STAR WARS: ANDOR Action Figure Reveals An Unexpected New Droid Sidekick For Cassian Andor

A new San Diego Comic-Con exclusive action figure for Disney+'s Andor reveals that the title character will have a very different droid sidekick when we pick up with him five years before Rogue One...

Andor is fast approaching, and we now have a first look at an upcoming Star Wars: The Black Series action figure from Hasbro. 

As you can see below, this San Diego Comic-Con exclusive boasts a very realistic take on Diego Luna's Cassian Andor, though the Rebel hero is joined by a new droid companion. Named B2EMO, this character certainly looks pretty unique, and is likely a sidekick of sorts to Andor throughout this first batch of episodes. 

Those will be set five years prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it's possible this alliance is going to set the stage for Cassian's eventual friendship with Alan Tudyk's straight-talking reprogrammed Imperial droid, K-2SO.

"We don’t have Alan Tudyk," showrunner Tony Gilroy recently confirmed while discussing Andor's first 12 episodes. "Not yet, anyway." Despite that, he suggested this is a plot point we'll see play out when the show returns. "It is a second season, but it’s really, for me, the second half of the novel. This first season is about him becoming a revolutionary, and the second 12 episodes take him into Rogue One."

We're definitely intrigued by where Andor is taking us, particularly with such a unique structure. As for this droid, we hope to have more details to share with you in the coming weeks.

Andor 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.

Diego Luna returns as Cassian Andor and is joined by cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough and Kyle Soller. The show premieres on Disney+ on August 31.
