The untitled Cassian Andor live-action TV show follows the character introduced to us in Rogue One, before the events of that film. It is said to be spy thriller, and will air on Disney+ in 2021. At D23 Expo 2019, Kathleen Kennedy said that the total runtime will be around 10 hours, and that shooting has already begun in London. In April 2020, production was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, with visual effects artist Neal Scanlan reporting that six weeks worth of pre-production had been completed prior to the lockdown.
Finally we have some news regarding the upcoming Disney+ series following Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Cassian Andor. As we already know, Diego Luna is reprising his role as Cassian Andor with Alan Tudyk joining him as K-2SO, but a new returning cast member has been confirmed in the shape of Genevieve O'Reilly. O'Reilly previously portrayed Mon Mothma in Rogue One and in a scene that was famously left on the digital cutting room floor of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Stellan Skarsgård, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller are also joining the cast in unspecified co-starring roles. The co-writer of Rogue One, Tony Gilroy, will be returning to pick up the reigns as showrunner from Stephen Schiff as well as writing and directing. Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler), Beau Willimon (House of Cards), and Stephen Schiff (The Americans) will also write episodes for the series. This news comes via StarWars.com who have also indicated that as of yet there has been no announcement regarding a release date. Production on the series has been hit by the outbreak of COVID-19, but visual effects artist Neal Scanlan recently revealed that six weeks worth of pre-production had been completed prior to the lockdown.
Diego Luna, who played rebel spy Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has hinted that filming on his character's live action Star Wars TV show is due to start filming very soon. During an interview with Mexican news source El Siglo de Torreon, Luna confirmed that he has already received scripts for the series and is expecting filming to start "soon". It was previously reported that filming for this series would be starting in October this year which could still fit within the definition of "soon", but this news could also mean that production is starting earlier than expected. The show is set to be a rousing spy thriller which will fill in new details about Cassian Andor and the rebellion prior to the events of Rogue One, with Stephen Schiff (The Americans) on board as Executive Producer and showrunner. It's expected that the Cassian Andor TV show will release exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service in 2021. Meanwhile, the first Star Wars live action TV show The Mandalorian is currently in production and will release with Disney+ in Novemeber 2019.
So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup. Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel). https://www.starwars.com/news/cassian-andor-live-action-series-announced Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential. Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.
