The news was confirmed by actor Diego Luna in a recent interview with Deadline. “I had the chance to work with a team that I couldn’t be more proud of and admire more,” Luna said. “It’s a hard-core moment to be out there shooting, and we were really lucky. We’re done with the shooting now and getting it ready for audiences to see it.”
Like many Hollywood productions, the coronavirus impacted production on the Star Wars series. Andor was initially set to kick off filming in 2019, then it was delayed to June 2020, right in the midst of the pandemic. Filming finally kicked off in November 2020 and wrapped in August 2021.
“I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t spoil the ending if you’ve seen Stars Wars: Rogue One already”, he teased. “No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending.”
The 12-episode series, which Luna also executive produced, is expected to hit Disney+ in 2022.
