‘Andor’ Followers Are Giddy for the New ‘Star Wars’ Homosexual Couple

This text accommodates spoilers for Andor episode 5

Star Wars has lengthy had a clumsy relationship with the LGBTQ+ neighborhood. Again within the 2000s it was bluntly acknowledged that homosexual folks “didn’t exist in Star Wars“. Since then we’ve seen awkward child steps like online game The Outdated Republic‘s DLC planet Makeb, the one place within the universe the place gamers have been permitted to pursue same-sex relationships.

Since Disney bought Star Wars issues have improved, although not with out controversy. A much-trumpeted lesbian kiss in The Rise of Skywalker was primarily a background element and was edited out of some worldwide releases. Since then we’ve seen a smattering of LGBTQ+ characters in varied books, comics, and animated exhibits.

However this week’s episode of Andor – ‘The Axe Forgets’ – casually reveals Star Wars‘ latest homosexual couple: Faye Marsay’s Vel and Varada Sethu’s Cinta.

Early within the episode it was commented that the 2 are “already sharing a blanket”, which seems like affirmation to us that they’re collectively. Admittedly this was a fast line and the pair didn’t present any onscreen intimacy, however it’s fairly clear what was being implied.

Followers are over the dual moons about it:

Some demand a smooch earlier than we correctly have a good time:

Andor is aware of the place it stands:

Sure, all of us picked up on that:

Hope it’s a giant blanket as Aldhani appears to be like chilly:

There’s not a lot subtlety right here:

Nonetheless, with subsequent week’s episode set to function an extremely dangerous heist we might not get a lot of an opportunity to see the joyful couple, as we doubt everybody will make it out alive. Luckily, Vel and Cinta aren’t on the group really infiltrating the Imperial base, although we doubt they’ll be stored utterly out of the motion.

Fingers crossed this trace develops into one thing extra within the coming episodes.

Andor releases Wednesdays on Disney Plus.
