New ‘Andor’ Episode Features ‘Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’ Starkiller Easter Egg

Spoilers ahead!

Star Wars The Force Unleashed Starkiller Andor

The latest episode of Andor contains an awesome Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Easter egg.

So far, Andor hasn’t been like the previous Star Wars shows on Disney Plus for a few reasons. One of the biggest aspects that sets it apart is that the show isn’t full of massive Easter eggs, but that changed with the show’s fourth episode.

In Andor‘s latest episode, viewers return to Coruscant, where we learn Luthen Rael operates as an antique collector. There are a lot of Easter eggs that can be spotted in Luthen’s collection, but perhaps the most exciting one relates to Darth Vader’s secret apprentice Galen Marek, AKA Starkiller, from The Force Unleashed video games.

Fans Spot Lord Starkiller’s Armor

At the 29:45 mark, the Lord Starkiller helmet from an alternate Force Unleashed storyline can be seen in the background. Starkiller isn’t currently canon, but Dave Filoni almost put the character in Star Wars Rebels. You can see a screengrab of the Lord Starkiller armor in the new Andor episode below.

Here is the synopsis for Andor:

“The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.”

Andor stars Diego Luna, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Genevieve O’Reilly. Tony Gilroy, Dan Gilroy, Stephen Schiff, and Beau Willimon served as the writers of the Star Wars series, while Toby Haynes, Susanna White, and Benjamin Caron directed the episodes.
