The Cassian Andor series is already filming while Obi-Wan is set to get underway on January 4
With every new episode of The Mandalorian leaving our insatiable appetites desperate for more of the same, all eyes are on Disney Plus’ other Star Wars shows which have been rumored to be getting underway soon – and today we have some welcome news.
Diego Luna has confirmed that the Cassian Andor series has already begun filming in London. During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the Rogue One star opened up about making “a short film with some friends” and touched upon exploring the character in the lead up to Rogue One.
“It’s basically everything you have to know to understand Rogue One,” Luna said. “The story of the character before. I can spoil the ending I guess!” Luna then added, “It’s nice to go into a story you already know the ending. Now you can take the nuances and the layers. I think it’s fun to do something that isn’t just about getting to the end. It’s about delaying that.”
The Cassian Andor series has been described as a “rousing spy thriller that will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”
Ordinarily, this news would be more than enough to have us dancing around like a Wookiee on Life Day, but the fun doesn’t end there. Production List recently posted an update that confirms a January production start date for Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series, starring Ewan McGregor.
The project is expected to be presented as a limited series consisting of just six episodes. According to the listing, production for Kenobi will begin on January 4, with filming set to take place in both Boston and London.
Exciting times ahead in the galaxy far, far away…
