The new Disney+ ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ prequel series will put the focus on Diego Luna’s character Cassian Andor and now the actor is hinting that he might be digitally de-aged for the role. We know that Andor was fighting the Empire long before sacrificing himself during the events of the only feature film which we’ve seen him in and now we’ll be getting a sneak peek into what made his character so special for The Rebellion.
It isn’t clear where in the timeline that this will take place as Lucasfilm could put a focus on Andor’s early years before that character’s father died or put it closer to the events of ‘Rogue One’ with the ultimate goal to show the mission he was on just prior to the film.

He doesn’t explicitly say that he’ll be de-aged in the series but almost does so, and this suggests we’ll be seeing some of his earlier years as part of The Rebellion, possibly even when he is recruited into it. Thanks to Disney owning both Lucas Film and Marvel Studios, it isn’t a stretch to see how the two companies are sharing the technology which has been increasingly used by both franchises in recent years.
Sadly, there is no news if Alan Tudyk will be back to reprise his role as K-2SO which I’m sure everyone is hoping to see. I do hope that we’ll see some of the “terrible things” which the Rebellion has had to do in order to fight against The Empire to really gray the lines between the two sides.
We do know that with where this takes place in the timeline that the series won’t be able to have a crossover with ‘The Mandalorian‘ which takes place after the events of ‘Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.’
