Marvel’s Loki to return in new Disney+ series

Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role

While confirming the rumors that a show based around everyone's favorite bad boy Loki were indeed true, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that a show based around Rogue One character Cassian Andor would start production next year.

Disney wants to move all of its properties - including Disney classics, Pixar movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Star Wars films - to its very own streaming platform.

'We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply'.

The show will be released on Disney's brand new streaming service, Disney+. We just know that it's en route, and for now that's good enough for us. This will mark the second live-action Star Wars series for Disney+, the upcoming streaming service.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated is Jon Favreau's upcoming live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, which according to Iger, isn't the only live action Star Wars series in development at Disney+.

Disney will own 60% of the streaming service after the Fox purchase, and Iger said that Disney would be interested in buying the remaining stakes from Comcast and AT&T if they were willing to sell.

There were big announcements from Disney this week as they revealed the name of their new streaming service.

Personally, I didn't really think Cassian Andor was a super memorable character from Rogue One, aside from his opening scene in which he straight-up murders an innocent man to preserve a key secret. A release date was not announced.

Diego Luna is heading back to Star Wars.

During the company's earnings call Thursday, CEO Bob Iger said that the Disney+ service would hit the U.S. in "late 2019." .

Disney+ has been in the works for years as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video have reshaped the digital entertainment landscape.

Disney has also yet to comment on technical details.

"We've aimed to actually grow the attendance to that park, which has lagged a bit over the last number of years, because we haven't invested anything that is even this close to size or scale or of compelling nature of it", Iger said during the call. Rogue One was directed by Gareth Edwards, with Tony Gilroy stepping in to help get the movie in shape during reshoots.
