It looks like The Mandalorian isn’t the only live-action series heading to the new Disney Streaming Service. In an announcement that just broke a couple minutes ago, Starwars.com has revealed that the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character would be returning in a new spy thriller for the streaming network.
Given the events of the film, it’s pretty obvious that the new story will be a prequel. The show is set to go into production next year and will focus on Cassian Andor’s adventures as a rebel spy during the “formative years of the rebellion.”
On returning to the role, Luna had this to say:
“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. 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.”
