K-2SO has quickly became a fan favorite after his appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Many fans were upset when he died, but now we just might be seeing K-2SO back in another Star Wars story.
Could K-2SO return?
It seems that every Star Wars movie has a droid or droids that we fall in love with. First, we got R2-D2 and C-3PO in the original Trilogy and the prequals. Then we got BB-8 in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. We even got them in the stand-alone films. Solo gave us L3-37. But, one of the most talked about droids in Star Wars now is K-2SO from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
We all know that K-2SO didn’t make it to the final credits in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But that does not mean we won’t see him again in a Star Wars series somewhere. With the announcement this past week of the Cassian Andor Disney+ live-action series we may see K-2SO sooner than we thought.
The sarcastic droid.
What a great opportunity to tell more of the backstory between K-2SO and Cassian. It seemed like many times throughout Rogue One, that Cassian’s mission would have failed if it wasn’t for K-2SO. K-2 would show up at the right time to save the day. They worked well together as a team. But this is not the main reason people want K-2 back. The fans want him back to see that I don’t care what you think attitude with no filter. I mean who would not want more of K-2SO’s dry, sarcastic sense of humor throughout the series.
K-2SO and Cassian Meet.
We do learn about their first meeting together in Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO #1 comic. We follow Cassian on a mission to obtain Imperial Security Protocols. There he runs into trouble and reprograms an imperial droid (k-2SO) and uses him to escape. After this reprogram, we see K-2 and Cassian start to form the relationship that they had in Rogue One. So, the question is where will this live-action series fall in the canon time line. Will we see part of this comic brought to life or will we start on a new chapter?
I know I’m ready for the return of K-2SO and too see how much of an impact he has with building the resistance. Where do you think this story will fall in the timeline?
