How Much Does Star Wars Andor Cost Per Episode?

The exact budget for each episode of Andor hasn’t been revealed. Estimates from Comicbook and LRM Online put the budget in the $15-25 million range. If these are accurate, then Andor is running on less than half the budget of Rings of Power, which is $60 million per episode according to Amazon. It’s important to mention that Amazon had to pay licensing fees to both Warner Bros. and J.R.R. Tolkien’s estate. Both shows are visually stunning, but Andor arguably spent its money more wisely.

How does Andor Compare to Other Star Wars Shows?

Andor has a similar budget to The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This is surprising because the show feels like a movie, but the Andor crew got creative with their budget. The main difference in how the budget for Andor is spent is the use of beautiful locations around the world to represent various planets; for example, the Scottish Highlands are heavily featured for their rolling hills and lakes. The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi use CGI in a studio for Tatooine landscapes—this gives them a more artificial quality.

That’s all we have for how much is the Andor budget per episode. We’re here to answer your other Andor questions like what kind of droid is B2EMO, what planet Cassian is from, and what is the box in Andor. Check back after the next Andor episode for more guides.
