BBY 5 Explained: Andor’s Timeline Is More Important Than You Realize

Posted on

Warning: Contains mild SPOILERS for Andor episodes 1 and 2.Andor episode 1 begins by announcing it takes place in the year BBY 5, which is significant both for the show's story and the wider Star Wars galaxy. Andor doesn't stray too far from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's timeline; that movie took place in the year 0 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), since it led directly into the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. Andor, then, winds the clock back just five years, allowing it to build the story of Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) from his fledgling role in the still-forming Rebel Alliance into the character seen in Rogue One.
