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

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed the official name, logo and new platform details today on the company earning call.

The Rogue One prequel series is the second live-action Star Wars show set to arrive on Disney+, joining Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian.

In a press note, Disney announced that the series will be developed for its streaming service, called Disney+. “Marvel Studios is developing a series based on Loki, the god of mischief, to star Tom Hiddleston.”. Both series will see the film actors return to reprise their roles. As of right now there is no word on if the recently cancelled Netflix MCU shows Iron Fist or Luke cage will be joining the Disney+ lineup, but I'm sure keeping my fingers crossed. When it launches in 2019, Disney+ will also be home to the Disney films hitting theaters next year, including "Dumbo", "Captain Marvel", and "Frozen 2".

Disney+ is scheduled to launch in the United States in January 2019, though no projected timeframe has been given for the service's arrival in other territories. Luna will star in the series, reprising the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He said that the new plan included investing in more original content in Hulu as well as expanding the service internationally. Disney launched a placeholder website for Disney+ that shows off logos of brands like Pixar, National Geographic and Marvel.

The "Rogue One" prequel is not the only "Star Wars" series coming to Disney+.

Disney+ will be the company's own video streaming service that will be the home for past movies as well as original shows and movies, including original Marvel and Star Wars series. But for fans of Star Wars especially, it looks like keeping up with the franchise is going to require a new subscription starting toward the end of 2019. Do you think it's a good idea or do you think there are too many streaming services already?
