The Coronavirus has had a massive impact on the upcoming Disney+ productions, including the Rogue One prequel series starring Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor, which was just four weeks into production before it was shutdown.
Recently, Diego Luna spoke with the Guardian about several subjects, including why he isn’t in a rush to return to filming the Rogue One prequel series.
Shooting is starting around the world, so slowly we’re going back, but there’s no rush. To me, what this pandemic brought to my attention is that there [are] priorities. We have to be cautious and we have to be wise on when and how to go back. And the how is the most important, because if we go back to be who we were, we’ve wasted our opportunity, we wasted a major opportunity of rethinking and reinventing much of the stuff we believed was crucial and essential that clearly is not.
One reason why he is wearier is that his children contracted Coronavirus.
The upcoming Star Wars series isn’t going to be returning to filming straight away, and there will be differences in how the show is filmed, to be more safe.
This 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. It will be set five years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. A release date for the series has not yet been announced, and it will also see Genevieve O’Reilly, reprise her role as Mon Mothma, along with Stellan Skarsgard, Denise Gough and Kyle Soller.
