Disney’s Cassian Andor Series To Reportedly Show The Characters Backstory

1 min read

Following the massive success of The Mandalorian, Disney+ is already moving forward with a second Star Wars show about Cassian Andor, one of the main characters from the Star Wars prequel film Rogue One.

Luna is confirmed to reprise his role, while Alan Tudyk will reprise his role of droid K-2SO, with much of the film’s narrative being kept under wraps.

Reports, however, suggest that the show will feature flashbacks to Cassian’s past, checking in with the rebel fighter at both 9 and 13 years old. 

If true, the flashbacks could take place during the Clone Wars, before the Rebellion and the Empire began fighting each other for control of the galaxy. Lucasfilm is also eyeing to cast a nine-year-old to play the younger sister of Andor. 

While none of this has yet to be confirmed by Disney, the company has confirmed that the series is set to begin shooting early next year.
