If Tudyk reprises his roll as K2, I'd watch this

So it's a prequel of a prequel?

Yes, a tv series prequel of Rogue One.

I wouldn't think any of the other characters besides Andor would be in this series, given that none of them meet until the events of Rogue One.

EDIT: NM- I forgot that K2 and Andor were already working together in R1. :oops:

Although Rogue One was a pretty good movie, it was a movie that underwent significant reshoots. The scenes involving Saw Gerrera for instance seem to have been significantly cut. I wonder if any early storylines for Cassian Andor for Rogue One would be reused in this series. The movie definitely seemed to nod at a dark past and hard times for the early rebellion as part of Cassian's backstory. His storyline in Rogue One going from a guy who was willing to kill an informant and almost assassinated Jynn Erzo's father to a more sympathetic hero at the end didn't really work for me. I could see it working on paper, but the scenes themselves didn't work IMO. Perhaps delving more into his past in this show can help make the character even more interesting.

In any case, I like the idea of seeing more stories in this proto-Rebellion era.

I do wonder about the tone for this series. On the one hand, grim and gritty seems like it would be appropriate; I think of the part in the movie when Andor describes his team as consisting of spies, saboteurs and assassins. On the other hand, too grim and gritty, to me, stopes feeling like Star Wars.

Very good point. Do we know any names that will be involved behind the scenes? If someone like Dave Filoni or John Favreau are involved, I will have no worries. I'd guess they would want to try to keep the atmosphere a bit similar to that of Rogue One? It is certainly one of the darker Star Wars movies, while at the same time very much a Star Wars movie IMO.

I have it in my head that some of the re-shoots for Rogue One were done to add some humor. Cassian Andor seems pretty humorless at the start of the film (really, throughout the film), but if they can bring back Alan Tudyk as K2S-0, they'll be good to go.

Boy, I dunno. I wasn't crazy about R1 in the first place and this character did zilch for me. I did like the YA prequel book about Donnie Yen's character and sidekick, a series set on Jeddah as it was invaded by the Empire and then descended into rebellion would have been great.

I turned off the Resistance cartoon halfway through the first episode, so I think once Disney walls off in their own streaming service I'll be checking out in the future. Maybe Jon Favreau will bring me back with his show, depending on what he does with Mandalorians.
