Disney’s movie and television projects have experienced numerous delays due to the current health situation making it difficult for production to carry on.
Although season two of Disney+’s The Mandalorian will be released on time, other Star Wars series aren’t so lucky.
Actor Diego Luna was set to reprise his role as rebel spy Cassian Andor in a prequel series based on 2016’s Star Wars film, Rogue One. Recently Luna shared with ComicBook.com the project has not been able to move forward. It appears filming might resume soon, although he doesn’t want the cast and crew to rush into anything.
“Shooting is starting around the world, so slowly, we’re going back, but there’s no rush,” Luna stated. “To me, what this pandemic brought to my attention is that there [are] priorities. We have to be cautious, and we have to be wise on when and how to go back. And the how is the most important, because if we go back to be who we were, we’ve wasted our opportunity, we wasted a major opportunity of rethinking and reinventing much of the stuff we believed was crucial and essential that clearly is not.”
The Rogue One prequel series will be coming to Disney+ and will feature the same writer as the original film, Tony Gilroy. Alan Tudyk will also be returning as the voice of droid K-2SO, along with Genevieve O’Reilly. The series also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller.
