Word previously spread like wildfire that a new series based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will be coming soon to a small screen near you with the daring tales of intergalactic super spy Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and the events prior to that explosively majestic sunset on the beaches of Scarif. Although the very idea of this series sounds amazing, a very real question begs, does this also mean that we will get to see more of Cassian’s android wingman, K-2SO? His wise-cracks were as big as his mech heart making K2 an instant fan favorite among the cherished droids of the SWU, so one would assume that these new adventures would not leave him out of the action. Actor Alan Tudyk, beloved by geek fans the world over, originally provided the voice talents that helped bring the gangly repurposed Imperial Droid to life. In a recent interview with Comicbook.com Tudyk provided a fairly cryptic verbal wink as to the possibility of his return to the role with the quote, “We talked about it.”
When Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released it did something astonishing that many Star Wars fans did not think was ever possible. It finally gave the fans an awesome prequel! Of course there are a few couch critics who will argue that this installment felt more like an uninvited guest into the saga. But for the majority of the fans who had nothin’ but love for the non-stop, adventurous side piece to Episode IV, R1 was welcomed into the family with open arms! Disney and Lucasfilm are hoping that this group hug will make room to include the new series set to air on the Disney + streaming service scheduled to launch Fall 2019, based on the harrowing prequel of events leading up to the most infamous of Death Star trench runs in the history of the Star Wars universe!
No word yet on an actual premiere date for the series and although his return has not been officially confirmed, there is reason to believe in a new hope that Rogue One fans haven’t seen the last of K-2SO. Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto!
