Disney to commence streaming shows next year

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

What is somewhat surprising is that a character like Cassian Andor, above all others in the vast galaxy of characters in the Lucasfilm canon, is getting his own show.

Disney first revealed plans for their streaming service back in 2017, when the company stated that it would become the exclusive home in the USA for on-demand viewing of numerous latest live-action and animated Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar films.

Along with its spiffy new moniker, it's also been announced that the service will get a second show based in the Star Wars universe, following Jon Favreau's series The Manadalorian, which is already in production.

Speaking about the new show, Diego Luna said: "Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me". I'm pretty sure most of us would pay up if Disney priced it within $80 to $120 a year.

We are really excited to see what's to come from this series, and it's a great start to a new era of stories about some of our favorite characters.

'Faulty mechanical equipment' to blame for active shooter reports at Topsail High
Our sister station WECT reports the Pender County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding an active shooter around 6:30 a.m. According to WWAY , the school district announced that all schools on the eastern side of Pender County are on lockdown.

Obviously, this is incredible news.

ET spoke with Luna at the Los Angeles premiere of Rogue One in 2016, where he didn't shut down the idea that he could be involved in future Star Wars projects.

Disney's 2019 releases will be included on Disney+ including Aladdin, starring Will Smith as the Genie, and The Lion King which stars Beyonce as Nala and Donald Glover as Simba. But look toward 2020 or 2021 on your calendars. Disney+ streaming serviceAmazon, Netflix et al will soon be joined by a true heavyweight competitor.

Are you excited for the upcoming Star Wars' show? The expected Netflix rival will launch in late 2019. This new sub chapter in the franchise's timeline will focus on Andor's early days working with the Rebellion, and will serve as a sort of companion prequel to Rogue One. Much like the Rogue One movie attempted and (in my opinion) succeeded!

When is the Star Wars Rogue One prequel out? Share your thoughts and glee with us in the comments!
