Alan Tudyk Breaks His Silence Regarding K-2SO's Return In The Disney+ 'Rogue One' Prequel Series

At Disney’s massive press conference to announce the features of its upcoming Disney+ streaming service, it was revealed that fan-favorite Alan Tudyk was returning to voice cantankerous droid K-2SO in the untitled ‘Rogue One’ prequel series starring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor.  The new show was described as a spy show set within the ‘Star Wars’ universe.  Luna will also serve as producer of the series.

Presumably, Tudyk’s deal has been in place for a while now, but he has maintained a code of silence until the official announcement.  Now, it seems he’s free to react and he took to Twitter to tease the upcoming series.

This is, of course, a reference to one of his iconic lines from ‘Rogue One’.

He then made a self-deprecating jab at the photo selected to accompany a report by the Hollywood Reporter.

Fans reacted with excitement, as would be expected.

A while back, he commented to that he was aware that a prequel series was in the works, although he didn’t go so far as to admit that he was a part of it.

“It’s a prequel, so it is a prequel. I love those guys, I do. I love those guys.  Diego Luna is one of my favorite people on the planet. I know what they’re doing, and it’s very exciting. We talked about it.”

Separately, Luna discussed returning to the Galaxy far, far away, and the role of Cassian Andor:

“Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me.  I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

There will be a bit of a wait, as the Andor series isn’t expected to arrive until the second year of Disney+’s existence.  In the meantime, Jon Favreau’s ‘The Mandalorian’ will be available when the service launches in November.

Are you excited to revisit Cassian Andor and K-2SO?

Disney+ will be $6.99 a month or $69 for a year.  It launches on November 12, 2019.  It was stated that Disney is considering a bundle plan to combine Disney+ with Hulu and ESPN+, but that looks to still be in the planning stages.
