Disney plans new Star Wars prequel series

The streaming service will come with two major shows, including a "Star Wars" spinoff show that will include Diego Luna playing Cassian Andor and take place before "Rogue One".

Both series will be released on Disney's upcoming proprietary streaming service, which is expected to be launched on 2019.

What worked so well about "Rogue One" is that it showed the dirty side of the Rebellion, something that many people who only watched the main Star Wars movies missed.

Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+.

The series is being described as a "rousing spy thriller" that will be "filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire". A release date for the series will be announced at a later date.

The crowds and the money are still pouring in at Disney theme parks in the United States. This was revealed by Disney CEO Bob Iger during an investor call today in which he also detailed how Disney+ won't just be a Netflix clone as Vulture TV reporter Josef Adalian reported.

Disney is wasting no time with announcing shows for their streaming service that is slated to launch next year.

Diego Luna starred alongside Felicity Jones in new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It's also a search operator, which means you can't use it when searching on Google or even within many Disney owned apps.

The company has yet to announce details regarding the global roll-out of Disney+.

Profit at Disney's movie studio more than doubled to £457 million ($596m) thanks to hits such as "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and 'Incredibles 2'. However, there's no word yet on a Scarlet Witch series that was also.

Disney will give investors a first look at the Disney+ app and its programming at a conference in April.

Swelling with its takeover of much of 21st Century Fox, Disney is fortifying itself with ammunition to battle deep-pocketed tech companies like Netflix, Apple and Amazon.
