‘We are going into Rogue One’: Andor Creator Tony Gilroy Confirms Season 2 Will Go Deep into Star Wars Movie Lore

Andor Creator Tony Gilroy Confirms Season 2

When it comes to the topic of Star Wars, the duration of the conversation can either finish in 30 seconds, or I can go in for 30 days. The world created by George and Anthony Lucas was more like an ever-expanding universe, with something new to be discovered the further you traveled into the galaxy far, far away. The sheer scale of unexplored stories and adventures in this universe is absolutely absurd, and that’s why fans are always hungry for more.

This craze of Star Wars rekindled in the new generation, Disney and Lucasfilm have created their own mini-universe of spin-offs and origin stories to keep fans satiated.

With the first season of Disney+’s Andor now coming to an end, the creator of the show Tony Gilroy has promised the fans another season of the critically acclaimed show, and this time, he has promised to dive deeper into the lore from the films!

Andor Season 2 Will Dive Deeper Into The Star Wars Lore!

Star Wars Andor became an instant hit with the fans of the original trilogy and the whole franchise in general, with its theme revolving around showing the deeper and darker parts of the Empire’s reign over the galaxy. From showing mature elements deeply rooted in a dictatorial environment that hits closer to reality, and high-stakes plot points that keep you on the edge of your sets, Andor did not shy away from showing all of it with accuracy down to the last, minute detail.

With all this, the pedestal of success where the show now sits was not a surprise to most of the fandom. With the first season of Andor now over, the second season has already been announced and has been confirmed to begin shooting in late November. Tony Gilroy, the praised creator of the series has said that the show will now dive even deeper into the backstories of the film series with the help of people like his brother Dan Gilroy and Beau Willimon, who are all set to write the second season of Andor. Gilroy said:

“{Willimon} really cool and really, really interesting, versatile, really good writer. But also a very, very, very big Star Wars fan, which we really wanted to make sure we had another pro because we’re going into Rogue [One].”

With a comment like this, Gilroy has just hyped up the second season even more. It seems like Andor will be going deeper into the story of Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor when they plan to perform a heist and steal the blueprints of the most destructive weapon of the Empire.

As Tony Gilroy has already revealed, the second season will tell the story of Cassian Andor in more grueling depth until they connect the series to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This means we will be able to witness all the events that happened between the first season that lead Cassian Andor to Jyn Erso, and how they successfully stole the blueprints of The Empire’s most devastating weapon, the Death Star.
