It looks like Disney+’s Obi-Wan series isn’t the only show that’s caught in a snag. As news has it, the upcoming Cassian Andor show starring Diego Luna has been forced to delay production.
According to The GWW, Andor was set to start shooting June of this year, but revisions in the script had forced the series to take a delay. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of script problems when it comes to this show as well. Rogue One’s backdoor director Tony Gilroy was said to have been brought in to make tweaks to Cassian’s story. We haven’t had any solid updates on Gilroy’s work yet, but if this delay is true, then it seems like this show is going to need more time.
Of course, we should just take this news as a rumor for now. If there was a delay though, I’m hopeful that we’ll get a start later in the year, rather than a complete pushback to 2021.
Ever since the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, it seems that trouble has been brewing behind the scenes at Lucasfilm. The Rise of Skywalker came out an absolute mess, and delays have been set for shows like Obi-Wan and Cassian Andor. If one thing is working though, it’s Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian. The show is currently undergoing production, with the second season set to debut this October.
We don’t have a release date for the Andor series yet, but hopefully it can come out on Disney+ next year.
