    Diego Luna's new film Wander Darkly is now playing in theaters, and The Hollywood Reporter had a chance to speak with the actor about the film and of course ask him some questions about his next big project, the Disney Plus Star Wars live-action series Andor.



    A couple of weeks ago, during Disney's Investor Day webcast, Lucasfilm unveiled a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that revealed production on Andor was underway, and gave us a glimpse of what to expect in terms of production value. In fact, even though Lucasfilm almost reinvented the wheel with The Mandalorian when they introduced the world to the Stagecraft technology, Andor might be taking another path. As we saw in the sizzle reel, it looks like the Rogue One prequel series will be using a lot of traditional sets. However, when asked about this matter, Luna was rather coy. Here is what he had to say:


    As all Star Wars fans know, technology or production design isn't enough to tell a good story, you also need great characters. Diego Luna is very excited to reprise the role of Cassian Andor because, as we saw in Rogue One, he is a very complex character.



    Tony Gilroy will be the showrunner of Star Wars: Andor, which is shooting right now in London. The show will have 12 episodes and is expected to premiere in 2022 exclusively on Disney Plus.

    To say I am excited about this series would be the understatement of the century

    I knew people will be excited about the show once footage begins showing up.

    This has the potential of being a very powerful and important show for the franchise! :D

    I really want to see the actual birth of the rebellion...what happened when , where, how and by whom? Who is the “Samuel Adams” of the Rebellion?

    I hope He gets to meet Jabba. That would make Diego Luna so happy...xD

    “The texture of Jabba is something I need to discover,” Diego says, the disconcerting nature of his words amplified by the stark white backdrop behind him.

    Same here! It's in my top 3 (see the other thread)!!!

    And the fact Tony Gilroy is in charge of the scripts (hope all of it) the excitement is bigger. With RO showed a big sense of continuity and understanding of the whole story. Plus he is a serious and competent writer and he knows perfectly how to write spy flicks.
    And with the recent news of the show having the "same scale" as RO, this can be a huge and amazing addition to the universe. Beyond excited. Can't wait for this!

    @Madmartigan So I had to go back and watch a couple scenes from R1....remember when Cassian said “I’ve been in this fight since I was 6 yrs old...” Would love to get the backstory on that....
