Who is Anto Kreegyr, the Separatist Mentioned in Andor Episode 8?
**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**
Andor Episode 8 saw the return of Rogue One Star Wars character Saw Gerrera, played by Forest Whitaker, and we explain who Anto Kreegyr is and why Saw refused to work with him.
Episode 8, titled Narkina 5, primarily followed Cassian as he settled into the titular prison. Elsewhere, Luthen tried to get Saw Gerrera to work with a fellow rebel, but was soon dismissed, and Mon Mothma continued to plot with Tay Kolma.
Created by Tony Gilroy for Disney Plus, Andor is a prequel series to Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, returning Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Set five years before the Jyn Erso-led project, Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw.
Andor Episode 8 Recap
While Cassian was becoming acquainted with his new life on Narkina 5, Luthen was tightening his belt when it comes to the Rebellion and went to visit a comrade.
Luthen met Saw Gerrera at his base to negotiate and discovers he is not on board as a team player, which hurts the organization in the future.
It is then suggested to Saw that he considers working with Anto Kreegyr, which is met negatively by Saw who calls him a Separatist.
Who is Anton Kreegyr?
Anton Kreegyr is an original character created for the Andor series and is known, thanks to Saw Gerrera, as a Separatist.
The Separatist Alliance saw a number of star systems and high-rollers leave the Republic in order to fight for independence against the clone armies and Jedi Knights.
Saw Gerrera has a history of fighting against Separatists from The Clone Wars days, when he lost his sister Steela during the battle – one reason why Saw is opposed to working with Kreegyr.
It is also revealed that Kreegyr has been probing the Imperial power station at Spellhaus and managed to find a weakness in its stronghold.
