Diego Luna returns as “charismatic Rebel leader” Cassian Andor, who performed a central position within the plan to steal the Dying Star schematics in Rogue One earlier than his dying on the finish of the film.
Alan Tudyk, who performed his reprogrammed Imperial droid sidekick Ok-2SO, may also be returning. Like Andor, Ok-2SO was killed on the finish of Rogue One, cementing this sequence’ standing as a prequel.
It’s at present unknown who else will star within the sequence, although it’s definitely doable that Rogue One Insurgent Alliance actors Genevieve O’Reilly (who performed chief Mon Mothma), Alistair Petrie and Ben Daniels may very well be enticed again relying on the format of the drama.

Stephen Schiff is onboard as showrunner, whereas Tony Gilroy – who directed reshoots and rewrote massive components of Rogue One forward of its launch in 2016 – is about to direct a number of episodes and pen the pilot.
What’s the Rogue One prequel about?
LucasFilm are at present remaining tight-lipped about what to anticipate from the brand new prequel, solely describing it as “a new spy series inspired by Rogue One.”
With that in thoughts, we are able to most likely anticipate varied high-stakes missions for Cassian and Ok-2SO as they battle the great battle in opposition to the Empire, probably even exploring how the pair met (and Tudyk’s droid was reprogrammed) within the first place.
Luna, for his half, promised “10 hours or more to explore these characters and these relationships,” and joked that his background in telenovelas would result in some moments of excessive emotion between the 2 characters.
“Yes, we will have a telenovela moment,” he advised the gang (and Tudyk) at D23. “You can cry when I tell you, ‘Te extraño K-2.’”

Whereas no title has been introduced, Luna did trace title had been chosen.
“Do we have a title? Can we say the title?” he requested onstage at D23, earlier than being shut down by LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy, who advised him “not yet.”
In different phrases, we most likely don’t have too lengthy to attend till we discover out the title, and till then, we’ll simply use Alan Tudyk’s suggestion –K2Fast, K2Furious: A Cassian Andor story.
What occurred in Rogue One: A Star Wars story?
On this 2016 prequel movie, set shortly earlier than the occasions of authentic 1977 Star Wars film A New Hope, Andor and Ok-2SO group up with miscreant Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) for a covert mission, studying that her father Galen (Mads Mikkelsen) had designed a flaw into the Dying Star area station that the Rebels may use to blow it up (which Luke Skywalker did within the authentic Star Wars movie).
Selecting up different group members from occupied planet Jedha (most of which was later destroyed by the nascent Dying Star), the group ultimately discover themselves on an Imperial weapons growth station on the planet Scarif, the place Jyn, Cassian and Ok-2SO handle to steal the Dying Star plans and transmit them to the Insurgent fleet whereas their pals assault for a distraction.
Sadly, Ok-2SO and the opposite Rebels nearly all die in battle, whereas Jyn and Cassian find yourself perishing when the Dying Star destroys the Scarif base. Within the movie’s remaining moments, the plans are transferred to Princess Leia’s (Carrie Fisher) ship, tying the movie into A New Hope’s opening moments.
