The ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Prequel Series Will Start Shooting This Year

After the success of ‘The Mandalorian’, Disney Plus already has plans for another ‘Star Wars’ series – and apparently, it might come sooner than you think.

Last year, Disney announced that Diego Luna would be back as Cassian Andor in a prequel series of ‘Rogue One’, and he has shared that filming will actually already be starting this year. While promoting Season 2 of Netflix’s ‘Narcos: Mexico’, he told ET in an interview that they are doing it this year. “It’s happening, and I’m getting ready for it,” he says excitedly.

While Diego admits that he doesn’t know much about what’s in store, he shares that he is very excited after having read some of the scripts. “It is a different approach because of the beauty and it’s how things happen,” he adds. “It’s not the typical way of approaching a story. It’s about how things happen, which is the same that happened in ‘Rogue One’. You know the ending, but you don’t know how it happened, and we have that challenge in front of us again, which is exciting.”

The series will follow Cassian’s adventures during the earlier years of the Rebellion and will take place before the events of ‘Rogue One’ (obviously coz we all know how that ended). Meanwhile, the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor will start production in 2021.
