Star Wars has just recently wrapped up work with Obi-Wan Kenobi and has its next entry on the horizon, Andor. The Rogue One prequel will focus on Diego Luna‘s character of Cassian Andor. We’re exploring his time during the rise of the rebellion to take down the Empire, which wouldn’t happen until many years later.
As part of Entertainment Weekly’s Star Wars-focused podcast, Dagobah Dispatch, Luna got a chance to discuss what the future has in store with the Disney+ series. One point he wanted to make the point that this isn’t just about Cassian.
Even though it’s called Andor, it’s about a revolution. It’s an ensemble. It’s about a group of people. It’s about community. You’ll have the chance to meet many characters you don’t know and visit places you don’t know existed in this galaxy.Diego Luna
We’ll definitely explore a lot of the early days of the rebellion, especially with the promise of how future seasons will evolve this story. We’ll see just how the people surrounding Cassian may shape not only him but his worldview as well, which would plant the seeds of what would make him part of Rogue One’s suicide mission.
