Diego Luna Talks More ‘Andor’, Mentions Length of First Three Episodes

Diego Luna recently appeared on The View to talk about Andor with Whoopi Goldberg and the other hosts. During the interview, he spoke about how long he’s been working on the show, the importance of diversity in Star Wars and roughly how long the first three episodes will be when they arrive on September 21st.  One of the most noteworthy bits of information of the interview comes right towards the end, as Diego Luna talks about the three episodes debuting at once, mentioning that the runtime all three together comprises nearly two hours: Well, the idea was to bring the most we could out at once, you know, and Disney Plus doesn’t do that often, you know?So, we’re gonna deliver three episodes on the 21st…which is great, because it’s a standalone. It’s a series that is its own, you know? We...

‘Andor’ Season One Writers and Directors Revealed by Disney

Disney has officially revealed the writers and directors of the first season of the upcoming Andor series, the Rogue One spin-off that will follow Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor in the five years prior to the Battle of Scarif. The first season, which airs later this year, will cover the first year of that period over its twelve episodes, while the second season, due to start filming in November, will cover the other four. Two years ago, when pre-production was ramping up, it was reported that Toby Haynes would be taking over directing duties for some of the episodes.

Haynes directed six episodes of the first season. A couple of months into fi...
