Adria Arjona Joins Diego Luna In ‘Rogue One’ Cassian Andor Series For Disney+
Hot off battling the forces of Heaven and Hell, ‘Good Omens’ star Adria Arjona is heading to a galaxy far far away to join Diego Luna in the upcoming ‘Rogue One’ series on Disney+ it has been revealed.
The currently untitled drama sees Luna reprise the role of Cassian Andor, and follows the adventures of the rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion. It will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.
Whilst it has been revealed Arjona has joined the cast of the show, Disney are refusing to comment on exactly who she will be playing. We do know that, alongside Luna, she will be joined by Alan Tudyk who reprises his role as K-2SO, the reprogrammed Imperial security droid who acts as Andor’s co-pilot and sidekick.
Along with playing Anathema Device in ‘Good Omens’, Adria Arjona is no stranger to sci-fi/fantasy genre shows and movies. She played Dorothy in NBC’s short-lived series ‘Emerald City’, Jules in ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’, and is next to appear in the “Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters” (seriously Sony… is that really the best name you could come up with!) movie ‘Morbius’ with Jared Leto and Matt Smith. She has also popped up in ‘True Detective’, ‘Narcos’ and ‘Person of Interest’.
Behind the camera, Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote the script for the original ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ movie, is set to pen the pilot for the tv show, along with directing some of the episodes. He also serves as showrunner for the series.
This ‘Rogue One’ series will be the third ‘Star Wars’ tv show to land on the Disney+ streaming service. The smash-hit series ‘The Mandalorian’ is due to return for a second season later this year, whilst season one picked up 15 Emmy nominations, including Best Drama, Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waititi, Guest Actor for Giancarlo Esposito, and a pile of technical nods. Fans are also eagerly awaiting the return of Ewan McGregor to the role of Obi Wan-Kenobi in a tv series set eight years after the events of ‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith’.
We don’t know exactly when the Cassian Andor/Rogue One series will begin filming, as like everything at the moment, the pandemic has everything up in the air. However, we will bring you more news as we get it.
