Ben Mendelsohn Joins Andor

The new Andor series is in production and we are constantly learning about new casts joining the production.  Last week we learned that Forest Whitaker would be returning and now we hear that Ben Mendelsohn is coming back as well.


Ben Mendelsohn, who played the role of Director Krennic in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will be reprising his character in the upcoming Andor prequel series. Since his initial appearance in Rogue One, Krennic has yet to appear on screen elsewhere, which will make this his second appearance in a Star Wars film or show.


This new series focuses in on Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) who we first saw in Rogue One.  This series takes place before the events of Rogue One. Actors new to the Star Wars universe that are confirmed to appear including Stellan Skarsgård, Fiona Shaw, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller in undisclosed roles.

Is there anyone else you would like to see join the cast?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
