Disney announces Star Wars 'Rogue One' live-action series


"Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me", Luna told StarWars.com in a story tied to Iger's announcement.

On Wednesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed during an investor relations conference call that the House of Mouse will be producing another live-action Star Wars TV series in addition to Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian for its streaming service, which will be called Disney+. These shows may have actors such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen reprising their big screen roles as Loki and the Scarlet Witch in programming that debuts on the streaming service.

Lucasfilm announced Thursday that it is developing a Rogue One prequel series, which will focus on Cassian Andor, Diego Luna's character from the 2016 film.

This marks the second Star Wars-based original series to be created for the streaming service. "I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey".

But in an interview with the BBC , the Prince of Wales was quick to play down any concerns that he would continue to do so as king , saying "I'm not that stupid".

The show is one of several ambitious series coming to Disney's Netflix challenger, which it has christened Disney+. A release date for the series has not yet been announced, but production will begin in 2019.

Per the official description, the still-untitled series will follow "the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One..." Disney Channel musical phenom, High School Musical, will be rebooted for the streaming service. The service also include such exclusive films as Noel, a Christmas movie about Santa's daughter played by Anna Kendrick, and Togo, a movie about the 1925 Nome Serum Run starring William DaFoe.

"We feel (that) will enable Hulu to compete more aggressively in the market", Iger said.
