One of the highlights from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the reprogrammed murder droid K-2SO, played by Alan Tudyk. However, it seems like the popular character won’t be appearing in the upcoming prequel series, Star Wars: Andor, as previously reported.
In an interview with Collider, Tudyk revealed that although he appeared at Disney’s D23 announcement of Andor in 2019, it is unlikely that he will appear in the first season of the Disney+ series.
“They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there,” Tudyk said. “I’m in all these announcements for the show, and I had suggested at D23 when we announced in the show, that it be called K2 Fast K2 Furious: The Cassian Andor Series and, um, that’s not happening, it’s called Andor!”
“I do know this: I have to be on stilts for it, because the character is 7’1″, and I’m not one of those guys that says, ‘somebody else do the motion capture, and I’ll voice it later’. I’ll have to do the motion capture, and I turn 50 in March,” Tudyk continued. “So I hope they get to it soon, because I’m not going to be on stilts in, like, five years. I’m not doing it!”
