Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller Join Cast for the Rogue One Spinoff on Disney+
Two more cast members have just been announced for the Disney+ spinoff of “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story” starring Diego Luna! According to a report in Variety, Stellan Skarsgård and Kyle Soller will be the newest members of the Star Wars universe.
Very little has been revealed about the project but we do know that it will be based around Diego Luna’s character Cassian Andor from the 2016 film. Luna has, of course, been confirmed for the project as has Alan Tudyk who played the K-2SO droid in Rogue One.
According to Variety, the series will be an intergalactic spy thriller that will take place near the beginning of the Rebel Alliance’s battle with the Galactic Empire. The action takes place before the events in the Rogue One film.
As of going to print, we aren’t sure what kind of characters Skarsgård and Soller (pictured above) will play or whether they’ll be permanent fixtures in the series or are just doing guest spots. However, we should note that the series won’t be either actor’s first time working with Disney. Skarsgård has appeared in several MCU films as Erik Selvig, astrophysicist and ally of Thor, while Soller voiced a character in the “101 Dalmatian Street” animated series
In addition to the casting announcements above, we do know that Stephen Schiff will serve as the showrunner and Tony Gillroy (co-writer on the Rogue One film) will write the pilot and serve as the primary director.
