Lucasfilm series on Disney Plus are highly anticipated by fans of Star Wars. Besides The Mandalorian – 91%, the company confirmed long ago the development of productions focused on characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Cassian Andor. We have very interesting news about this last character because, according to the portal IMDb, George Lucas will be in charge of writing the scripts for some chapters. It has been a while since the filmmaker was involved in a film project. Star Wars so deeply, fans of the franchise will be very pleased with the novelty. Read on for all the details.
Cassian Andor is one of the protagonists in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – 85%. Mexican actor Diego Luna gets into the skin of the unstoppable rebel, and together with Jyn Erso and a group of strong combat elements, they make their way to one of the world controlled by the Empire in order to obtain the plans of the Star of death. Galen Erso, Jyn’s father, was the one who designed the huge installation, however, its destructive nature made it place a weak point so that at some point it could be eliminated. The film was a complete success during its run in 2016, often considered the best film made by Lucafilm under Disney’s designs.
Although Cassian passed away during the final minutes of Rogue One, this does not mean that you cannot return to Star Wars. Death has never been an impediment in the saga when it comes to bringing back the characters that fans love, there we have the cases of Anakin Skywalker, Master Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Emperor Palpatine, whose return to the saga It was, to put it kindly, unnecessary. Cassian will return with new adventures for Disney Plus users and George Lucas will take it upon himself to make his adventures truly memorable. What awaits us thanks to the director’s pen?

In accordance with IMDb, Lucas will be in charge of writing two chapters of the series starring Cassian. This project will consist of twelve chapters and it is known that it will be a limited series, that is, with only one season. Although it does not have a release date yet, fans expect it to arrive on the Disney Plus platform sometime late in 2022. Considering that it will take place several years before the events seen in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope – 93%, perhaps Lucasfilm does not want to miss a minimum friction with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, as we remember that both will occur in similar temporalities.
The gigantic success of The Mandalorian – 90% caught the Disney overlords off guard during the show’s first season, but it was enough to inspire the studio to develop more projects for the small screen, including Cassian Andor. Whereas they previously put all their money and devotion into Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – 61% did not count on Din Djarrin and El Niño to carry the entire franchise on their shoulders, and that the ninth episode of the saga would become a failure, not commercially, but among critics and fans. Now the galaxy of Star Wars it will largely depend on what Lucasfilm produces for streaming.
And what about future movies of Star Wars? It seems that Lucasfilm still has nightmares about the sequel trilogy it released relatively recently. But he’s already promised that Taika Waititi will take over the next big-screen adventure, and maybe things will turn out very well for fans looking to get away from the story starring Rey and Finn. It is said that the new production for the cinema will arrive until 2025, but the truth is that there is no confirmed date. We will have to wait a long time.
