Rogue One Series Has A Filming Date

Production Weekly, a website that tracks film and television production information and schedules, has posted on Twitter that the series will beginning production in October of 2019. Obviously this means the live-action series will not debut with other new shows such as The Mandalorian when Disney+ launches at the end of next year.

If they shoot things expeditiously, perhaps we could see something as early as summer 2020, fingers crossed.

‘Black Mirror’s Toby Haynes To Direct ‘Rogue One’ Spin-Off Series At Disney+ As Tony Gilroy Steps Aside As Director

As Disney+ prepares to start production on its new Rogue One spinoff series, it will be doing so with a new director as sources tell Deadline Toby Haynes will helm the first three episodes, replacing Tony Gilroy.

Sources say Gilroy dropped off as director for COVID-19-related travel reasons. Gilroy lives in New York and had to make a decision quickly on whether he would head over to the UK for the shoot; in the end, he thought it would be best that he stay in New York and have Haynes take over his directing duties.

Haynes already was high on the list of directors who would helm future episodes and since he also already was in the UK, all parties thought this would make the most sense. Gilroy will stay very much involved with the series as exec producer and showrunner.
