Andor's Season Finale Has A Fun Easter Egg For Those Fluent In Aurebesh


Warning: Spoilers for the “Andor” season finale

The blink-and-you-miss-it Easter egg comes right before the midway mark of the season finale. As the citizens of Ferrix prepare for Maarva’s (Fiona Shaw) funeral, fans get a glimpse of some people dressing in ceremonial attire and warming up their instruments. Then, we see a group of individuals wearing red and standing in front of a brick wall. On the wall, written in the traditional “Star Wars” system Aurebesh, is the word “Andor.” It’s a fun little Easter egg for fans familiar with the symbolistic writing, one that the show doesn’t include very often throughout its first season.

Aurebesh is the common writing system used throughout the “Star Wars” universe to visualize Galactic Basic Standard, the most frequently-used language. General audiences have seen it throughout every “Star Wars” project, usually showing up on digital screens and clone armor throughout “The Clone Wars.”

The fun Easter egg is a nice change of pace for “Andor,” which has primarily refrained from including light-hearted elements that could take away from the show’s gritty nature. Another standout reference featured in “Andor” was the inclusion of Starkiller’s armor in Episode 4. Show creator Tony Gilroy gave credit where credit is due in a recent interview with Variety, revealing that the art department is to thank for the show’s background Easter eggs. While he knows the ins and outs of his characters, there’s too much “Star Wars” lore to know everything. He leaves everything else in the hands of the art department to go crazy. “The art department will sneak in all that crap into Luthen’s gallery,” Gilroy said. “So many cool people work on the show. There’s a deep geekdom in Pinewood, believe me.”
