The Star Wars franchise has launched loads of droid characters who’ve turn into beloved. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gave us Ok-2SO, a reprogrammed Imperial safety droid with a darkly sarcastic character. Given Ok-2SO’s shut relationship with Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), it’s solely pure that he would seem within the upcoming Rogue One prequel collection. Though Alan Tudyk will reprise the function of Ok-2SO for the Andor collection, he gained’t be showing within the first season, and showrunner Tony Gilroy has defined why.
“From a storytelling perspective, there are a number of causes,” Tony Gilroy mentioned on the Tv Critics Affiliation’s press tour. “I might say, ‘Wait and see.’ It’s a narrative we’re keen to inform. It’s troublesome to hold an Imperial droid round with you and never draw all types of consideration. It’s a troublesome piece of baggage. After we do it, we’ll do it in a spectacular style versus presenting it and ignoring it, or presenting it or hiding it, or the dangerous variations we’d have been pressured to do.” Gilroy added that the story of Star Wars: Andor begins up to now forward of Rogue One that Cassian Andor isn’t anyplace near being “the one that would know the right way to — or be motivated to — reprogram an Imperial droid.” Appears like we’ll have a little bit of a wait till Ok-2SO enters the scene in Star Wars: Andor, however I can’t wait to see what the collection has in retailer for us.
We all know that Star Wars: Andor will encompass simply two seasons, however there’s an terrible lot of story to be advised over the course of these 24 episodes. The primary season will cowl one yr within the lifetime of Cassian Andor, with the second masking the subsequent 4 years. “Our final scene of the present, our twenty fourth episode, will stroll the viewers straight into Rogue One and straight into the primary scene of Rogue One,” Gilroy mentioned.
“Andor will discover a brand new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, specializing in Cassian Andor’s journey to find the distinction he could make,” reads the official synopsis. “The collection brings ahead the story of the burgeoning rebel in opposition to the Empire and the way folks and planets grew to become concerned. It’s an period stuffed with hazard, deception and intrigue the place Cassian will embark on the trail that’s destined to show him right into a insurgent hero.” The primary season of Star Wars: Andor will debut on Disney+ with three episodes on September 21, 2022.
