With several new Star Wars projects currently in development, we now have an update on Disney+’s Cassian Andor series.
It’s been known that the series will see Diego Luna reprise his Rogue One of Andor, and the show will serve as a prequel of sorts to the first Star Wars Story offering. Now, as revealed during the Disney Investor Day 2019 presentation, Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that Alan Tudyk will be returning for the series. In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you’ll remember that genre fave Tudyk provided the voice for K-2SO, and that will again be the case in Cassian Andor.
Elsewhere, StarWars.com has revealed that The Americans’ Stephen Schiff will be serving as showrunner and executive producer on this hotly anticipated now show. Production on Cassian Andor will begin later this year, although the series itself isn’t going to premiere until 2021.
In an official statement, Cassian Andor was described as a “rousing spy thriller [that will] explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”
Cassian Andor will join Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian on Disney+, with Favreau’s Pedro Pascal-headlined series to premiere this November.
