Andor showrunner mentioned why Okay-2SO isn’t featured within the upcoming Star Wars sequence.
The upcoming new Star Wars sequence Andor is about to inform the tales of its titular character portrayed by Diego Luna years earlier than the occasions of Rogue One. Some are a bit stunned to see that the droid Okay-2SO (Alan Tudyk) received’t be showing in Season 1 of this sequence, on condition that again in 2019, Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk stepped onstage collectively to debate the present at D23 Expo.
Nicely, showrunner Tony Gilroy defined why we received’t be seeing Okay-2SO in Andor Season 1, and what which may imply for this Star Wars present:
“From a storytelling standpoint, there are a number of causes. 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. Once 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 unhealthy variations we might have been compelled to do.”
It’s protected to say that the primary season of Andor seems to comply with the early years of the Insurgent Alliance, and on condition that Okay-2SO is an imperial droid, it’s probably that he wasn’t part of Cassian’s life till a bit of nearer to when the occasions of Rogue One happens.
