Diego Luna says 'Andorra' will challenge what you know about 'Rogue One'

Diego Luna well know you know how Cassian Andor’s story ends, but he is sure Andor, Disney+’s upcoming Star Wars franchise that will change how you look at87 characters in Rogue One : A Star Wars Story . The prequel series begins five years before the events of Rogue One as Cassian is searching for someone from his past, but he finds some troubles that escalate rapidly . According to Luna, the journey of young Cassian in Andor will reposition the future The Rebel Hero character in Rogue One .

“In fact, we’re going to challenge every thought you have, or every answer you come up with, about why or how things happened, and why this character did what he did,” Luna told The Hollywood Reporter . “Everyone who’s seen Rogue One thinks they have the answer. So we’re going to challenge that and we’re going to come to you and say, ‘No, listen Well, things aren’t what you think they are. They’re this way. This has to happen for someone to be someone you know.'”

Series creator/showrunner Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote Rogue One , already developed Andorra second season , it will shoot episodes in four three-episode blocks, each block representing a year of the story. Naturally, Luna is excited about this ambitious format.

“I think it’s perfect. It’s cute. It’s almost like four different movies [through four three-episode blocks],” Luna said. “There is also space between each block for the passage of time, so we can evolve and transform.”

In a recent conversation with THR , Luna also explains why it took him a while to re-found his footing as a character.

So can you tell me about your first day as Cassian?

The first day was so weird. It felt almost like a dream. When you have a perspective that you are living a dream, while also witnessing the moment from a distance and judging yourself, that’s what happened to me. I was there but not there. I talked for years, actually two or three years before we started shooting, but just being there, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve been dreaming about the [Rogue One] experience because it’s so unique, bizarre, fun, and unlike anything I’ve ever done before, so There’s a weird feeling behind it.

So it took me some time to adjust and realised I had to deliver. I work there; it’s not just a revival. This is the actual work I need to perform, but it takes time because a lot has happened to us in the years since. RogueOne has been a long time coming. So I start enjoying it on the third or fourth day. At first, it felt like the dress was either too big or too small. So I guess when you think too much about something and talk too much, it’s hard to digest when it actually happens, you have to execute and be fast.

also did it feel weird because you played his death years ago?

possible. I let the guy go. I mourn. I even have rituals to talk about him. (laughs.) And then I was there, being Cassian again. But I’m also coming out of my worst lockdown period during the pandemic. So it’s not just the weirdness of coming back because I’ve played someone I’m already dead, but also because I’m going through the most static state I’ve been in since I was a kid in months. I can’t move in the crib. (laughs.) So, the social interaction disappeared from our lives, and all of a sudden, I was back on set.

So it takes time, but at the same time it’s fun because I’m relearning a language and relearning to communicate‚Äč‚Äč. It was very fun and very unique, and unlike other jobs, being away from my house at such a difficult time was very stressful in many ways. But even if things seemed impossible, we found a way to shoot the series and make sure everyone was safe. So it’s a reminder to ourselves that what we do matters.

Tony Gilroy has said in the past that his superpower is not for life Star Wars fan because it made him make a bold choice on

Rogue One. I feel a lack of fear on Andor is also like this. Do you also feel that he is not afraid to say a new A Star Wars story?

I agree. Tony just wasn’t scared, period. (laughs.) Nothing to do with starWars or his work. I admire this man so much. He experiences freedom in a very rigorous way, which I like. It’s very interesting to have a voice like him in this story. You would never approach a story this way because you know what the ending is and the creative team doesn’t have to deliver an ending you didn’t expect. We don’t have to think about that.

In fact, we will challenge every thought you have, or every answer you come up with, why or how things happen and why this character does what he did. Why is he willing to sacrifice everything for the cause? What does he mean when he says “I’ve been in this fight since I was six”? What does he mean by “I did terrible things on behalf of the uprising”? So that’s what we’re going to challenge, because everyone who’s seen Rogue One thinks they have the answer. We’re going to challenge that, and we’re going to come to you and say, “No, listen, things aren’t what you think they are. They’re this way. This has to happen for someone to be someone you know.”

So Tony Gilroy must have the freedom to execute his writing, otherwise, there is no way to think Come up with a story you’ll care about. You need a strong voice like him and a sophisticated writer, and he is. So the energy, power and boldness of this story comes from Tony Gilroy and the creative minds behind the show. When you cast Tony Gilroy in the lead role, there are other voices that are very important to the show like [producer] Sanne Wohlenberg, [production designer] Luke Hull, [costume designer] Michael Wilkinson and [hair and makeup designer] Emma Scott. All these voices of us are willing to challenge every expectation this show can create, and I’m excited to be a part of this team.

and Rogue One , we were asked to be different. We are independent. We are a different Star Wars story with a beginning and an end. Now, we have a Star Wars series, which is again a separate series, with a beginning and an end. It means different. It was its own thing.

What do you think of Tony’s plans for season two, since every three episodes will represent a year of the story?

I think this is perfect. so cute. It’s almost like four different movies [through four three-episode blocks]. Three episodes would be a very strong block to explore year after year and then year after year. There is also space for the passage of time between each block, so we can evolve and transform. But I think that’s also part of the first season. How many episodes have you watched?

Top four.

Yeah, so when you see the third episode, you might say, ” I think I know the characters and the tone and what this series is about,” but then we take you to episode four. You’re like, “What!? Where are we going? What’s going on? What’s going on?” So I think that’s what this long format is giving us. It’s the flexibility to literally change and go elsewhere and meet other characters and find other planets and discover new things. It’s a fantastic format and very ambitious. This is complete freedom. You have space, you have space, you have time, and it’s lovely when you have something to say.
