With the Disney+ series Andor close to wrapping up its first season, series creator Tony Gilroy spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of revealing deleted scenes, as well as some hidden Easter eggs in the series.
On the topic of deleted scenes, Gilroy said that while there are one or two sequences that didn’t make the cut of the series, for the most part, Andor used everything they filmed.
“There’s one or two small sequences that we shot but didn’t use,” said Gilroy. “Other than that, we ate the entire cow. The hooves, the horns … We don’t have any waste. We’re well funded, but we’re not overfunded. We’re not one of these shows with an unlimited budget. There are some shows out there that have unlimited budgets. They don’t care. But we’re not on that. We have a very, very tight hold on what we do, so we don’t have anything that we didn’t use. There’s a couple things we retasked and moved around, and there’s one or two things that we reshot along the way because we had a chance to do them better. But no, it’s not that kind of show. We can’t afford it.”
When it comes to Easter eggs, Gilroy has been adamant since the beginning of Andor‘s production that the show would not dive too far into Star Wars fan service, and would instead be more self-contained and focus on its own world. However, that didn’t stop other people from dropping various Easter eggs into the series, which did surprise Gilroy.
“Every now and then, they sneak s— in there that even I didn’t know,” Gilroy said. “I was reading online about the antiquities in Luthen’s gallery, and the provenance of some of those antiquities was news to me. So it was fantastic that the art department snuck those things in there.
