Could new Star Wars Rogue One TV series be filming in a galaxy not so far away?

Filming has already been underway at London’s Pinewood Studios and is expected to run into the summer.

The 12-part live-action prequel series telling the story of the rebel spy Cassian Andor was confirmed by Disney CEO Bob Iger late last year, with Mexican actor Diego Luna set to reprise his role as Andor.

It is currently scheduled to air on the Disney + streaming channel in 2022.
