Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was Disney’s first feature to expand the Star Wars universe. With the current Trilogy now ended, Rogue One is finally looking an underrated gem. The future of Star Wars especially in the ‘live action’ arena is up in the air. The Mandalorian, is given us hope there is a future, will Rogue One Spin-Off follow suit?
Disney will be hoping it will and Variety have revealed it has two new cast members. They are reporting Stellan Skarsgård and Kyle Soller are joining the TV prequel. They will be joining Diego Luna who played Cassian Andor in the film which the series will be based around.
The untitled Disney+ bound series is set set around the Rebel agent Andor. Taking place prior to the events of Rogue One in the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire. The details on the show are scarce but we’ve learned it will be ‘spy thriller’.
Tony Gilroy who was the ‘fixer’ on Rogue One‘s re-shoots seems set to direct the pilot episode. The report also says he will also direct multiple episodes with Stephen Schiff as showrunner.
The report also mentions the actors are still in final negotiations. Disney haven’t confirmed or denied they are in talks with both actors.
Alan Tudyk is also set to reprise his role as K-2SO, Andor’s droid sidekick.
With the industry in complete lockdown, Disney’s plans to release this series in 2021 will probably change.
