Diego Luna (or Cassian Andor, as you might know him) has quite a bit of information about his titular Disney+ series for us. Including some teases about it.
Diego Luna, the actor behind Cassion Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, recently spoke to Deadline about his upcoming Andor Disney+ series. In particular, he mentions that they have finally finished shooting for the series. This is a rather notable achievement, considering the whole COVID-19 thing going on. It’s also notable in that now they have finished with the filming, it’s just one step closer to being something we can watch. Luna’s exact words on this subject to Deadline were:
I had the chance to work with a team that I couldn’t be more proud of and admire more. It’s a hard-core moment to be out there shooting, and we were really lucky. We’re done with the shooting now and getting it ready for audiences to see it.
Diego Luna also mentions one other thing in Deadline, and that’s a brief tease of the plot of Andor. He simply says that “You’ll definitely see familiar faces”. That’s it. Other than that, he apparently refuses to spoil the ending of this prequel series to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. His exact words were “No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending”.
Andor: A Diego Luna Story?
Frankly, this is Diego Luna being a bit of a troll prior to the release of Andor. The only concrete things he’s said is about the concluding of filming for this Disney+ series. That bit about the “familiar faces” is a lot more of a tease than anything else. We see that many Star Wars series and films will feature cameos from other Star Wars media. It’s nothing new as a concept. What would be interesting is who would show up here, but that would be going into spoiler territory, which Luna explicitly says he won’t do. Oh, well, we’ll take what we can get. At least, until we can finally see Andor.
Diego Luna is officially announcing that they’ve finished filming for Andor. Oh, and he mentions that we’ll see “familiar faces” in this Star Wars Disney+ series. Whose faces will those be? Well, he isn’t telling, due to him not wanting to spoil things before we actually get to see this 12-episode prequel series to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Disney+ sometime in 2022. We’ll just have to be patient until then.
