We may have to wait a bit longer for the Disney+ deep dive on how the Star Wars rebellion began. After announcing a Cassian Andor-centered Rogue One prequel series in 2019 with Diego Luna stepping back into the hero's shoes, production was supposed to begin in 2020, only to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, rebellions begin with hope and we are still very optimistic about getting this series in our eyeballs as soon as possible. In the meantime, here's everything we know about Disney+'s next Star Wars TV show so far.
Additional cast members: It was announced in April that Alan Tudyk would also reprise his role as K-2SO, the former Imperial droid reprogrammed for the rebellion, and that news was confirmed on the D23 stage. Also in April, Variety broke the news that Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller were also joining the cast — but as with everything Star Wars, specifics about their roles are still being kept under wraps. In August 2020, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Adria Arjona is joining the cast, though details about her character also being kept close to the vest.
The official title: The show still doesn't have one, but Tudyk suggested on-stage that it should be called K2-Fast, K2-Furious, which honestly seems pretty great.
Premiere date: The show was expected to begin production in 2020, but it is unknown at this time whether that schedule has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Time period: The series is set before the events of Rogue One, which set up the destruction of the Death Star in the original Star Wars trilogy. It will follow Cassian's adventures as a rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion before Luke (Mark Hamill) ever swung a lightsaber.
