Jonathan Kasdan is currently promoting Disney+s Willow series, which concluded its first season this week. However, this isn’t the showrunner’s first time working with Lucasfilm. He co-wrote Solo: A Star Wars Story with his father, Lawrence Kasdan, who also wrote The Empire strikes back, Return of the Jediand The power awakens. Recently, the younger Kasdan was talking The AV Cluband shared praise for another Star Wars project: Andor.
“One of the challenges of those properties is always, well, so many of the things you’d like to do with those stories are done and gone,” Kasdan explains. “And we’ve seen, you know, every kind of environment in Star Wars. And then Andor came out. I think part of the genius of it Andor for me that’s Tony [Gilroy] made a discovery about it that wouldn’t have even occurred to me, which was that the undiscovered land of Star Wars had this maturity, and was the kind of maturity in storytelling that it had never seen before. And instead of trying to create a new, bigger action sequence or a planet that looked different from every other planet, he went for a refinement in story and emotion that no one here had ever attempted before. And that to me is why it’s the most important Star Wars piece to come out in a long time.”
How will Andor Season 2 leads to Rouge one?
Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy previously broke down how season 2 will lead straight into the opening scenes of Villain One.
“Well, it’ll be the same tone,” Gilroy said /Movie. “Hopefully it will be the same quality, the same attention to detail and all the other things that people have become accustomed to. But there are two things that are very distinctly different. One is that this is a show about [Cassian] become revolutionary. His commitment to the cause will not be so questionable for the next four years. That’s the second difference. We’re going to cover four years. Every time we do three episodes in the second half, we jump ahead a year. When we come back to the show for part two, it’s a year later. We do three episodes and then we jump a year. Then we’ll do three episodes, and then we’ll jump over that for a year. That last year will be the year we enter Villain [One]. We have some pretty interesting storytelling opportunities. I wonder if anyone else has ever done it before. We can’t think of an A [show] where someone did.”
