Rumor: Tarkin To Appear in Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Cassian Andor Series on Disney+


Yet another Star Wars rumor has appeared. This time the rumor is that Wilhuff Tarkin will appear on the upcoming Rogue One spin-off, Cassian Andor series.

The rumor comes from Kessel Run Transmissions on YouTube. This rumor actually isn’t  much of a surprise, and it makes a lot of sense, considering the series is about the years before Rogue One, when the rebellion was being formed. Tarkin would be a strong force in the Empire and would likely be involved in the fight against the young Rebellion.

The show synopsis for Cassian Andor is as follows:

“Follows the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor, which he originated in the 2016 film. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”

Given the show synopsis one can see that the rumor makes a lot of sense. We saw a CG Tarkin in the Rogue One film, played by Guy Henry, and one of the co-writers Tony Gilroy is the showrunner on the Cassian Andor series.

The new show will see the return of Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Alan Tudyk (K-2SO), Jimmy Smits (Bail Organa,) Genevieve O’Reilly (Mon Mothma,) and Alistair Petrie (General Draven) are all set to return for the series. There will of course be new characters as well.

I have to admit, this is one show I’m really looking forward to. I love the whole “spy thriller” idea behind it and Rogue One is the best Star Wars film Disney put out in my opinion.
