    Cassain Andor?



    CASSIAN ANDOR LIVE-ACTION SERIES ANNOUNCED
    DIEGO LUNA RETURNS AS THE ROGUE ONE HERO IN A SPY THRILLER FOR DISNEY'S DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER STREAMING SERVICE.
    Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series, which will go into production next year, 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. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

    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. A release date for the series has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for the latest updates.

    Actually, that might be kinda interesting. I liked the moral grayness of the Rebellion in Rogue One.

    Speaking of K2SO, check out the Secrets of the Empire virtual reality experience at the rec room near the Skydome.

    I did it in Las Vegas and it freaked me the fuck out. Excellent experience. The first time K2SO (voiced by Tudyk) shows up, it really gives you a sense of how big that droid really is. Well worth the cost.

    What a boring idea. A dull as shit character whose fate we already know.

    I agree. So far I’ve not been too interested in any upcoming ideas for Star Wars.

    Resistance animated series? Meh
    Mandalorian? Meh
    Rogue One prequel? Meh
    Rian Johnson trilogy? Hell no

    That’s not to say I’m not interested in Star Wars at all. I recently purchased Timothy Zahn’s new novel Thrawn: Alliances, which was a good read.

    And I’d be up for a Knights of the Old Republic TV show.

    But these other ideas sound boring to me.

    Rogue One is the best of new Star Wars. That being said, I have little interest in a Cassandra Andor series. He only became a sympathetic/interesting/ respectable character once he chose not to kill Galen Erso.

    I've had mixed feelings to the whole SW sequel effort. What I'm finding, a few years in, is that it's really crushing my interest in all things SW rather than rekindling it, and I'm way more fan-invested in the MCU these days.
