2018 certainly had its fair share of big Star Wars announcements. From The Mandalorian to The Clone Wars series returning, it truly was a year full of big surprises. One of the biggest kept secrets was revealed in early November when Disney/Lucasfilm announced a new live-action series starting Diego Luna, who would be reprising his role as Captain Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
"The series follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire."
Production Weekly, a website that tracks film and television production information and schedules, has posted on Twitter that the series will beginning production in October of 2019. Obviously this means the live-action series will not debut with other new shows such as The Mandalorian when Disney+ launches at the end of next year.
Production is scheduled to commence in October 2019. https://t.co/Hy0SE2x01t— Production Weekly (@prodweek) December 31, 2018
