Diego Luna teases “familiar faces” on ‘Star Wars: Andor’ as shooting wraps

Diego Luna has offered some clues about what to expect from new series Star Wars: Andor.

The new Star Wars series, based on Rogue One character Cassian Andor and originally announced back in March 2020, has now completed filming according to Luna.

Speaking to Deadline in a new interview, the actor said fans will “definitely see familiar faces,” adding: “I can tell you about this project like no other because I can’t spoil the ending if you’ve seen [Stars Wars: Rogue One] already. No matter what I say, I can’t ruin the ending.”

Luna also said it had been “a blessing to do this job and to do it under these circumstances,” despite often having to work around coronavirus restrictions.

“I had the chance to work with a team that I couldn’t be more proud of and admire more. It’s a hardcore moment to be out there shooting, and we were really lucky. We’re done with the shooting now and getting it ready for audiences to see it.”

He continued: “While I can’t say much, what I can tell you is that the experience was literally a transformation for me. It’s something that I really wanted to do and that I thought I was not going to be able to do. I’m more than happy.”
