Diego Luna and Adria Arjona recorded the Spanish dub of their character
It’s a very cool thing when fans in other parts of the world can hear the main cast of a project, and that’s exactly what will happen with Disney+. Andor. The two stars of the series Diego Luna and Adria Arjona provided the Spanish dub for their characters in the star wars prequel series. Andor premieres later this week on Disney+ with its first three episodes.
Luna being from Mexico and Arjona from Puerto Rico, the two actors recorded their dialogue in Spanish. Luna made the announcement last week during the show’s panel at Disney’s D23 convention. Both actors beamed with pride onstage as they broke the news, with Luna in particular declaring her appreciation for the Latino fan base. The star said those fans were “with them through the process.”
Luna reprises her role from the 2016 prequel film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Andor is a prequel to this film, showing the character’s attraction to ambition and dedication to rebellion. Arjona plays a new character called Bix Caleen. Stellan Skarsgard, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Fiona Shawand Ebon Moss-Bachrach play supporting roles in the series. Genevieve O’Reilly and Whitaker Forest reprise their roles as Mon Mothma and Saw Gerrera from A thug respectively. Tony Gilroywho co-wrote A thugis the showrunner.
The first reactions to Andor praised the prequel series, calling it “complex and mature”. One of the main criticisms leveled at star wars Recent projects have been their lack of exploring parts of the galaxy far, far away without Jedis, lightsabers, and the dark side. Based on the reactions of critics, fans who had these negative feelings should be extremely pleased with the solid and concrete nature of Andor.
Andor is the fourth live action star wars show premiering on Disney+. The Mandalorian helped inaugurate the Mouse House streaming service, airing its first episode on the day the streamer launched. Boba Fett’s Book and Obi Wan Kenobi have since been created.
