Stellan Skarsgard to sign on to Star Wars’ Cassian Andor series

Looks like another star from the MCU is set for the Star Wars universe.

Thor and Avengers star Stellan Skarsgard has joined the cast of the Cassian Andor series on Disney+ based on Diego Luna’s character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

He and Poldark star Kyle Soller are in final negotiations to sign on to join the universe far, far away.

There’s no word on who they will be playing in the series but so far all we know is the show will be written by Rogue One co-writer Tony Gilroy, who will also direct several episodes.

The series will star Luna as Andor along with FTN favourite Alan Tudyk returning as K-2SO. It will be a wartime spy adventure set in the Star Wars universe, which sounds good to me.

The series was set for 2021 on the streaming service, but with the madness due to that damned virus, that may not still be the case… but we can hope.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
