The series, which currently does not have a title, is set to focus Cassian Andor (Luna) and follow along on his adventures in the early days of the Rebellion.

As with most Star Wars projects, specific details surrounding the series are being kept firmly under wraps for the time being. That also means that there’s no word with regards to who Adria Arjona might be playing in the upcoming spinoff.

Behind the camera, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story co-writer, Tony Gilroy is attached to write the pilot for the upcoming Disney+ spinoff series. Gilroy will also serve as director for a handful of episodes on the series. Meanwhile, Stephen Schiff will serve as showrunner for the spinoff.

Currently, there’s no word with regards to when we can expect the Rogue One spinoff series to premiere via Disney+
