Disney plans new Star Wars prequel series

Star Wars TV series with Diego Luna as his Rogue One character in the works

‘Rogue One’ Prequel Series In Works For Disney’s Streaming Service, Now Named Disney+

Joining Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian is another live-action spin-off series, this one a prequel to Rogue One that focuses on Rebel spy Cassian Andor, who will again be played by Diego Luna. Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed the service's name today during a live audio webcast of Disney's fiscal full year and fourth quarter 2018 financial results. Diego Luna will reprise his role as Cassian Andor in a now untitled Rogue One Prequel series to be produced for the upcoming Disney service, which has officially been named Disney Plus.

The site teases the powerhouse brands to be carried on the service, including Disney classics and beloved works from Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. I'm pretty sure most of us would pay up if Disney priced it within $80 to $120 a year. Luna said that he's looking forward to reprising the character, and that "this new exciting format will give us a chance to explore this character more deeply".

The launch of this streaming platform will also affect the offerings on other streaming services as Disney pulls its content from platforms like Netflix.

Disney has announced Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki for a new Marvel TV series, which will be released on the company's new streaming service titled Disney+.

A spokesman for Mr Nelson, Dan McLaughlin, said the lawsuits were politically motivated and "borne out of desperation". Murphy, who swapped his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat in 2011, served in the U.S.

Discounting recent news, Rogue One offered a promising start to Lucasfilm's planned slate of Star Wars anthology films in 2016. The film's original star Diego Luna will topline it as Cassian Andor.

The Walt Disney Company has officially revealed that their new streaming service will be called Disney+. This "Star Wars" series is just one of the numerous shows in development for Disney+. Outside of that, an exact release date hasn't been confirmed, nor has a monthly subscription cost. It will have the standard Disney fare on there, from animated movies to live action fare, and there will also be plenty of new, original content as well.

Disney have said that they hope the service will be on the market next year.
