Diego Luna as Cassian Andor was, in my opinion, one of the best things about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He was one of the best characters in that Star Wars film and it was clearly a great surprise for me to see the recent announcement by Lucasfilm that he would be reprising his role as that character in a future Star Wars television series that takes place before the events of Rogue One.
This show will make its debut on Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service and, in an interview with Collider, Diego Luna was given the opportunity to discuss this Rogue One prequel TV show.

Jokingly, Diego Luna was asked whether he decided to do this show so he could have the chance to touch Jabba the Hutt:
“No, no, no. I guess my life will change the day I get to find out what the texture of Jabba’s skin [is like.] [laughs] One thing you say on one day in the middle of 150 interviews suddenly haunts you for the rest of your life. It’s incredible the amount of shit I get for that, I love it. I love it … but I still want to touch Jabba the Hutt.”
On a more serious note, Diego Luna did talk about when he found out that he was coming back as Cassian Andor for this show:
“Very recently, that’s why I know very little. Very recently. I’m thrilled, I’m happy; it’s a dream come true to go back to that universe. I grew up watching those films and now I’m sharing that with my kids, so I’m very happy.”
