ANDOR Seemingly Just Made STAR WARS: THE FORCE UNLEASHED Canon And Fans Are Freaking Out - SPOILERS

An Easter Egg spotted in the latest episode of Andor has seemingly made Star Wars: The Force Unleashed canon, leading to a whole lot of excitement and a long list of questions. Find more details here...

Andor may be largely standalone in nature, putting Jedi and big-name characters to one side, but it's still an important chapter in the wider Star Wars mythos. After all, we're learning about the formation of the Rebellion that would ultimately topple the evil Empire! Today's episode, however, featured a huge Easter Egg that's got fans everywhere talking. 

In Luthen Rael's den of antiquities on Coruscant, there are a few interesting items on display...and a suit of armour that looks extremely familiar. 

Found around the 29:45 mark in the episode, that seems to be the "Lord Starkiller" helmet from the popular Force Unleashed video games. This iteration of the character Galen Marek killed Darth Vader and went on to take his place. That story obviously isn't canon, and not even the events of the first game are thought to have occurred in the Disney era of Star Wars.

Fans have been hoping that Lucasfilm might find a way to bring Starkiller back, though, even if it means he was no longer Vader's secret apprentice. There are definitely other eras his story could play out in, and this Easter Egg seems to suggest that the character did exist at some point.

If not Starkiller, then someone has donned his armour, and we can't believe this was an accidental nod. Now, it doesn't necessarily mean he is going to show up in the near future, but perhaps Lucasfilm will find a way to make him part of The High Republic era of storytelling. If so, we'd like to think Sam Witwer will be asked to reprise the role. 

Check out the Easter Egg along with some reactions to the big reveal below:
