Star Wars: Andor - Disney+ - September 21, 2022

Recommended Posts




EXCLUSIVE: As Disney+ prepares to start production on its new Rogue One spinoff series, it will be doing so with a new director as sources tell Deadline Toby Haynes will helm the first three episodes, replacing Tony Gilroy.


Sources say Gilroy dropped off as director for COVID-19-related travel reasons. Gilroy lives in New York and had to make a decision quickly on whether he would head over to the UK for the shoot; in the end, he thought it would be best that he stay in New York and have Haynes take over his directing duties.


Haynes already was high on the list of directors who would helm future episodes and since he also already was in the UK, all parties thought this would make the most sense. Gilroy will stay very much involved with the series as exec producer and showrunner.


The series centers on the Cassian Andor character (Diego Luna, reprising his role from the film) and is in pre-production with plans to start shooting next month.

Decided to do some searching tonight and ran across a tweet that was mentioned in this report from a Spanish Superhero blog:



After doing some more searching, I found a longer clip here:


(edit:  Source IG was made on Nov 3rd, FWIW)


Not much, but it looks like Diego Luna is now in London.  Whether they're actually shooting now, getting ready to shoot, or trying to dodge the 'rona, is not quite clear.


Either way, the 'rona permitting, looks like the Cassian Andor series is finally about to take off. 👍

Andor, a tense nail-biting spy thriller created by Tony Gilroy, is set to arrive on Disney+ in 2022. Diego Luna, reprising the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor from Rogue One, will be joined by a fantastic new cast that includes Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma. Production kicked off three weeks ago in London.
