Star Wars: Andor talks about the titular Cassian (Diego Luna) and his transformation from petty thief to major Rebel figure. In a new plot, the hero was sentenced to 6 years in prison after being charged with vandalism. He ended up on the moon Narkina 5, where he and other prisoners spend their days building the same pieces of equipment over and over again. After ten episodes, it’s still a mystery what they’re building.
The series’ showrunner Tony Gilroy did not reveal this information in an interview with Collider, but said that Andy Serkiswho plays Kino Loya knows what prisoners build. However, the creator gave a hint of what this project is not, refuting one of the fan theories.
Yes. Well, maybe we’ll just have to wait and see what Andy says. I heard one theory. Someone said: “My daughter sent me something: in the next room they are building something and then they are dismantling it”, which is not true. It’s total nihilism. I replied that we are not so dark.
One of the most popular fan theories about what the prisoners on Narkine 5 are building is about parts for the Death Star. The reason for this is that the prison is very restrictive and probably something is being built for the use of the Empire. In addition, the series is set roughly 5 years before the launch of the Death Star – it is very possible that at this point in the story it is in the final stages of construction. The large number of hands to work on this superweapon, which takes twenty years to build, makes sense given the scale of the project.
