Gilroy’s role in this show has excited all the fans, as he had directed a few reshoots on Rogue One and this had altered the course of the adventure.
“If you look at Rogue, all the difficulty with Rogue, all the confusion of it … and all the mess, and in the end when you get in there, it’s actually very, very simple to solve,” Gilroy had said.
“Because you sort of go, ‘This is a movie where, folks, just look. Everyone is going to die.’ So it’s a movie about sacrifice.”
The Cassian Andor series is set to begin shooting next year.
