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.
An "insider" has reportedly informed We Got This Covered that there is a Boba Fett TV show being developed for Disney+. Further rumours surrounding the project infer that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for this series. As with all rumours we are taking this with a hefty pinch of salt, after all Disney are already working on The Mandalorian which will launch with Disney+ in November this year. Those of us who have been around the rumour mill for a while might remember the whisperings of a young Boba Fett appearing in the ultimately cancelled Star Wars Underworld project. At that time Daniel Logan was apparently set to reprise his role of the up and coming bounty hunter, but Logan is now in his 30s. In October 2018 it was reported that a Boba Fett anthology film had been shelved due to the "poor box office performance" of Solo. Is there room for a Boba Fett TV show as well as The Mandalorian? I'm not sure there is. It's entirely possible that these rumours are actually leaks from The Mandalorian, given the similar premise, but like a lot of rumours it is also likely that it could just be wishful thinking on the part of the fandom.
Principle filming for The Mandalorian has finished, according to the folks over at Disney. There is still no word on a release date for the new Star Wars TV show, which is set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, but new information is expected to be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in April. Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) is playing the titular role of the Mandalorian, with supporting roles from Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), and Emily Swallow (Supernatural). Little else is currently known about the show, but producers previously teased that classic trilogy characters R5-D4 and IG-88 will make an appearance. The Mandalorian debuts on the Disney+ streaming service, later this year.
