its running length Andor was to my understanding meant to original run for five seasons but somewhere along the development curve got reduced to two seasons.

Catalyst was written with reference to the shooting script for Rogue One starting in 2015, you sort of imply that Rogue One was based on Catalyst but it was the other way around.  https://www.starwars.com/news/crafting-catalyst-james-luceno-discusses-his-rogue-one-prequel-novel-interview

Alright, thanks for the correction - but it would still be great to see the Catalyst storyline turned into an actual series, with big-budget production values.

As good as that would be, Star Wars doesn't like adapting books/comics/etc that are already canon. It would just get messy.

I hope they apply the quality of Andor to a story not attached to the current saga. Star Wars needs a clean slate of consistent quality, and starting a new era of stories in the Old Republic for example would free it from fans' over-opinionated baggage.

Not quite the entire truth as TCW S7 retconned part of the Ashoka novel with the Mandalore Siege arc. And I think that the recently released mini-series Tales Of the Jedi retconned it even more. So, they have already infringed on a previously written and released book. And it was/is cannon under the new Disney Star Wars brand.

To clarify, the mess would likely come out of a need to pay the authors royalties. Its one thing to take characters and pluck concepts. A wholesale story adaptation would be different.

Hell, they tried not paying authors for releasing their own books. Disney has licensed printing and sales of Alan Dean Foster's original Star Wars novelization and he wasn't seeing any of the residuals from that.
