Actor Alan Tudyk has talked to Diego Luna about the Rogue One Star Wars prequel series. Will those talks turn into something more for K-2SO?
Cassian Andor and K-2SO were a pair in Rogue One. The two were as formidable as any Star Wars sidekicks we have seen.
When Lucasfilm announced a Cassian Andor series would be coming to Disney+, naturally fans wondered if that meant the droid voiced by Alan Tudyk would be on the show.

But it looks like we’re weren’t the only ones curious about this. Tudyk spoke to ComicBook.com about the possibility of K-2SO being in the series, and he was especially vague. The key takeaway, however, is that it was discussed.
"“It’s a prequel, so it is a prequel. I love those guys, I do. I love those guys,” Tudyk shared with ComicBook.com. “Diego Luna is one of my favorite people on the planet. I know what they’re doing, and it’s very exciting. We talked about it.”"
It all depends on the timing of the series featuring Cassian Andor, who is played by Diego Luna. Eventually, Andor runs into K-2SO in what I’m presuming is a mission and whisks him away from the Empire.
There was really no indication how long the two had known each other in Rogue One, but it did seem they had been partnered for quite some time. Beyond there being a familiarty, K-2SO was also highly protective on Andor.
All in all, K-2SO would make a great addition to the series. Tudyk’s character stood out in Rogue One and had been a popular addition to the franchise. In a long line of popular droids, K-2SO earned his spot up there as well.
Given that the Star Wars series will be based on everything that happened before Rogue One – for obvious reasons – it’s always nice having something familiar even when venturing into the unknown.
There’s no timetable yet as to when the series will premiere on Disney+, though it’s likely for a 2020 debut, that means there is still time to do more than just talk.
What do you think? Would you like to see K-2SO appear in the Cassian Andor-led Star Wars series?
