Diego Luna, who plays Andor in Star Wars, claims that after taking his initial steps with the resistance in season 1, the character would continue to change in season 2.
Diego Luna discussed his experience as Cassian Andor in season 1 in an interview with Collider, and he hinted at what to expect from season 2 of the character.
The actor hinted that the Disney+ series’ upcoming installment will feature a huge metamorphosis for his Star Wars character, saying he still has a long way to go before becoming the persona viewers first encountered in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
How Andor is Transforming Cassian into an Outstanding Star Wars Character
Many fans had their doubts when the Andor series was first announced, but now that season 1 has concluded, showrunner Tony Gilroy and his crew have shown Cassian Andor is deserving of his own series.
Although viewers had a very limited understanding of Cassian’s origins and how they shaped the way he was in the 2016 film, he was a good supporting character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Tale for a story about Jyn Erso.
The pilot witnessed Cassian shoot two corporate security personnel and flee, proving that he wasn’t a pre-packaged hero.
Without realizing it, he walked right into Lutheran Rael’s arms, who added him to the Aldhani robbery and placed him on the path to joining the Rebellion, even if he first didn’t believe it.
The 12-episode duration of Andor season 1 allowed the plot to evolve naturally without resorting to clumsy plot devices, earning Cassian’s character development by sowing the seeds of his destiny in practically every scene through exquisite language and profound ideas.
