Diego Luna’s Andor series is reportedly filming its second season later this year at Elstree Studios in the United Kingdom.
Much of the focus at the moment is on Obi-Wan Kenobi, but Lucasfilm is also rumored to release Andor this summer as well. More details surrounding the series led by Diego Luna will surely come at Star Wars Celebration next month, but a new report suggests when filming on Andor season two will start.
Andor star Stellan Skarsgard let it slip back in February that a season two was already in the works. Making Star Wars has now reported that Andor season two principal photography will kick at Elstree Studios in November and might run for 18 months, but that could also include another Lucasfilm production. The United Kingdom’s Elstree Studios is no stranger to Star Wars projects since The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi were filmed there years ago.
Diego Luna first appeared as Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Here is the synopsis for the film:
Former scientist Galen Erso lives on a farm with his wife and young daughter, Jyn. His peaceful existence comes crashing down when the evil Orson Krennic takes him away from his beloved family. Many years later, Galen becomes the Empire’s lead engineer for the most powerful weapon in the galaxy, the Death Star. Knowing that her father holds the key to its destruction, Jyn joins forces with a spy and other resistance fighters to steal the space station’s plans for the Rebel Alliance.
Directed by Gareth Edwards from a screenplay co-written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD, while Andor will hit Disney Plus in 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Diego Luna’s Andor, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more great video content!
