‘Andor’ Trailer: Tony Gilroy, Diego Luna & More Tell The Origin Of A ‘Star Wars’ Rebel Spy

Lucasfilm might be allegedly done with the Skywalker Saga for now, but the elements around it, like the dark period when the Empire ruled the galaxy, are far from done being fully explored. This dark time was covered in the prequel movie, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and now that story and one character, in particular, are getting their own prequel in “Andor,” a “Star Wars” limited-series centering on Diego Luna‘s Cassian Andor rebel, years before the events of ‘Rogue One.’

The “Star Wars” universe continues to expand on the small screen through Lucasfilm‘s many growing Disney+ shows. On the horizon later this summer, “Andor” centers on Diego Luna‘s Cassian Andor from “Rogue One,” exploring how his character became involved with the Rebellion. The story will be told in the form of a spy and film noir genre rather than the usual action-adventure tone we’ve seen in countless films/spinoffs as the show hopes to become appealing to a wider audience.

And though there are no current accusations of sexual misconduct, Rudin is alleged to have verbally and physically abused dozens of assistants and colleagues on his way to earning Oscars.
