Ahead of the season one finale later this month, Andor, which is preparing for season two production, debuted its final teaser as Kathleen Kennedy, the head of Lucasfilm, opened her panel at D23 with a promise of new revelations from the Star Wars galaxy.
Diego Luna plays Cassian Andor in the movie Andor, one of the important players who assisted in stealing the Death Star schematics during the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Kennedy mentioned that the series will have 24 episodes overall, referred to it as a spy-thriller, and applauded writer Tony Gilroy, famed for the Bourne franchise, for infusing it with his signature “Bourne suspense.”
While Luna, O’Reilly, Arjona, and Soller waved to spectators, the cast joined Kennedy on stage to loud applause. It’s about a revolutionary awakening, Luna added. Soller made fun of playing a villain, saying his character is one you’ll “love to despise.”
As the show’s executive producer, Luna highlighted that he had greater freedom than is typically given to actors. As an actor, you frequently find yourself thrust into already-in-progress situations, but in this one, Luna remarked, “I got the chance to be there from beginning to end.”
The 12-episode season, which is broken up into three-episode blocks that each span a year of the plot, will feel like different movies, Luna previously told The Hollywood Reporter. The actor said, “Time also passes in the gap between each block, allowing us to evolve and change.”
The Mandalorian season three, The Acolyte, which recently cast Squid Game actor Lee Jung-Jae opposite Amandla Stenberg, and Ahsoka, which stars Rosario Dawson, are all upcoming Star Wars projects.
