Continuing the tradition of TV series featuring characters who will have to die at some point in the near future, Lucasfilm is developing a live-action series for the Disney+ streaming service starring Diego Luna, reprising his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna in Thursday’s announcement. “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.”
Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the news.
The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of the Rebel Alliance spy during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One.
“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,” reads a description.
A release date for the series has not been announced.
This will be the second live-action Star Wars series. The Mandalorian is also in production.
