Diego Luna Calls Upcoming Cassian Andor Series "A Dream Come True"

By: Benjamin Hart

Last week Star Wars fans were buzzing with excitement following the announcement that a new Rogue One prequel series starring Cassian Andor would be coming to Disney+. What really sweetened the deal was the news that Diego Luna, who portrayed Cassian in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, would be returning to reprise the role in this new series.

While everyone has been sharing their thoughts on the series, it seems past time to get some raw reactions from the actor himself. During an interview with Collider while promoting his newest project, Narcos: Mexico, in which he stars, Diego Luna was asked about his return to Star Wars and spoke briefly about the Cassian Andor series:

Collider: "When did you find out that you were going to do this show?"

Luna: "Very recently, that’s why I know very little. Very recently. I’m thrilled, I’m happy; it’s a dream come true to go back to that universe. I grew up watching those films and now I’m sharing that with my kids, so I’m very happy."

Collider: "Do you have any idea when you might be filming?"

Luna: "That I don’t know. I know as much as you know. That thing they sent to the press? I got that the day before."

You can watch the full interview below, or read it over on It includes a humorous bit in which Luna is asked about his apparent fascinating with Jabba The Hutt.

The series is described as a "rousing spy thriller" and is expected to go into production sometime next year.
