Arjona will star in the series along with Diego Luna. The show will focus around Luna’s Cassian Andor character from the 2016 Rogue One feature film. The “spy thriller” will be set in the beginning days of the Rebellion against the Empire. Disney is currently mum on Arjona’s character, but she will have a major role.
The film’s co-writer Tony Gilroy will pen the pilot and serve as series showrunner. Gilroy will also direct several episodes during the season. Furthermore, Alan Tudyk, Stellan Skarsgard, Denise Gough, Genevieve O’Reilly, and Kyle Soller will round out the cast.
Disney Plus’ Rogue One series is not the only Star Wars series in works. The Ewan McGregor led Obi-Wan Kenobi series is also currently in development! The Force is clearly strong with the streaming service!
