At the presentation today, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy officially announced the Star Wars spinoff series that will star Diego Luna, reprising his role as Cassian Andor, as well as the voice of Alan Tudyk, who will be reprising his role as K-2SO, this comes via Deadline. They were both first seen in the 2016 film Rouge One: A Star Wars Story directed by Gareth Edwards.
Back in that film we found Cassian as a Rebel Alliance intelligence officer that was in search for the Death Star plans. He had reprogrammed K-2SO, as he was originally a security droid created by the Empire, and became allies with him. This will be a great addition to the Disney+ library as I always thought that there was more to explore in Cassian’s story. Tudyk is sure to bring in some good laughs as K-2SO. Currently he is the voice of Danger Boat on Amazon Prime’s The Tick, which just launched it’s second season, as well as Mr. Nobody on DC Universe’s Doom Patrol.

Disney+ will be launching November 12th.
