Diego Luna, the actor who played Cassian Andor in “Rogue One,” recently revealed more details about the upcoming “Star Wars” spinoff show “Andor.”
What’s going on?
“Andor” — a “Rogue One” spinoff that will explore Cassian Andor’s life before the events of the prequel film — will likely include Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) and the droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk).
Luna told The Hollywood Reporter the show will be an exciting opportunity since it will tell the story of a character where the ending is already certain.
I think it’s really interesting to tell a story even though we know where it ends. The way you can approach a story like this inevitably takes you into a deeper process of reflection. I tend to use that word a lot. So once you know what Cassian is capable of, then there’s room for so much exploration, and that’s something that excites me a lot as an actor. I think the format of a series is amazing because we have a lot of time to explore all those layers. What happens in ‘Rogue One’ is something we can actually reflect on, and what’s behind something like (sacrificing an informant). I think it’s a very interesting challenge, the one we have in front of us. So I’m really excited to go back to that character because I really enjoyed playing him, and I was really happy with what the film represents. ‘Rogue One’ was a story of regular people. It was regular people doing incredible things, and in a way, it’s a film that reminds us of the power we all have if we have a conviction. So, yeah, I feel blessed to have the chance to revisit this role.
Do we know anything else?
StarWars.com revealed that the show will be “a tense nail-biting spy thriller” that will hit Disney+ in 2022.
