Andor is the first Star Wars project to acknowledge sex

A long time ago in a brothel far, far away…

The brand new Disney TV show Andor, which premiered Wednesday, will be the first Star Wars project to acknowledge that sex actually takes place in a galaxy far, far away.

SYFY noted that the historic mention of sex, which occurs in the first 10 minutes of the show, “makes the show an absolute game-changer for the nearly 50-year-old franchise.”

Creator Tony Gilroy told Rolling Stone magazine that the very first scene of the first episode begins with a trip to a brothel, leaving viewers in no doubt as to the tone of the series.

“It sure is a good sign when you turn in that first episode when they’re like, ‘Whoa! OK, that’s how the show is going to be,’” Gilroy said.

“It was a character, but it’s also good for the story. It served a double purpose.”

The series marks a transition for the sexless franchise, which has always aimed for more family-friendly content. But Gilroy wants to change that.

“The war is coming,” declared the 66-year-old director. “The stories and characters are meant to be ground level; Even an opening plot twist, with a character out of romantic jealousy calling the Imperial cops on Andor, is new territory for ‘Star Wars’.”

"Andor" is set nearly five years before the doomed mission to steal the Death Star plans "Villain One" and will tell the story of the rebel spy Cassian Andor.

Andor tells the story of rebel spy Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna) through to the beginning of the doomed mission to secure the Death Star plans that served as the plot of Rogue One.

“It’s the most down-to-earth thing Star Wars is going to get,” said “Andor” star Luna.

“We emphasize that change and revolution happen when ordinary people decide to do something. It’s just normal people trying to survive in this galaxy’s darkest time and finding they can’t take it anymore. It’s about a system that suffocates society.”

Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shaw and Faye Marsay.

New episodes of Andor will premiere every Wednesday on Disney+.
