THE STAR Wars cinematic and TV universe continues to expand as more projects enter production.
The world of Star Wars always leaves room for more to be explored, which is why even their prequel film, Rogue One, is getting a television prequel named Andor.
Who is in the cast of Andor?
二月里 2018, former Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed plans for several Star Wars productions.
More than a year prior to the launch of Disney+, Iger said in a statement: “We are developing not just one, but a few Star Wars series specifically for the Disney direct-to-consumer app.”
“We’ve mentioned that and we are close to being able to reveal at least one of the entities that is developing that for us.”
The former CEO further shared: ” They have an idea for a number of films and at some later date I’m sure we’ll disclose to all of you just what those are.”
“They are focused on a point in time in the Star Wars mythology and taking it from there.”
One of those entities turned out to be Andor, which is scheduled for an undisclosed release date on Disney+ sometime in 2022.
As production on the program went underway, details about the cast starring in Andor were disclosed to the public – here’s a look at the show’s roster.
Reprising his role as Captain Cassian Andor from Rogue One is Diego Luna.

In Andor, Diego plays the titular character featured in the Star Wars prequel.
The actor told fans in a statement: “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me.”
“I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.”
Diego also shared: “We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”
Stellan Skarsgård is also among the actors appearing in Andor.
During an interview with Screen Rant, he said of the program: ” don’t know what to say because they are very secretive and you have to sign so many papers and to get the script you have to have a sort of double verification and you still can’t read it.”
“首先, the writing is really good. It’s the same writer that did Rogue One.”
Stellan added: “And also to work with Diego Luna, who’s an old friend.”
“My character is…出色地, you’ll see. It’s fun to play because he has a lot of different faces to show.”
Starring in Andor alongside Diego and Stellan is Adria Arjona.
Without disclosing her exact role, Adria told Flaunt: “I don’t know what I can say about it. It’s Star Wars!”
“I’ve gone up for every Star Wars [role] you could think of. I was waiting for the perfect one – I really believe this is the one.”
The actress is familiar to audiences for her appearances in Pacific Rim: Uprising, Morbius, and Triple Frontier.
While some of the details surrounding the characters remain under wraps, Star Wars fans can already guess who Forest Whitaker is playing.
Reprising the role of Saw Gerrera, Forest first brought the character to the big screen in Rogue One.
Saw’s mentors are the iconic figures Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
