I rewatched Rogue One today, and I loved it (as always!), and it got me really hyped for the upcoming Disney+ Cassian Andor series. Here’s what there is too look forward to:
1. Cassian’s Moral Complexity
• Cassian is willing to do whatever it takes to win, and we see this in Rogue One when he kills Tivik, an allied informer, and he references to having done other things in the past. This show is definitely going to give us another gritty rebellion story like Rogue One was.
2. “I have been in this fight since I was six years old!”
Cassian mentions to Jyn that she isn’t the only one who lost everything. There have been rumours of a really young latino boy being cast in this show, which would most likely be young Cassian in flashbacks, so we’ll see the tragedy that happened to him and why he joins the rebellion and is so loyal to it and the cause.
3. Diego Luna Starring
Diego Luna played a character that isn’t as black-and-white as the Rebellion was made out to be in the original trilogy, and how he portrayed the hardened, complex, somewhat broken man who stands up for his beliefs and doesn’t put up others’ bulls**t, even when it makes him look like a jerk, was so convincing and thrilling to watch. His argument with Jyn in the U-Wing was the best example of this. “You aren’t the only one who lost everything.” “We don’t all have the luxury of choosing when and where we want to care about something.” “Suddenly the Rebellion is real for you.” Oof.
Honestly, come on. Who didn’t love K2?! Alex Tudyk will return to play the hilarious reprogrammed Imperial droid, and I am pumped. K2 is personally one of my favourite droids in the universe, and I’m hyped for more of his banter. “Where are you taking these prisoners?” -Stormtrooper
“These are prisoners?” -K2
“Yes, where are you taking them?”
“I am taking them... to imprison them... in... prison.” Let me know in the comments what you are most excited for in this series!
