Ben Mendelsohn Will Reprise His Role for ‘Andor’ Star Wars Disney+ Series. Plenty of familiar faces have already joined the cast of Andor, but now we know the iconic villain Director Orson Krennic will be featured in the series! Actor Ben Mendelsohn will reprise his role as Krennic for Andor.
This comes as no surprise given that Mendelsohn previously told Yahoo Movies UK he would happily return to the role, sharing: “Of course. Without any doubt, without any doubt. Krennic is a middle manager, which is a very unusual thing for a villain to be, but that’s what he is. I’m really proud of Rogue One because it feels like a dirty version of the original Star Wars film. By ‘dirty’ I mean, like you can feel the environment. And I’d be up for [another spinoff] just to wear that f***ing costume again!”
Currently, the cast includes returning Star Wars Alumni Diego Luna (Cassian Andor), Jimmy Smits (Bail Organa), Alistair Petrie (General Draven, Rogue One), Ben Mendelsohn (Orson Krennic), and Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi/Ben Kenobi). Rogue One‘s Andy Tudyk is set to reprise his role as K-2SO and Genevieve O’Reilly will return as Mon Mothma. New cast members for the series include Stellan Skarsgard (Thor), Denise Gough (The Good Traitor) and Kyle Soller (Fury). No details have been revealed about the new characters or position in the series.
The new Star Wars series “Follows the adventures of Rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Cassian Andor, which he originated in the 2016 film. The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.”
