Tony Gilroy ‘Has No Interest’ In Star Wars When Hired To Rogue One

Despite Gilroy’s initial disinterest in the franchise, he was persuaded by Lucasfilm to return to “Andor” as the showrunner. Given that the show will run for two seasons, that makes it a significant undertaking compared to going back and rewriting. However, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker is genuinely interested in the current mission. “My knowledge of ‘Star Wars’ is quite specific [laughs]. I’m focusing on a stressful 5 year period. But I wouldn’t do this if it wasn’t something that really interested me,” he said. Additionally, Gilroy said the show’s goal is to attract a lot of fans that aren’t “War between the Stars.” why”, such as him, joins the fold.

“Our goals with the show were ambitious but simple. We wanted to blow away the hardcore people of ‘Star Wars.’ But we also wanted their husbands, neighbors, sisters – people in their lives who never understood why they liked ‘Star Wars.’ We’re totally for both.”

The cast also includes Stellan Skarsgard (“Chernobyl”), Denise Gough (“The Other Lamb”), and Kyle Soller (“Marrowbone”), as well as Genevieve O’Reilly, who returns as Mon Mo Hen.

“Andor” premieres September 21, 2022 on Disney+.
