Disney+ Streaming Service Lands in 2019 With Marvel, Star Wars Series

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

Speaking during Disney's Q3 Earnings Call this afternoon, CEO Bob Iger revealed that yes, a Loki TV series is coming to their new streaming service, which will be called Disney +. He also returned to play Cassian Andor in the Star Wars: Secret of the Empire VR experience, which /Film's Jacob Hall talked about here. Luna will star in the series, reprising the role of rebel spy Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

"Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me", said Luna.

The direct-to-consumer service, which launches in late 2019, will feature original and library content across Disney's major entertainment brands: Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. Being that this is a prequel to the movie, I doubt Felicity Jones makes an appearance, but it's Star Wars, so you never know. The film's original star Diego Luna will topline it as Cassian Andor. The series will start production in 2019. With Ant-Man and the Wasp set to become the last Marvel title to be released on Netflix, the likes of Star Wars Episode IX, Avengers 4, and Captain Marvel will all be shown exclusively on Disney+.

Tyson Chandler Was Overwhelmed After Lakers Debut
The Lakers ended the clash with a +7 rebounding advantage, the first time they've done so since their third game of the season. The Lakers haven't had many resources to back up JaVale McGee at center, and Chandler will provide just that piece.

Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+. Original series on the service will include a live action Star Wars series called "The Mandalorian", a series based on the "High School Musical" movies and a series based on Pixar's "Monsters, Inc".

Before today, none of that had actually been confirmed though, but now, the Mouse House has made the official announcement.

The Disney Streaming Service has a name and to the surprise of nearly no one, it is Disney+, which follows the format of ESPN's streaming service, ESPN+. As Variety first reported, Disney is developing a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or the MCU, as it's commonly known). This means that Hulu will now be co-owned by Disney themselves, NBC Universal and Warner Media. So long as the series concludes with Luna's character learning about the Death Star and freeing Jyn (or at least with the events that transpire just before this), the plot has room to move in almost any direction.
