Things We Saw Today: Cassian Andor Alive and Well in New Set Pictures From the Disney+ Star Wars Series!

Diego Luna as Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Fans of Rogue One know what it felt like after watching that movie. You either said “oh that’s really good” or you fell head first into a love of these characters and a deep depression because they died. If not, I don’t know you. For me, I bought three different Cassian Andor figures and got a tattoo dedicated to a cut line from the trailer of this movie. I fell for Rogue One hard.

So now that we’re getting set pictures for the new series Andor, which brings back Diego Luna as the rebel spy Cassian, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of joy. Cassian, for the most part, was a mystery to us. He was a spy who was willing to kill Galen Erso because that’s the mission he was set on. Throughout the movie, his dedication to the mission shifted as his feelings for Jyn Erso grew but he was still trying his best to do what was good for the rebellion.

So how did Cassian Andor become that hardened spy we saw in Rogue One? That’s the mystery. How did he meet up with K-2SO? How did he end up working Mon Mothma and the rebel forces? Hopefully, we start to see some of that with Andor but right now, I just want to scream about happy, smiling, and breathing Cassian Andor. (Yes I know these are just pictures of Diego Luna in his costume but let me live.)

Andor, you will complete me.
