Last month, Disney+ and Lucasfilm revealed the first sizzle reel from Star Wars: Andor, the Rogue One prequel series starring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Lucasfilm previously indicated that Alan Tudyk will also reprise his role as the droid K-2SO. However, Tudyk recently told Collider that he won’t be appearing in the first season.
“They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there,” said Tudyk. “I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on… I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season.”
Tudyk also jokingly referred to his onstage presence during the show’s initial announcement.
“I’m [in] all these announcements for the show,” recalled Tudyk. “And I had suggested at D23 when we announced in the show, that it be called K2 Fast K2 Furious: The Cassian Andor Series and, um, that’s not happening, it’s called Andor!”
Additionally, Tudyk expressed his hope that a second season of Andor arrives before he gets too much older. That’s because his elaborate mo-cap suit can be very uncomfortable.
“I do know this: I have to be on stilts for it, because the character is 7’1″, and I’m not one of those guys that says, ‘somebody else do the motion capture, and I’ll voice it later,'” added Tudyk. “I’ll have to do the motion capture, and I turn 50 in March. So I hope they get to it soon, because I’m not going to be on stilts in, like, five years. I’m not doing it!”
Star Wars: Andor will premiere on Disney+ in 2022.
