- According to Luna, Andor will reveal what Cassian is talking about in Villain One.
- Fans will learn a lot about Cassian’s past in the new war of stars rice.
Andor made its debut on Disney+, and the new one war of stars Show is examined more closely Rogue One Cassian Andor (Diego Luna). The series shows fans how the character came to join the Rebel Alliance and also expands on the things he said during the 2016 film. In fact, Diego Luna has confirmed that we’ll find out exactly how far his character went for the rebellion Andor continues. We’ll also get more insight into why he’s been fighting the Empire for so long.
Cassian Andor says he did “terrible things” in Rogue One
Those who have seen Villain One may recall Cassian Andor’s admission that he’s made great efforts for the rebellion — or done “terrible things,” as Diego Luna puts it.
That’s how the character describes himself, so it’s clear he feels guilty for what he did in his fight against the Empire. And at the time Villain One Cassian is a man willing to do almost anything to overthrow the tyrannical regime.
Of course we meet a completely different Cassian Andor‘s three-episode premiere. When approached about joining the Rebel Alliance, Cassian is reluctant to join Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård). And in Andor Episode 4, he’s adamant that life is far better than throwing his life away for a hopeless cause.
According to Luna, Andor will show how his character evolves from the man we meet on the Disney+ show to the one who teams up with Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). Villain One. We also get a first-hand look at what he did for the rebellion.

That’s right, during an appearance on the D23 Inside Disney Podcast, Diego Luna confirmed that Andor will reveal the “terrible things” Cassian did for the rebellion.
“He has another line where he says ‘I’ve done terrible things for the Rebellion’ when he’s trying to convince Jyn to go on this final mission together,” Luna recalled. “Well, we’ll find out exactly what he means by ‘terrible things for the rebellion.’ We’ll see.”
That’s an exciting prospect, and it points to it Andor grows darker and more serious as it continues on its course. That war of stars Show already feels more mature than projects like Obi Wan Kenobi and The Mandalorian. And Luna’s words promise that she will continue on this path, focusing on what Cassian is giving up to join the rebellion.
It will also shed light on why bringing down the Empire means so much to Cassian, from a young age.
The Disney+ series will answer many questions about Diego Luna’s character
Andor will show fans what Cassian does during his time in the Rebellion, but Diego Luna has promised it will answer other questions about the character as well.
During his chat with D23 Inside Disney hosts, the actor confirmed that the show will shed light on where Cassian is from. It will explain why he has an accent – a unique trait among the war of stars Characters we’ve met so far. It will also unravel another odd line out villain one, implying that Cassian’s vendetta against the Empire began at the young age of six.
“I don’t know if you remember, but in Villain One, the character says, ‘I’ve been in this fight since I was 6 years old,'” Luna said. “What does that mean? Why would someone fight at 6 years old? What is this reality they live in that forces them to miss their childhood?”
“I don’t understand how a six year old can be part of a fight,” Luna continued. “Well we’ll find out, what does that mean?”
That Andor Premiere worked its way through Cassian’s childhood. We saw a bit of his life on Kenari and learned that he had a sister and a clan before Maarva (Fiona Shaw) brought him to Ferrix. What happened to his people remains a mystery. However, Andor will likely provide answers. And they might explain why Cassian’s hatred of the Empire runs so deep.
New episodes of Andor Stream every Wednesday on Disney+.
