Allegedly, two employees tested positive for Corona on the “Andor” set. Entire departments should now be in isolation.

On the set of the upcoming “Star Wars” series “Andor”, two crew members are said to have tested positive for the corona virus. At least that’s what the British newspaper “The Sun” reports. According to the report, entire departments are now in quarantine.

In addition to the two confirmed infections, other crew members are said to have complained about symptoms of the disease. A total of 24 people from two departments were isolated. According to an insider, they are now “afraid that it is only a matter of time” until the entire crew is infected. “The whole corona situation at this job” is “out of control,” reported another source. “It’s spreading and they can’t control it, but they don’t want to stop (production) either.” Some members of the serial production are afraid of endangering the lives of their families and friends.

“Andor” tells the story behind “Rogue One”

“Andor” is scheduled to start in 2022 with the Disney + streaming service. The twelve-part space opera series based on an idea by screenwriter Tony Gilroy (64) tells the prehistory of the 2016 cinema adventure “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. As in the movie, the main role of Cassian Andor is played by the Mexican actor Diego Luna (41). The Swede Stellan Skarsgård (70, “Mamma Mia!”) Will also be seen in another role.
