Disney+ has added Stellan Skarsgard (Chernobyl) and Kyle Soller (101 Dalmation Street) to it’s Rogue One spinoff.

Tony Gilroy, the co-writer of Rogue One, will write the pilot and he’ll helm several episodes of the series with showrunner Stephen Schiff.

The series is still untitled, and it will follow Cassian Andor during the early days of the Rebellion’s battle with the Empire. Diego Luna is set to reprise his role as Andor and Alan Tudyk will reprise his role as deadpan droid K-2SO.

The series was announced last year and was described by Diseny+ as a “spy thriller.” The platform indicated that the show would debut in 2021, but with the coronavirus, production has been halted.

Disney+ has had huge success with the Star Wars series; The Mandalorian is set for a second season and there will be a new series that will focus on a young Obi Wan-Kenobi with Ewan McGregor reprising his role.
