‘Andor’: Is Luthen Rael a Secret Jedi?
We’ve generally avoided too many Star Wars theories with Andor because it’s just not the kind of show that’s all about hidden connections and wild Easter eggs. But a ScreenCrush YouTube viewer sent us a theory that was so intriguing we had to discuss it.
The theory goes something like this: Luthen Rael, Cassian Andor’s secret benefactor in the Rebel Alliance, is actually a Jedi. And not just any Jedi, but a very specific Jedi: Master Uvell. This character previously appeared in a canonical Star Wars story, and knew an antiques dealer that specialized in Jedi artifacts. Even the names — Luthen Rael, Master Uvell — kind of sound alike.
And those are not the only elements that makes us think this theory has real merit — in our latest Star Wars video, we look at the theory and speculate why Luthen Rael really might be a former Jedi master. You can see all the evidence of Luthen’s double life in our video below:
