The shooting of “Andor”, the future “Star Wars” series derived from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has ended its shooting. Diego Luna, the main performer of the show, gives some details on the characters who will appear.
Andor : filming is finished
Directed by Stephen Schiff and Tony Gilroy, series Andor does not yet have a release date on Disney +. She is taken by. Diego Luna who therefore resumes the character of Cassian Andor introduced in the excellent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This will tell the adventures of this anti-hero before the events of Gareth Edwards’ film. In addition to Diego Luna, the rest of the cast includes Stellen Skarsgard, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly. Obviously, the shooting of Andor is well and truly finished. Which means that the series should logically not be long in revealing its first images, for a 2022 release on Disney +.
Many returns are to be expected
In a recent interview with Deadline, Diego Luna has confirmed thatAndor would bring back characters well known to spectators:
You will certainly see some familiar faces. I can tell you about this project because it’s hard to spoil the end when we saw Rogue One. No matter what I say, I can’t spoil the ending.
It remains to be seen whether this statement relates to other characters in Rogue One, or protagonists from the universe Star wars more global. We know that Forest Whitaker confirmed for casting from the Serie. Logically, the actor will take over the role of Saw Gerrera, which he already held in Rogue One. He would thus be one of the characters set out by Diego Luna. It also remains to be seen if the protagonist will have already crossed the path of Darth Vader, or if he will still be in full possession of his means as in the animated series. Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels.
Other announced return, that of Ben Mendelsohn, who played Callan Krennic, the main antagonist of Rogue One. Next, Alan Tudyk to double the endearing droid K-2SO again who had made a strong impression in Gareth Edwards’ film. Finally, and this is perhaps the biggest news, a certain Ewan McGregor is also announced in the cast, to resume, of course, the role of the famous Obi-Wan Kenobi, while waiting for the release of his own series!
Diego Luna is in heaven
In any case, Diego Luna did not hide his enthusiasm for the series Andor :
To be honest, it has been such a blessing to do this job and to do it under these circumstances. I have been fortunate enough to work with a team that I could not be more proud of and that I greatly admire. We have finished filming. While I can’t say much, what I can tell you is that the experience was literally a transformation for me. This is something that I really wanted to do. I am more than happy.
