Diego Luna Knows as Little About the Cassian Andor Series as Fans Do


Diego Luna, star of the upcoming Star Wars solo series centering Cassian Andor, has revealed he has no clue when the prequel TV show will start filming.

When asked by Collider for a time frame on the start of production, Luna admitted, "That I don’t know. I know as much as you know. That thing they sent to the press? I got that the day before." He also confirmed that he's really In the dark, as he also found out about the series only recently.

How recently?

"Very recently, that’s why I know very little. Very recently," he confessed. "I’m thrilled, I’m happy; it’s a dream come true to go back to that universe. I grew up watching those films and now I’m sharing that with my kids, so I’m very happy."
