Rebel fighter Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) is the intelligence officer in the Alliance who tries to keep Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s bounty hunters and rebels together. During the film’s panel at the ongoing Star Wars Celebration, Luna didn’t make Andor sound very well-liked, but he did say the character has one friend he can trust. That friend is K-2SO, a droid played by Alan Tudyk.

Below, learn more about the droid, whom Tudyk compares to “old people.”

rogue one behind the scenes

At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the thousands of fans who piled into Hall H for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel expected to see a new trailer for the most eagerly anticipated film of 2015. Instead, director J.J. Abrams revealed that they weren’t ready to unveil a new trailer…but they had something else. The video they played was key to energizing the narrative around The Force Awakens, a movie that was, at the time, surrounded by mixed buzz and engendering uneasy feelings amongst the most devoted fans. A look behind the scenes of the film proved to be just as powerful as a traditional preview, touching every nostalgic note while promising a move to the future.

Now, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is attempting a similar narrative at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in London. While just about everyone was expecting a new trailer for director Gareth Edwards‘ new movie to arrive with the film’s panel, Lucasfilm has instead released a video that takes us behind the curtain, offering tantalizing glimpses at the film’s set and the scale of this ambitious production.

Rey in the force awakens ending

I’m headed to London for Star Wars Celebration 2016, which runs from July 15th to July 17th 2016 at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre. Some big Star Wars announcements and reveals are expected to come out of the weekend, and we’ll be covering it live from the U.K. So stay tuned for our coverage beginning Friday and going throughout the weekend.

When Disney Animation Studios announced they were making a big announcement a couple weeks back, I listed a few possible predictions and was able to nail it exactly: Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced, pushing back Gigantic which still needs some work. And this weekend Finding Dory overtook Captain America: Civil War to become the highest grossing film of the summer so far, nailing my #1 spot prediction for this year’s Summer Movie Wager. So while I’m on a roll, I thought I’d try to guess what we might discover from Star Wars Celebration 2016.
