MCU fans clearly have no shortage of content as Marvel continuously delivers amazing shows to its audiences. But it may leave the Star War fans a little stranded and hungry for more stories. While the franchise may not match MCU’s spectacle, the audiences have currently been getting interesting content with The Bad Batch and Star Wars Visions. However, the franchise’s live-action films and stories are still a little far in the future.
Replacing Mando’s third season is the Book of Boba Fett, which is scheduled to release later this year. Though, the audience is pretty much unbothered by this switch, because seeing our favourite bounty hunter return was a lot of fun last year. Which is why fans are nothing but excited about the inclusion.
Following the show, Star Wars might be seen picking up the pace as there are a number of projects the franchise has planned on releasing. These include Obi-Won, and formerly postponed The Mandalorian’s third season, and also the massively discussed project The Acolyte, the shoot for which is supposed to begin in London in February next year.
Andor features the return of Diego Luna’s character Cassian Andor from Rogue One. While there is still little information about the plot of the show, Luna appears to be quite optimistic about what the show will deliver, and is proud of everything they have come up with.
Diego Luna opened up about his next appearance in the Star Wars Disney+ show Andor, in a press release for his upcoming Amazon Prime series Pan Y Circo.
Without any wait, Luna revealed that fans will “definitely see familiar faces,” and that “this project is like no other:
“You’ll definitely see familiar faces… I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t spoil the ending if you’ve seen [Stars Wars: Rogue One] already. No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending.”
We are all familiar with how at the end of Star Wars: Rogue One, everyone in the film dies, and with that, the fate of Cassian Andor is sealed. Diego also said that “[they’re] done with the shooting now:
“To be honest, it’s been such a blessing to do this job and to do it under these circumstances… “I had the chance to work with a team that I couldn’t be more proud of and admire more. It’s a hard-core moment to be out there shooting, and we were really lucky. We’re done with the shooting now and getting it ready for audiences to see it.”
Luna admitted that while he “can’t say much,” the show Andor is “something that [he] really wanted to do” and doing so has made him “more than happy:”
“While I can’t say much, what I can tell you is that the experience was literally a transformation for me. It’s something that I really wanted to do and that I thought I was not going to be able to do. I’m more than happy.”
Diego went on to direct the conversation to the start and talked about how audiences “have a voice… [they] have power:”
“Audiences can be heard; we have to send a message… We want to see our stories out there, we want to see and feel represented. We want to connect with those characters and those stories we see in film and all platforms. We have a voice as audiences, and we have power. We have to send the right message when you buy a movie ticket or when you click on the various platforms, you’re sending a message. And when you don’t, you’re also sending a message. So, let’s be responsible because we can transform things and make sure we are represented more and represented better on screen.”
Diego disclosed the facts that fans are about to see some familiar faces from the previous Star Wars but stayed subtle on who they will be. As for us, it is impossible for us to not make assumptions, especially after all the reports that have already confirmed the involvement of so many returning characters.
There is news that stars like Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker will be seen making their appearances to the world. To make it more interesting, the world of Andor will be bestowed with the presence of a number of new faces like Alex Lawther and Robert Emms.
Diego Luna’s composed and self-assured attitude is hard to go unnoticed. This has gotten fans to be thrilled for Star Wars’ Andor Cassian’s Disney+ adventure. If the instalment is even close to winning the acclaim that Rogue One did, it is safe to say that Andor’s fate in the world will be brighter and bigger. Until then, we have our hopes and excitement raised.
