Disney Announces Cassian Andor Star Wars Live-Action Series

Lucasfilm

Lucasfilm is now in development of a second live-action Star Wars Series for Disney +, the new direct to consumer streaming service of the company.

The new Star Wars series will follow the rebel spy during the early days of the rebellion ahead of the events in Rogue One.

- “Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+ that will go into production next year. It will feature content from Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar, so it will be the home for all of Marvel's superhero movies and Star Wars movies. The streaming service was previously said to be called Disney Play, but that was a bad title and Disney+ allows the company to follow in the footsteps of ESPN+, the sports subscription streaming service which Disney already owns.

With 2018 careening wildly to its conclusion at breakneck speed (seriously, where has the year gone?!), Disney is finally pulling back the curtain on their planned streaming service set to launch next year. The company has also tapped Jon Favreau to write and executive produce another "Star Wars" TV series titled "The Mandalorian", which centers on a "lone gunfighter" and his adventures in the far reaches of the galaxy.

The service will be called Disney+ and launch in late 2019, CEO Bob Iger announced on the company's fourth quarter earnings call.

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 series was being made for Disney+ with a release date yet to be determined, the company said in a release. Iger said Disney is aiming to win new subscribers by investing in more original programming and taking Hulu into new global markets.

Most of you know I am a Star Wars junkie, but I truly do believe this show has a lot of potential to be both innovative and stay true to the Franchise. The show will be a prequel to "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".

Luna, who will next be seen in Netflix's Narcos: Mexico, has signed on to reprise the role of Andor. Yes, that means there's more MCU material for you to watch, but this time it is actually a good - potentially great - thing.
