Star Wars for the next little while will be relegated to Disney+ as we’ll get The Mandalorian Season 2 sometime in the future (may or may not be ready for October) alongside Kenobi and Cassian Andor series.
While Kenobi’s production start was bumped to January, Lucasfilm had planned on shooting Andor with director Tony Gilroy (handled Rogue One reshoots) in the summer and it looks like they were aiming high with who they want as their production designer.
Today, it was revealed by DiscussingFilm that production designer Luke Hull is part of the production team. Hull’s credits include HBO’s Chernobyl and worked on the Game of Thrones pilot The Long Night aka Bloodmoon (didn’t get picked up to series by HBO).
HN Entertainment has been able to independently confirm the information thanks to Luke Hull’s reps.
Andor’s production was said to begin this summer, however, that might not end up happening if the coronavirus pandemic stalls summer productions. Hopefully, despite the delays, Hull remains on the project.
Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk are attached to reprise their roles from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Since the show was announced it was said to skew in the realm of a spy series, which would make sense as Andor is a rebellion spy potentially taking more a gritty tone, not unlike certain elements of The Mandalorian.
A release date for the series hadn’t been made official by Disney or Lucasfilm, but I have to assume they originally wanted it ready for the summer/fall of 2021.
