The daring Cassian Andor became one of the bravest members of the Rebel Alliance that would steal the Death Star plans and thus set the first sequence of Episode IV: A new hope.
However, the character’s merits apparently do not extend to the actor who plays him. According to Mexican Diego Luna, Lucasfilm does not have enough confidence to reveal secrets around the projected prequel to Rogue One.
Recently, the 40-year-old histrion met at The Tonight Show (conducted by Jimmy Fallon) and addressed the theme of that upcoming Disney + series, which will feature Luna in the lead role. Unfortunately, nothing could advance in this regard because the production team has it blindly.
“I’m part of [the show] and I can’t say anything, but not because I don’t want to or by contract, but because they don’t tell me anything,” admitted the interpreter of Cassian Andor in the Star Wars franchise. «They do n’t trust me. I think it’s because I like mezcal, man.
I tend to get drunk and say things. I also used to lose my script while we were filming Rogue One. I used to leave my script everywhere. They realized that »
Insisting with a humorous response, Diego Luna added that Lucasfilm’s distrust could be because he would want to use his knowledge of the project as a mechanism to link.
“I was single, so it was also great as: ‘Do you want to know what the movie is about,’” said the actor.
Since the end of 2018, Disney confirmed a spin-off series focused on the hero of Rogue One, which would arrive on its streaming platform after The Mandalorian.
Without delving into details about the argument, it was claimed that it would be an “exciting spy thriller ” where the Galactic Empire would persist as a powerful rival to win. Along with Cassian Andor’s, Disney + also has a series focused on Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will involve Ewan McGregor’s return to the Star Wars franchise.
