The series will tackle such subject matter as the rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became entangled in a danger-filled era, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film is set against a series of urban and rural backdrops, abandoning the desert planet settings traditionally used in older versions of the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Star Wars fans will be taken on an action-packed adventure as Cassian embarks on a journey that turns him into a “rebel hero,” the outlet noted.
Kathleen Kennedy, Tony Gilroy, Sanne Wohlenberg, Diego Luna and Michelle Rejwan are the executive producers for this project, with Tony Gilroy as the movie’s creator and showrunner, according to Hollywood Reporter.
