With COVID-19 bringing everything to a halt, fans weren't expecting too much updates on any films. What's interesting though is that Disney+'s Star Wars series focused on Cassian Andor may have found another integral piece of the show.

As per Discussing Film, Emmy winner Luke Hull, who had worked on HBO's Chernobyl, has now been hired to be production designer or Disney's Andor series. Coincidentally, Hull has also worked as an art director for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword; Joby Harold, who wrote King Arthur was hired last week to write the Obi-Wan show.

Nabbing the production designer for Chernobyl is a huge win for the series. We don't know what Hull has in store for Andor yet, but I'm hopeful that he can add some more to the 'period' look of Star Wars.

Besides Hull, the show has already hired Stephen Schiff and Jared Bush to write and produce the show. Rogue One's "secret director" Tony Gilroy has also been brought in to help put the show back on track.

We don't know exactly what to expect from Andor, but it's going to serve as a prequel to Rogue One, giving us a look at Cassian's life when he becomes a member of the Rebellion. Seeing that Cassian claims he has ‘been in this fight since he was 6 years old', there's a lot of stories to unwrap with the character, and surely it will be more meaningful when we get to see him again in Rogue One.

For now, the pandemic has brought all productions to a halt, and we don't know how far along Andor is when it comes to pre-production. Hopefully, the series can start shooting early next year, then we can have a Star Wars show to look forward to, come 2022.

The next Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, is set to premiere sometime in October.
