Cassian Andor Is Getting His Own Star Wars Streaming Series

Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role Star Wars TV series with Diego Luna as his Rogue One character in the works

The spy thriller series will explore tales of espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire. Well, as I've learned many a time in this line of work, never assume that any title is going to stick around (hell, Edge of Tomorrow proved that a movie's title could change even after its release), and Disney Play is no different.

Luna said in a statement that the format would be a chance to "explore this character more deeply".

Since taking over the Star Wars brand from George Lucas, Disney's two shots at stand alone Star Wars stories were oppositely successful.

Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger has revealed the service will be called Disney+ and is scheduled to launch in the United States in late 2019. Now, according to StarWars.com, this prequel movie is getting a prequel TV show, to air exclusively on Disney's upcoming streaming service. This was revealed by Disney CEO Bob Iger during an investor call today in which he also detailed how Disney+ won't just be a Netflix clone as Vulture TV reporter Josef Adalian reported.

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.

Given that film's ending, we can assume that the new Star Wars show will be a prequel series.

Swelling with its takeover of much of 21st Century Fox, Disney is fortifying itself with ammunition to battle deep-pocketed tech companies like Netflix, Apple and Amazon.

Most of you know I am a Star Wars junkie, but I truly do believe this show has a lot of potential to be both innovative and stay true to the Franchise.

For Marvel fans, a series featuring Loki, which will see Tom Hiddleston reprising the role, will no doubt be an appealing prospect. If you ingest all of the Star Wars there is to consume (TV, comics, novels, games, etc.) you see that the picture of the Rebels was more complicated and hard than you initially thought upon that first viewing of Star Wars as a kid. Outside of that, an exact release date hasn't been confirmed, nor has a monthly subscription cost.
