On the surface, Cassian Andor may seem like a character who doesn’t “need” more of his backstory told. But we have plenty of conversations in the Star Wars fandom about the need for representation — which, in terms of the big picture, simply means everyone should get the chance to see their very real stories play out on-screen. It looks like this may be happening with Disney+’s Andor series, which will focus heavily on the journey of a refugee.
This week, Vanity Fair published an enormous behind-the-scenes exposé on Lucasfilms’ slate of upcoming Star Wars television shows for Disney+. We got confirmations of the release windows for Andor, Ahsoka, and The Mandalorian season 3, as well as plenty of interesting tidbits about Obi-Wan Kenobi, the upcoming limited series which will see Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprise their roles as Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader from the prequel trilogy.

Diego Luna On Tackling Universal Issues From A Mexican Perspective With ‘Pan Y Circo’: “The Solution Is Around Us”
Diego Luna returns with more episodes of Amazon Prime Video’s Pan Y Circo, a two-time Emmy Award-winning series that sees the actor share a meal with strangers to discuss various topics that are critical to the world at large from a Mexican perspective. Due to the pandemic (and not because of his busy schedule working on Star Wars: Andor), the show has had to evolve in a multitude of ways. Mainly, instead of a Season 2, the series will drop four specials: “Access to Healthcare” (available to stream now), “Crisis in Democracy” (November 26), and early 2022 will see Luna travel...

Lucasfilm sure does love its cameos, right? Especially in the Disney era of the “Star Wars” franchise, it’s pretty common to see fan-favorite characters show up in films and TV series just to get that momentary squee reaction from viewers. Well, you’d probably be shocked to know that is likely going to continue with the upcoming “Andor” Disney+ series.
Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm they have begun using the Marvel method to create a Star Wars cinematic universe. And that means lots of cross-pollination of characters, think Luke Skywalker popping up in The Mandalorian or Darth Maul in Solo. And that trend isn’t likely to change any time soon, as Diego Luna says there will be some cameos in his upcoming Andor series on Disney+.
Diego Luna revealed that Star Wars: Andor has wrapped up filming. Luna isn't just starring in the 12-episode series; he's also acting as an Executive Producer. Most exciting of all, he also told Deadline that "You'll definitely see some familiar faces" in the upcoming prequel. But he was sparse with the details, especially since he doesn't want to "ruin the ending" for audiences.
