Tarkin Rumored to Appear in the Cassian Andor Disney+ Series

The Cassian Andor series is expected to begin production sometime early next year, closely following the Obi-Wan Kenobi show, and now comes a rumor about one of the characters we will see in the series.

According to Kessel Run Transmissions, Tarkin will be appearing in the Cassian Andor Disney+ series. Right now it’s not known exactly how he’ll fit in, but obviously it’ll be the CG Tarkin like we saw in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

As Cassian is naturally going to be set before Rogue One (since both him and Tarkin are dead after that movie and A New Hope) this means we could see Tarkin beginning to oversee the Death Star project. We’ve had some canon Tarkin backstory in the Tarkin novel, one of the first novels in the new canon, as well as his appearances in Rebels; so they do have stuff to build off of for his appearance in the series.
