Buckle up, Star Wars fans. Disney+ is planning an ambitious slate of ten original Star Wars series over the next few years. Several of the announcements were made today at the Disney Investors Day presentation. However, one of the previously confirmed shows has a new name. The Rogue One prequel series following Cassian Andor will now be called Star Wars: Andor.
Diego Luna will reprise his role as Cassian Andor, while Alan Tudyk will also return as the voice of K-2S0, Cassian’s droid companion. Genevieve O’Reilly has also signed on as Mon Mothma, a role she portrayed in Rogue One and Revenge of the Sith.
The rest of the cast includes Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller.
According to Disney and Lucasfilm, Star Wars: Andor will take place five years before Rogue One. Production began only two weeks ago, so there’s not much footage to show off. Regardless, Lucasfilm did drop a new sizzle reel, which you can watch below.
