Lucasfilm is having a bit of a renaissance with their Star Wars projects on Disney+ and they don’t plan on stopping. After the release of The Mandalorian you would think they can’t outdo themselves, but with their latest series they have Andor. Andor brings back Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) in the prequel showing how the spy joined the rebels. The series has been hailed as one of the best on the Disney+ streaming service, and with good reason. Lucasfilm also released an Obi-Wan Kenobi series that didn’t get as much praise as Andor, but it looks like they’re both getting the credit this awards season. Earlier today, Obi Wan Kenobi and Andor were both nominated for Producers Guild of America Awards. Andor was nominated for the Norman Felton Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic Television – Drama while Obi Wan Kenobi was nominated for the David L. Wolper Award for Outstanding Producer or Limited of Anthology Series Television.
Andor is the most recent Star Wars series on Disney+. Diego Luna returns as one of the most interesting characters in the Star Wars universe, Cassian Andor. In May, Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com got a chance to talk to him from Andorprotagonist at Star Wars Celebration, and he reveals that after seeing Andor you won’t believe it Rouge One: A Star Wars Story was possible.
“All I can say is you’re going to see where he was five years ago Villain Oneand you’re not going to believe it Villain One was possible,” Luna told us. “That’s the idea, to see a transformation and an awakening. I can’t tell you how that will show up, you’ll have to wait until August 31. But it’s about, and it’s about how much we can all change and transform, and that’s the beauty of storytelling. Not often do you start to know the ending, here you know what happens. It’s not about, like, ‘Oh, this happened!’ No, no, it’s about how it happened. It’s about the little details and what’s between the lines and each layer of the character. Even though we are in a very epic show and a huge spy adventure show, we will have time for intimacy. You go deep into the character and the people around him. It’s going to be interesting, I think, and it’s going to be dark and fun and different from what you see now.”
Andor and Obi Wan Kenobi now streaming exclusively on Disney+!
