Diego Luna is set to star in new ‘Star Wars’ spinoff series.
Diego Luna will star in a new “Star Wars” series for Disney’s upcoming streaming service. The show is a prequel to “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story.” A video was shared on Twitter of Cassian Andor actor Diego Luna announcing he is about to start filming for Disney+’s Rogue One spinoff series. Disney previously announced two years ago that Luna would return as Cassian in a new live-action solo series for Disney+. The series is one of a few Star Wars shows to come out of the streaming service, with massively unsuccessful The Mandalorian and the long-delayed Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
In the show, Cassian is a rebel intelligence officer who, along with Jyn Esro (Felicity Jones), leads a team on a mission to steal the Death Star plans and deliver them to the rebellion. They win the fight, but the opponents murder the team in the end. Fans were heartbroken and hence were too excited to know that Cassian will get a solo spinoff. Apart from Cassian, K-2SO will also bless our screens with Alan Tudyk as the voiceover artist. Due to script rewrites and corona pandemic, the makers could not shoot it in the original schedule, i.e. June. Luna revealed that the shooting would start soon.
Fans went gaga over the official announcement made by Luna. Twitter user POED4MERON shared a video of Luna. In the video, Luna seems to be inside a gym, and he informs the fan in Spanish that he is in London to film the series. Check out the video below:

Other cast members
The officially announced names are Stellan Skarsgård, Kyle Soller, and 6 Underground’s Adria Arjona in mystery roles. Initially, Tony Gilroy was supposed to direct the first three episodes, but Tony Haynes replaced him due to scheduling issues.
Fans are more than eager to finally see Luna shooting for the series after a delay for such a long time. The production has not revealed many details to maintain the suspense. However, it seems that Rogue One spinoff will have a grim, more mature vibe, with some descriptions explaining it as a “spy thriller.” Similar to other details, nothing is known regarding the release of the series.
