It’s been over 2 years since Bob Iger announced they would be launching Disney+ and that one of the shows would be a “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” prequel series starring Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor.
This past week, Diego Luna appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and gave an update on the Disney+ series. He is currently in London, England and revealed filming has now begun on the “spy thriller” show. He said:
“It’s basically everything you have to know to understand Rogue One. The story of the character before. I can spoil the ending I guess! It’s nice to go into a story you already know the ending. Now you can take the nuances and the layers. I think it’s fun to do something that isn’t just about getting to the end. It’s about delaying that.”
Check out the full interview below:
Very little is known about the upcoming Rogue One prequel series, though we know it follows the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor, which he originated in the 2016 film. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.
No Disney+ release date or official name has yet been announced, but hopefully we will find out more on the show soon.
