Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the news earlier today, where he shared that Disney will be creating a live-action Star Wars TV show focused on the beloved rebel spy, Cassian Andor. There will also new new episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, one of the most anticipated revivals for animated shows to date.
The app, which will launch in late 2019, will include existing and original programming for its five brands, including Pixar, National Geographic and Marvel.
Yes, Disney is about to make some new Star Wars content again.
The series will go into production next year. New shows and movies from those franchises will bring in millions of viewers even if they are awful!
Disney+ will first launch in the United States next year.
Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+.
Something to look forward to: We've known for a while that Disney's streaming service is arriving next year.
Since taking over the Star Wars brand from George Lucas, Disney's two shots at stand alone Star Wars stories were oppositely successful.
Along with its spiffy new moniker, it's also been announced that the service will get a second show based in the Star Wars universe, following Jon Favreau's series The Manadalorian, which is already in production.
In Rogue One, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. The next question is how Netflix, Hulu, and others respond to this.
It's all because of Disney's purchase of Fox, who owns the streaming service, according to Tech Vibes.
