Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) are getting some new friends—or foes, as the case may be.
Variety reports that Disney+’s upcoming Rogue One spin-off has added both Stellan Skarsgard (Thor, Dune) and Kyle Soller to its cast as characters whose identities have yet to be revealed. Given how so many Disney productions are currently on hold as a consequence of the ongoing covid-19 outbreak, there’s no telling just when we might be able to expect to learn more about what they’ll be bringing to the show.
But! The fact that the studio saw fit to make this announcement suggests that they might end up being characters worth getting excited about. The as-yet-untitled Cassian Andor show, which will be showrun by Stephen Schiff (The Americans) and feature the writing and directing talents of Tony Gilroy (Rogue One’s co-writer), was originally scheduled to premiere in 2021, though that of course may change.
