Disney+ adds a show about Cassian Andor to its future lineup

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

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. 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".

That certainly bodes well for both the Loki show and all the others, and with reports saying that each one will have a sizable budget at its disposal, too, it seems as if the Mouse House is really going all-in on their new streaming service. The show will see Diego Luna reprise his role as Captain Cassian Andor, but younger, and not dead yet. Jon Favreau is now developing another Star Wars-based show, The Mandalorian - which, going by the title alone, sounds pretty cool. Potentially among those is Twentieth Century Fox's output deal with HBO, which is supposed to run until 2022 but includes movies Disney would like to be able to offer sooner on its own service.

The new Disney+ streaming service will launch with big names like High School Musical and Monsters Inc.

Disney's new streaming service will be called Disney+ and will be launched in late 2019, according to CEO Bob Iger on the company's earnings call last Thursday.

Check out the official announcement from The Star Wars Show below. The series does not yet have a release date, but production will begin in 2019. There are Star Wars shows in the works, as well as new Marvel projects, including a Loki TV series with Tom Hiddleston. And we will also see properties from Fox (which Disney acquired particular studios for the tune of $71.3 billion) as well. Are you more excited about this than the movies? "We're planning an investor conference in April to provide more insight into our DTC strategy including a first look at Disney+ along with some of the content we're creating for it", Iger said.

Iger also discussed Hulu, another streaming service available on Apple TV, saying it would feature more "general entertainment programming" while the more family-friendly fare would be on Disney+. Much like the Rogue One movie attempted and (in my opinion) succeeded!
