People Are Losing Their Minds Over Diego Luna’s Accent In The New Stars Wars Movie
The official trailer for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” finally dropped. It is some straight up fire.
The two-minute trailer gave us a closer look at Captain Cassian Andor, a Rebel intelligence officer played by homeboy Diego Luna.
More importantly, the new trailer also featured Diego Luna’s natural accent instead of an American accent. This little detail did not go unnoticed by the Internet, and they’re loving every little bit of it.
I'm so happy Diego Luna got to keep his accent

Some even went so far as to thank Emperor Sheev Palpatine for this wonderful little treat.
Thank you Sheev for Diego Luna's natural accent.

Can you blame them? Luna’s accent is sexy AF that they actually bottle it in his native Mexico and sell it as an aphrodisiac.

It is truly divine.
Also, Diego Luna's spanish accent is too pure for this world.

It’s truly wonderful that people are loving that Diego Luna isn’t trying to hide where he’s from. Because when you make Latinxs visible in a galaxy far, far away, you make Latinxs visible here.
Diego Luna isn't hiding his Mexican accent in Rogue One ??
