There may only be one more season for “Andorto go, but it looks like that’s exactly what audiences are hoping for.
Diego Lunawho is currently filming the final season of the Disney+ series in London, spoke about the experience on Friday at Miami Film Festivalwhere he accepted the first Variety Virtuoso Award.
“It’s been bittersweet because every day I know I’m one day closer to the end,” Luna said. “It was really nice to approach a series knowing there is an end. It doesn’t happen! The new on-set conversation with streaming is people talking about the possible future. … Like, ‘Well, there could be a second season or a third season. This thing of leaving everything open, I think, brings anxiety to the actors who have to be dealt with. We all think about something that we cannot know.
Thankfully, that’s not the case for “Andor,” a prequel to the 2016 film, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
“The second season ends where ‘Rogue One’ begins. We’re not changing the ending of ‘Rogue One’, so that’s it. It’s a nice feeling, it’s like a long movie… It has a beginning and an end, we all know what’s going to happen,” he said. “There’s something interesting about the second season is that I have a different feeling every day that I go to the set. Now I know not only that the show was well received and people liked it, but I know why they liked it. This is another tool that we have these days thanks to social media. In fact, we listen to the public and the critics, and we understand what is related and what is not. It’s pretty cool to have the opportunity to go and run another season with this information. It’s kind of a season that will end up representing audiences in a different way. In a way, the audience is part of this season because the interaction we had served as inspiration.
Season 2 will be the end of the road for Cassian Andor and creator Tony Gilroy says that this is his latest “Star Wars” project. However, there could be a different role in the “Star Wars” universe in the future for Luna – perhaps as a director.
“You’ll have to ask someone who can actually give me this job, otherwise we’re just talking fantasy. It’s another galaxy, I don’t know how far away it is. I like to lead. I can tell you one thing, the next thing I do after that is directing,” he said. “When ‘Rogue One’ ended, my daughter was like, ‘Is that it? You’re dead!’ I was like, yeah that’s it…I make movies, it always has a beginning and an end.And then I kept on doing two seasons of a TV show, a prequel, so who knows! I don’t like to think too far ahead.
