Andors Diego Luna Explains Star Wars Series Rogue One Differences

Andor star Diego Luna explained how the Star Wars prequel series will differentiate itself from Rogue One A Star Wars Story. Luna told Empire that Andor will be more characterfocused than the film arguing that Rogue One is more about an event than the actual journey of [the] characters. Its quite amazing to start a show where its not about where we can end—its about how did we end there?

Created by Tony Gilroy who cowrote Rogue One with Chris Weitz Andor will serve as a prequel to the Star Wars spinoff film with Season 1 taking place five years before the events of the movie. The series received a twoseason order from Disney+ with each season consisting of 12 episodes. Along with Luna the series stars Star Wars newcomers Stellan Skarsgård Adria Arjona Denise Gough Kyle Soller and Fiona Shaw.

Lunas Cassian Andor made his Star Wars debut in 216s Rogue One. Joining a ragtag group of rebels including Felicity Jones Jyn Erso Alan Tudyk K2SO and Donnie Yen Chirrut Îmwe the team is tasked with locating the plans of the Death Star and transmitting them to the Rebel Alliance. The group eventually succeeds in their task but not before they all meet their demise including Andor. However their sacrifice would not be in vain as Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance would use those plans in Star Wars A New Hope to destroy the Empires destructive weapon.

Luna wont be the only familiar face returning for Andor. Forest Whitaker will return as the radical rebel Saw Gerrera while Genevieve OReilly will be back as Rebel Alliance leader Mon Mothma who Gilroy said will play a memorable role in the series. I bet that when episode 14 plays when Mon Mothma finishes the episode that therell be people tweeting about Mon Mothma he teased.

Andor is one of the many Star Wars TV projects Disney+ and Lucasfilm have on deck. Also in development are Tales of the Jedi The Bad Batch Season 2 The Mandalorian Season 3 Star Wars Visions Season 2 Ahsoka Skeleton Crew Lando The Acolyte and Young Jedi Adventures. This is on top of The Book of Boba Fett and ObiWan Kenobi which are currently not set to return for second seasons.
