    Holy cow, this is amazing news!! Diego Luna was one of the best parts of Rogue One. Come for The Mandalorian, stay for Cassian.

    Shame, no more interactions with Jyn, Bohdi, Chirrut and Baze. But looking forward to this

    Any reference to Secrets of the Empire -hell, even a direct follow up and that would probably send me over the edge!

    I suppose there's room to give a bit more Jeddha and Chirrut and Baze and Saw.

    Okay Disney I’ll subscribe to your streaming service. You got me.

    This is now the SW project I’m most interested in.

    And a flashback to Jyn and Saw. This series has potential

    Maybe they'll adapt the K2 comic.

    He was my favorite character in Rogue One so this is a instant watch for me.

    I do wonder if they'll deal with Cassian meeting K2. It seems like an obvious story for a series like this (there's surely no doubt Alan Tudyk will be back too, right?) but I wonder how/if that comic story will figure in. An adaption would be cool, but I don't really see them doing that rather than a more unique take on the idea. I feel like this is one of the places where the "one canon" approach might cause an issue; the comic story is fairly pedestrian, and written at a time when a series like this presumably wasn't in anyone's wildest dreams. Now that there's a chance to get a definitive Cassian-meets-K2 story... who knows.

    Anyway. This is super exciting. And a ton of potential. Young Leia for sure.

    Main thing I’m interested in is his Seppie backstory. And how that ties into restoring the republic, the Rebel goal.

    Also senators. That’d be nice too.

    Cameos by Nest and Hera and Saw and perhaps even the Organas?

    And a spying mission to the Imperial Palace. Just because. Please?

    Oh and get Ian McDiarmid.

    This is amazing. I hope they take more inspiration from Dark Forces and turn Cassian completely into the new Kyle Katarn.

    All of this. Man, the potential for this is off the dang charts. Enfys is absolutely perfect for this.

    Meh. I’m not excited. Cassian along with the rest of Rogue One (aside from Jyn Erso) are boring one-dimensional characters. I’m excited for the Mandalorian tbh. A fresh face

    You found them one dimensional yet aren't excited by something that makes them more three dimensional?
