Star Wars Live-Action Cassian Andor Show Confirmed

Star Wars Live-Action Cassian Andor Show Confirmed

Disney's new video streaming service will go by the name Disney+.

It was previously rumoured shows on Marvel's Loki and Scarlet Witch were in the pipeline, with Disney Chairman Bob Iger officially announcing the former on Thursday during an earnings call with investors.

Disney has been developing a streaming service of its own for quite a while now, but we never knew what this Netflix alternative will be called or when it'll launch.

No word on who is attached to be the showrunner or even a planned release date but with the service not even launched yet, I'd expect this to come about in 2020 at the earliest. Tom Hiddleston will star as Loki, the God of Mischief in this new series, which is being developed by Marvel Studios.

One of those is a Star Wars product that will bring back one of Rogue One's most beloved characters.

The 38-year-old actor is set to begin working on the show when it heads into production in 2019, with the storyline focused on the Cassian Andor character amid the growing rebellion.

Diego Luna is returning to the Star Wars universe.

Over the past few months, Disney has teased quite an impressive slate for its new streaming service which includes a handful of original movies and television series. When Disney acquires Fox, it will become take a majority with 60% of the company, while Comcast will maintain their 30% stake and AT&T keeps their 10% stake. It will face competition from established services from Amazon and Netflix as well as other upcoming streaming services from WarnerMedia (née Time Warner) and Apple.

Disney+ will be home for all of Disney's movies and shows going forward.

The acquisition will give Disney a controlling stake in Hulu, allowing them to take steps to secure the licensing rights for its programs and offer some of its content to worldwide subscribers.

Iger also said that Disney would probably increase Hulu's pricing "in the near future". We will have to wait for those answers.
