Diego Luna to reprise Rogue One role for Star Wars prequel series

It is set to begin production next year.

Personally, I didn't really think Cassian Andor was a super memorable character from Rogue One, aside from his opening scene in which he straight-up murders an innocent man to preserve a key secret.

Plans for the service come as traditional television and film studios strive to adapt to a trend of people turning to streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime to watch shows on-demand from internet-linked devices of their choice.

Announced by Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger during a live audio webcast of the company's yearly fiscal report and Q4 2018 financial results, the service's name has officially been revealed as Disney+.

Disney's streaming service is expected to launch late next year. The as-yet-unnamed Star Wars spin-off will star Diego Luna, who is reprising his role from Rogue One.

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool need title win for season to be a success
Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool can not think of goal difference as they will not underestimate Fulham. I can imagine how they feel in the moment. "I would really be an idiot", he said.

Iger said that the Disney+ app would "feature elegant navigation, personalisation and content" with the latter segmented by core brands Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, with National Geographic to be added in due course.

In his own statement, Luna said that a TV series format would allow him to "explore this character more deeply".

It will also "explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire". Outside of that, an exact release date hasn't been confirmed, nor has a monthly subscription cost. Marvel shows and movies will not be coming to Disney+.

The new Disney+ streaming service will launch with big names like High School Musical and Monsters Inc. This, of course, is in addition to The Mandalorian, the series Jon Favreau is making for the service.

Once the series starts shooting, a first-look promo is sure to be released. Perhaps the series will also bring back Cassian's droid, K-2S0, who was voiced by Alan Tudyk in the film. It's not too surprising to learn that Disney is going to make more Star Wars shows for the streaming service.
