Diego Luna teased the upcoming Cassian Andor Star Wars series and revealed filming will begin this year.
After the success of The Mandalorian and the end of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars is making a transition to the small screen on Disney Plus. So far, we have The Mandalorian season two, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series, and a Rogue One prequel centering on Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor. Filming for The Mandalorian season two is already underway and will be out in October. Meanwhile, The Obi-Wan Kenobi series has recently faced a production delay to improve the scripts and will film early next year.
Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor series is expected to arrive on Disney Plus sometime next year with Rogue One writer Tony Gilroy set to direct the pilot and a few episodes. The American‘s Stephen Schiff is showrunning the Cassian Andor series. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Diego Luna provided an update on the upcoming Cassian Andor series:
“Yes, we are doing it. We are doing it this year. It’s happening, and I’m getting ready for it. I can’t wait. It is really cool to tell a story where you already know the ending. It is a different approach because of the beauty and it’s how things happen. It’s not just what happens. It’s not the typical way of approaching a story. It’s about how things happen, which in fact, is the same that happened in Rogue One. You know the ending, but you don’t know how it happened, and we have that challenge in front of us again, which is exciting.”
