For most of it’s run, The Mandalorian avoided dabbling in lightsabers and Jedi, even with the revelation that Grogu was a Force user that survived Order 66. But Season 2 changed everything when it brought Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) into the plot, which even changed the trajectory of The Book of Boba Fett. There was also no way to avoid the obvious in Obi-Wan Kenobi, which the titular character is one of the franchise’s most famous Jedi Masters and his friend-turned-adversary is Darth Vader.
One series, which has been completely disconnected from the Skywalker family drama, and the lightsabers and Jedi connected to them, has been Tony Gilroy’s game changer Andor. While characters like Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) and Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) have worked alongside (and against) the Jedi during the Clone Wars, and Emperor Palpatine is an oft-spoken of presence in the senate, there are no glowing swords or space monks anywhere to be found, and Gilroy doesn’t think Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) or his friends on Ferrix even know about them.
