The highly anticipated series will include some familiar faces as well as newcomers to the Star Wars Universe Recently, it was shared Jimmy Smits (Bail Organa) and Alistair Petrie (General Draven, Rogue One) would be reprising their roles for the new Star Wars Disney+ series. Diego Luna is also set to reprise his role as Cassian Andor, as well as Andy Tudyk (K-2SO) and Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma).  New cast members for the series include Stellan Skarsgard (Thor), Denise Gough (The Good Traitor) and Kyle Soller (Fury). No details have been revealed about the new characters or position in the series.

“I’m just happy, I’m happy to be part of that universe,” shared Diego Luna. “Because I grew up watching those films and having the chance to explore the role in ten hours, or as many hours as we get, it’s gonna be great.”

“Follow the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”

The new series will stream exclusively on Disney+ and will likely premiere sometime in 2021 or early 2022. Which new Star Wars series are you the most excited for? What adventures do you think are in store for the rebel spy? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
