Diego Luna says ‘Star Wars’ prequel to Modern Day ‘can comment’
war of stars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. These are literally the first words of every film. Andor takes place before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Nevertheless, it should appeal to modern society, Andor says star Diego Luna.
Luna served on a board of the Television Critics Association Andor on August 3rd. He discussed how Andor speaks on current topics. New episodes of Andor Premieres Wednesdays on Disney+.
Cassian Andor is personally for Diego Luna
Luna played Cassian Andor in Villain One and reprises his role in the series. The prequel begins with Cassian looking for his sister. In episode 3, the rebels start recruiting him.
“I believe a story like this can allow us to comment and talk about what’s important to you,” Luna said. “It’s easy to say that this happened in a galaxy far, far away, so I can’t do my own reflection on where we’re going and what can be done. I love that this story is about normal people, you know? It’s about you and me It’s about us.”

Andor may show the internal espionage that led to the rebellion against the Galactic Empire. However, Luna is hoping fans will take a closer look at how it relates to them.
“There’s an opportunity for so many comments,” Luna said. “And Cassian is full of those comments from my point of view. Just because I have to tell Tony the truth [Gilroy] writes, I bring a lot of myself with me.”
‘Andor’ shows the cost of survival
Cassian took out two attackers in the series premiere. Flashbacks also reveal how his culture struggled to survive. Luna said the harsh conditions of Andor have parallels with modern cultures struggling to survive.

When you talk about people surviving, the verdict is different. So we will explain that. And we will also show you a community. It is what we can and are capable of doing in community when we understand that our strength is in our numbers. And that’s what this show is about. oh, you get to know all these characters.”
The show goes deeper than “Rogue One”
Luna said he thought about such things when he first played Cassian Villain One. However, it was a two-hour film. Andor is a 24-episode series that takes him deeper.
“It’s a complexity,” Luna said. “The complexity of a show like this and the story of that one Villain One started and what makes this job so interesting. In other words, one must not ignore the gray areas when speaking of a revolution. There are so many layers.”
It’s easy to see what Luna deduces. We look at the coverage of the war in Ukraine and there are refugees from many places. Perhaps the thought of her will tell the story of Andor more resonance.
