Star Wars: Andor: New Leaked Set Photos Reveal Familiar Looking Imperial Uniforms

    The Star Wars: Andor spin-off series for Disney Plus is currently filming in London, and for the past few weeks, there have been lots of leaked pictures from the set. While most of them showcased the massive sets built for the show. In this case, we have new photos primed to initiate conversations and speculation. For the first time, we are seeing people dressed up in the same Imperial uniform as Orson Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.



    The photos come courtesy of Twitter user @Davidintheforc1:

    Mendelsohn has never been announced as a part of the Andor cast, but it is easy to imagine a story that would involve him, considering the show will be more of a close-up of the Rebellion rather than a character-centric show. At the same time, let's not get too excited, because we should remember the Rebellion learned about the existence of the Death Star during the events of Rogue One, and since Krennic is the Director of the Imperial Military Department of Advanced Weapons Research, it seems unlikely that he'd be an antagonist of the show. We should also keep in mind that Krennic has not been the only Imperial affiliate to wear the white uniform of the ISB - back in 1977, Admiral Yularen already delighted us with it. And it didn't stop with him, as more Imperial officers in the background wore them on several occasions during the original trilogy.



    The white uniforms the people in the background are wearing are the ones used by the Imperial Security Bureau, which the Department of Advanced Weapons Research belonged to, the Empire's intelligence agency, which was in charge of matters of internal security and loyalty to the Empire. Having the Empire's CIA part of the show that is supposed to be a spy-thriller makes total sense though.

    To know exactly what is going on, we will have to wait until 2022 (a specific date is yet to be announced), when Star Wars: Andor premieres on Disney Plus. The show will have Diego Luna back as his character from Rogue One. Tony Gilroy, who did significant rewrites for Rogue One, is back as the series showrunner and writer.

    Oh wow, if Krennic is in the show I am going to be hyped. He was my favorite part about Rogue One, actor wise.

    As it kind of says in the OP, I think it's a leap of logic to think Krennic is going to be in it just because there are some dudes wearing the same white suits.

    Just as there's no reason for Enfys Nest to be in a hypothetical sequel to Solo, there's no real reason for Krennic to be in this. His role is specifically interwoven with the development of the Death Star, and there's no indication in Rogue One that he had ever met Cassian before.

    I don’t think those suits have anything to do with Krennic but I do hope he is in it

    Yeah these are probably just the director/officer suits of the empire. I love krennic and hope he is in this as well.

    I think we know they don't. The white suits predate Rogue One - we see officers in ANH wearing them, and Admiral Thrawn wears something similar, so there's no reason to associate the uniform with Krennic (other than the 'he wears one too' connection!).

    I'm not sure there has ever been any canonical explanation of what they signify. Not that I want or need one. Personally I prefer to leave things less defined, and it would be a strange bit of exposition to include I think. But if there isn't one already, then I guess it's still open for it mean whatever they want it to mean!

    Aren't the white uniforms associated with the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB)?

    I don't know. Are they? Sounds legit

    I originally intended to pose it as question (i.e. "Is there a canonical explanation?") because I honestly don't know, but then went with not explicitly asking because I'm fine with not knowing! But I'm happy to take your word for it!

    Although I might ask where in canon we learn this?

    Canon for me though is the films, and I reserve the right to pick and choose anything else as I see fit :p

    Of course there is no real reason for Krennic to be in the show, but I sure would love it if he were!

    Krennic being in this would be great but it's cool even if it's just the uniforms as those are awesome too!
