The last two Star Wars offerings (Solo and TLJ) have left me empty inside. But, I loved Luna's Cassian Andor and I'm actually very happy to see this. I think K2's humor was spot on, he stole the show IMO in Rogue One and I hope he's a significant part of this. He is proof that good comedy can exist in the Star Wars universe when done right, especially when the tone of the movie is darker. Please, please do this right.
I like Diego Luna. I also thought Cassian had the most potential as a character out of all the non-characters in Rogue One, so I’ve been interested since they announced the show way back before D+. Could be good—could go bad. I have a little more hope it could be good now that all the characters I don’t like are getting their own shows, so hopefully less likely to show up in this one, but they could just be doubling down and doing the same fan service schtick for all the new SW content.
Won't it rob the tension out of watching this knowing he will never die in the show? I mean the threat will be there but he'll likely come across invincible knowing he will survive the entire series only to die in Rogue One? I'll gladly skip this one.
