According to The Direct, Ben Mendelsohn has been asked to reprise his role as Orson Krennic in “Star Wars: Andor”, a spinoff series of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.
As a member of the Empire who oversaw the construction of the first Death Star, there is no doubt that he could play a leading role in the plot.
However, it’s still unclear if the villain will be a recurring character in the attraction or if he’ll make an appearance.
If the information is confirmed, Mendelsohn will be the new member of “Rogue One” to return to the derivative.
Recently, a Twitter page dedicated to the news of the ‘Star Wars’ saga posted a behind-the-scenes image revealing the return of Duncan Pow, who played rebel Sergeant Ruescott Melshi in ‘Rogue One’.
For those who don’t remember, Melshi led an extraction team to save Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) from the clutches of the Empire, as she would be sent to a labor camp on the planet Wobani.
And he was one of the rebels killed in the Battle of Scarif, a planet affected by a Death Star explosion at the film’s climax.
Check out the image of Pow behind the scenes of the upcoming production:

Remember that the filming of “Star Wars: Andor” is in full swing in London, bringing Diego Luna back in his role of Cassian Andor.
The episodes are directed by Ben Caron, Susanna White, and Toby Haynes, who is also the attraction’s showrunner.
The 1st season of Andor will have 12 episodes, the premiere of which is scheduled for 2022.

The plot will follow the adventures of Cassian Andor during the early formative years of the Rebellion, before the events of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. The heart-stopping thriller will explore stories full of espionage and daring quests to restore hope to the galaxy beset by a relentless empire.
In addition to protagonist Diego Luna, the cast includes Genevieve O’Reilly, Adria Arjona (“Squad 6”), Denise Gough (“Guerrilla”), Stellan Skarsgård (“Chernobyl”) and Kyle Soller (“The Titan”). Ewan McGregor could also reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
O’Reilly will reprise her role as chief member of the Rebel Alliance Mon Mothma, a character she first played in “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” (2005) and later in “Rogue One” (2016).
So far, no details have been revealed on the characters of Gough, Arjona, Skarsgård and Soller.
