Disney+ Casts Adria Arjona In ‘Rogue One’ Prequel
Disney+ recently cast Adria Arjona to star in the upcoming, untitled Rogue One prequel. She will act opposite existing Rogue One actors Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk. Details on Arjona’s role will remain under wraps.
Arjona is known for her role in Netflix’s 6 Underground and also has an upcoming role in Jared Leto’s, Morbius, a comic book movie.
The series will focus on Rebel agent Andor prior to the Rogue One events in the early days of the Rebellion against the Empire. When plans for the show were first revealed, it was described as a “spy thriller.”
Filmmaker Tony Gilroy, who oversaw reshoots for the 2016 Rogue One movie, will write and do directing work for the series and The Americans’ Stephen Schiff will be the showrunner.
The Rogue One prequel is one of several projects Lucasfilm is working on for Disney+. Other projects include season two of Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian scheduled to launch in October and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor.
Rogue One earned over one billion dollars at the box office. It is considered a high watermark among the Disney Star Wars films thus far.
