In addition to Diego Luna, the show created by Tony Gilroy also marks the return of Genevieve O’Reilly’s Mon Mo Henri. In an interview with Filmfare, the Andor stars talked about recreating their characters, rebellion and more.
When asked about going back to re-investigate what made Cassian Andor tick, Diego Luna, whom fans will remember from Dirty Dancing 2, looked back at Rogue One. He explains, “I wrote a behind-the-scenes story for myself. Every time you do a role and prepare for it, you create a little story so you know where they’re coming from – what they’re coming from. trigger this line or this action. Now we have to do it again but this time it’s a great partnership. I’m always aware of what I was thinking at the time and how tight these decisions are. tight or not and to be honest, it’s very clear right now. It’s so close to what we’re doing now that’s lovely. I have a very close connection with Andor and I like the way he thinks And I think I understand how he thinks. And I trust creator Tony Gilroy a lot. That’s why when he told me the story and what happened when Cassian was a kid.
We already know how Cassian’s story ends, and Luna believes that making a prequel comes with a unique set of challenges, but also opportunities. “It’s a very interesting process to see how far you can go back and how difficult you can make it for someone to get to the point where you meet him in Rogue One. And there’s a lot going on in this story. You won’t believe where he ends up, that’s the idea. We go as far as we can from the man we met in Rogue One. That is a big challenge. ”
He added, “You never start working on a program like that. You always think about how crazy the ending can be. But here it is different. It’s like how complicated we can get someone to get there if we already know where he ends up. We already know what he is capable of but the problem is how will he find out he has it. That is the real story. ”
Genevieve O’Reilly reflected on how the politics of Star Wars (and the real world) have changed over the years. Talking about the actual tone of the show, she said, “Well, I think Tony Gilroy, our writer and creator, is very interested in our world, in the stories in our world. us – politically what is happening in our world. I think he has written in the past in the espionage genre about the intricacies of our world. I think you’ll see that even though this is set on different planets and on a different galactic sphere. You will recognize a lot of political themes. They are profound people and I’m sure you’ll realize what we’re struggling with right now. From my point of view and from my character, how important is space for a diplomatic voice? How important is diplomacy and how important is it to lobby for solutions around uprisings or wars? I think certainly, over time, art and culture reflect our reality. We have this lens through which we see ourselves in our sci-fi art and storytelling and, of course, Andor is set in a Star Wars realm. ”
“But I think it’s deeply human and its theme is about the human condition and about how we navigate different cultures – different planets are metaphors for different people. , right? I think that’s how our evolving age is reflected in Andor, the Empire, and the Star Wars planets,” she added.
Andor Star Wars series is currently showing on OTT channel.
