Not to say the two Disney+ exhibits already in improvement: the one about Obi-Wan Kenobi and the opposite about Cassian Andor.
While we actually solely know the place they fall within the Star Wars timeline, some “leaks” preserve popping up. And whereas there’s nonetheless a whole lot of the plot we don’t know, there are two acquainted characters that have to be part of the Cassian Andor’s sequence.
Cassian Andor’s sequence is reportedly about his previous and the way he obtained concerned with the Rebellion
If you’ve seen Rogue One, that the ending makes it unimaginable for a Cassian spin-off to occur afterward. So, rumor has it that it’ll particularly deal with how Cassian (performed by Diego Luna) turned part of the Rebel Alliance. Discussing Film beforehand reported as such. They additionally wrote that Lucasfilm is casting 9-year-old and 13-year-old model of Cassian and a 9-year-old model of his sister.
Now, a brand new rumor from the Twitter account @moredisneyplus appears to corroborate that report, too. “The sequence will comply with the adventures of Cassian throughout the childhood of the riot earlier than the occasions of Rogue One,” they wrote. “We’ll meet the people who influenced Cassian as a teen and as an adult, including his sister.” Based on that quote, his hardened Rebel exterior, and the casting name, one thing occurred to his household and sister that turns him right into a Rebel.
You’d have to point out Bail Organa when speaking in regards to the Cassian’s half within the Rebel Alliance
Cassian Andor’s journey to the place of Captain of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, which is what he’s if you meet him in Rogue One, is an extended one. He began as a baby soldier throughout the Clone Wars, in line with the Rogue One novel. He then went on to be a pilot and Intelligence officer for the Rebellion in numerous factions of the motion. This included being a Fulcrum recruitment agent. Fulcrum was the codename utilized by a number of within the Rebel Alliance and was usually in control of recruiting and coaching others for the trigger. They had been straight tied to Bail Organa, a central participant within the Rebel Alliance.
You would possibly keep in mind him from the prequels and Rogue One, portrayed by Jimmy Smits. He’s Princess Leia’s father and former Senator of Alderaan. Even after the Clone Wars, when the Republic is was the Empire by Palpatine, Bail Organa stays a Jedi sympathizer and is a co-founder for the Rebel Alliance. His devotion to the trigger is seen in Star Wars Rebels when he sends provides and within the Ahsoka novel when he units out to warn Jedi about particular assaults. You can see the beginnings of his operation in that e book, too. Since Cassian works carefully with them and nonetheless works with Bail in Rogue One, it solely is sensible to deliver him again.
And Ahsoka Tano must be talked about, not less than
The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano is insanely fashionable amongst Star Wars followers, although she’s solely ever been in animated kind. She is immensely essential to Star Wars as a complete and was a key participant within the Rebel Alliance. A 12 months after the occasions of Revenge of the Sith, Ahsoka was spurred again into combating towards the Empire. She got here throughout Bail Organa and joined his Rebellion efforts.
At the tip of her novel, she decides to take an precise place with the Alliance and creates the Fulcrum codename. She’s the primary operative with this title, organising the road of others to comply with. Even the image related to this code is her Togruta facial markings. To have Cassian’s story deal with his beginnings means Fulcrum has to be talked about. An Ahsoka live-action cameo or function would even be very welcome, too.
