No cheating or deception, Skywalkers’ father is back on stage!

George Lucas made the first Star Wars 44 years ago, meaning we have known since IV. part, the New Hope, and it is no exaggeration to say that it has become a favorite of generations. This was followed by five more films, several computer games and animation series, and then the cold shower came in 2012: Lucas sold his empire, Lucasfilm, to Disney for four billion dollars. Although he initially tried to provide creative advice to the new owners, they quietly rejected it, and it’s no secret that their paths parted at this time and Lucas withdrew from the world of Star Wars. Since then, several films and series have been made that have received a very mixed reception from both fans and critics.

Peace seems to have been restored since then, as it has been confirmed that in the upcoming Cassian Andor series, the master himself will write 2 episodes!

Hip, hip, hooray or not hurray? It is known that in the early 2000s, when the prequel trilogy debuted, Lucas received quite a few negative reviews for them. However, since the so-called Disney era, earlier episodes have become much more appreciated and most fans have since cried back to the father of Star Wars movies.

So much so, in any case, that the 12-part Andor series takes place five years before the highly successful 2016 Rogue single-film, with Diego Luna (Cassian Andor) and Alan Tudyk (K-2SO) returning in the lead roles, and they are also joined by Stellan Skarsgård (Mamma mia), Adria Arjona (6 Underground) and Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter). And for the two parts, which Lucas directs, you will get a completely free hand.

The series will arrive on Disney + in 2022, and if the news is true, the Hungarian platform of the streaming service provider will be available in our small country by then!
