In 2018 it was revealed that Diego Luna would reprise the role of Cassian Andor for a new prequel series from Disney +. To the microphones of Entertainment Weekly, the actor discussed the prospect of appearing in multiple projects related to the world of Star Wars. However, the actor immediately rejected the idea of returning to the role of the rebel Cassian, adding that 24 episodes were enough for him to explore his origins. “For me, that’s it. It’s been a beautiful journey now that I’ve shot 24 episodes, 24 shorter films, to tell the story of where Cassian comes from and how he became the man we met in Rogue One. “.
Andor will arrive on Disney Plus on September 21, 2022, with three episodes. Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly also star. Tony Gilroy, Dan Gilroy, Stephen Schiff and Beau Willimon are the screenwriters of the series, while Toby Haynes, Susanna White and Benjamin Caron directed the episodes.
