‘Andor’ Is Going to Be Real Good!

This is not The Mandalorian. It doesn’t begin with an episode filled with action scenes. This show is about building storylines, introducing a bunch of characters, and letting these stories coalesce into something that will become a great television series.

Cassian Andor, in the first three episodes, is a man with a lot of problems. He kind of reminded me of Han Solo when we first met him in that regard.

Adria Arjona Will Star in the ‘Cassian Andor’ Prequel Series

Oh, snap! Things are starting to happen at the House of Mouse and the Cassian Andor Disney+ series will begin filming soon. It was supposed to start filming in June but…who knows if that has even happened yet. Its cast is starting to grow though and now a new name has been added to the list.

Adria Arjona who I’ve seen star in Triple Frontier and Pacific Rim: Uprising alongside Star Wars alums, Oscar Isaac, and John Boyega, will play the lead role alongside Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor in the series, becoming the first major Latina character in Star Wars. In fact, Latina characters in Star Wars are pretty much nonexistent which makes this casting choice so exciting.

Star Wars has become more diverse over the years and I’m happy to see the Cassian Andor series continuing that trend.

Now that we’re getting a chance to see the cast begin to grow I’m keeping an eye out for the rest of the casting choices in the coming weeks or months and that’s a very exciting prospect.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day. May the Force be with you.
