Production Pushed Back on Star Wars: Rogue One Prequel for Disney+


Just last week, Diego Luna confirmed filming would begin later this year on the new Star Wars Rogue One prequel. The actor said he would be reprising his role as Cassian Andor in the Disney+ series.

Now, it seems production has been pushed back following more script issues.  According to an article on, the series was set to begin filming in June, but that start date has been removed from the calendar and a new one has not been set.

The series was originally announced in November 2018 and has been repeatedly pushed back.  Currently, Rogue One screenwriter and reshoot director Tony Gilroy has stepped in to work on the project.

The show will follow Cassian’s adventures during the formative years of the Rebellion, before the events of Rogue One. Also joining Diego Luna is Rogue One’s Alan Tudyk who will return to reprise his role as the former Imperial enforcer droid K-2SO, who was reprogrammed to help the Rebel Alliance.

There is no release date for the series as of yet.  In the meantime, you can watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is available to stream now on Disney+.
