Before the first scene was filmed, the showrunners had to resolve the dilemma that the ending of the story had already been told, but one of the show’s writers saw it differently. Knowing that Cassian is dying on Scarif Beach as the Death Star peeks over the horizon doesn’t mean that the path that will lead Cassian to that fateful moment with the rebel Jyn Erso isn’t worth telling. “We had the advantage of knowing where this Rogue One story ends,” said show writer Beau Willimon. said in an interview with CNET.
Willimon believes that knowing the ending is an advantage in the storytelling process, but as he explains in an interview, it’s because he thought a lot about how he wanted to tell it: in that sense, but about character, emotional journeys, and how people develop over time, the question isn’t whether he dies at the end – we know he dies in Rogue One. did he become a man who is ready to die in Rogue One?
Telling Cassian’s story has been a labor of love for everyone involved in Andor, and she really shines on screen, but can she faithfully bring the character to the opening scene of Rogue One without upsetting fans?
