Disney reveals name of streaming service to take on Netflix

Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role

The company says the drama is in the works for Disney's new streaming service and follows the adventures of the rebel spy during the formative years of the Rebellion.

'Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me, ' the Mexico City native said in a statement.

For fans of Disney history, the service will also feature Ink & Paint, a docu-series centered on the women who "made numerous Disney animated classics possible with little or no recognition for their work" as members of the studio's Ink & Paint department. Although, one of Marvel's Rogue One prequel comics offered its take on that fateful occasion.

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. The show does not yet have a release date.

Android apps will update while you're using them
The first is a full-screen experience, which blocks use of the app until the update downloads and installs. Android device makers, led by Samsung, are expected to start releasing foldable phones next year.

It would seem however that this slowdown doesn't apply to the small screen; we've recently had the launch of the new animated series Star Wars Resistance, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set for a revival, and Jon Favreau is now hard at work on the franchise's first live-action TV show The Mandalorian. Luna will reprise the role for the show.

This would be a boon for some people, who have had to resort to other methods in order to watch shows like The Handmaid's Tale andMarvel's Runaways. The reveal came today from Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger, who also said the service would become available in late 2019. The official Star Wars website has just announced that the Rebel Alliance spy will headline his own TV series for Disney+. Are you excited to see Diego Luna return as Cassian?

But most importantly of all, we're really hoping this means Luna will finally get to experience a highly-anticipated scene between Cassian and Jabba the Hutt.
