Cassian Andor is one of the Star Wars characters who will have his own series and there are already some details.
Star Wars: Andor is on the way and everything seems to indicate that it could become a great success, as it happened with The Mandalorian.
Cassian Andor was the protagonist of one of the best spin-offs of Star Wars before the arrival of The Mandalorian (which is in its third season ), so it was logical to think that, after Disney took the reins of the universe created by George Lucas, that would be a story that they would like to continue exploring.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story made Diego Luna one of the rebel pilots who carried out the plan to steal the Death Star plans, which helped Luke Skywalker and the rebellion destroy the mighty ship. /weapon with which the Empire planned to destroy the planets that dared to oppose them.
All, or almost all, of the soldiers who were part of the plan died at the end of the film, but Disney knew that there was a lot of potential in the character of Cassian Andor and it was not long before they decided to call Diego Luna back to continue exploring. the character’s story. We now know that the Star Wars: Andor series is part of a much larger plan with Disney looking to expand the universe even further, and everything indicates that the project is already underway.
Disney has revealed the first trailer for Andor, where we get a glimpse of the origin of the character, who is recruited after an invasion of his land. Likewise, we see that the tone of the series is dark, in addition to seeing some of the characters that will accompany the protagonist.
The first photos of the set
The Bespin Bulletin, which is a Star Wars news and rumors podcast, shared a series of exclusive images from the set of Cassian Andor’s series on location in Buckinghamshire, as well as claiming that filming is about to begin.

For now there are not many details, but it is known that the character of Diego Luna will be the protagonist and Desert News assures that it will be a spy thriller that will be located a few years before Andor was part of the Death Star plan.
Luna told The Hollywood Reporter that the series will introduce a new way to explore Rebel battles. “I think it’s really interesting to tell a story even though we know where it ends. The way you can approach a story like this inevitably leads you into a deeper thought process. I tend to use that word a lot. So once you know what Cassianis capable of, there is room for so much exploration, and that is something that excites me a lot as an actor. I think the format of a series is amazing because we have so much time to explore all those layers. What happens in ‘Rogue One’ is something we can really reflect on, and what’s behind something like (sacrificing an informant). I think it’s a very interesting challenge, the one we have ahead of us. So I’m really excited to get back into that character because I really enjoyed playing him and I was really happy with what the movie represents. ‘ Rogue One was a story of ordinary people. It was just normal people doing amazing things, and in a way, it’s a movie that reminds us of the power we all have if we have a conviction. So yes, I feel blessed to have the opportunity to revisit this role.”
