Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first Star Wars expanded-universe movie.
On November 8, 2018, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that it’s getting a spinoff show which will be aired on Disney+ (Disney Plus), Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
The new Star Wars TV series will follow the story of Rouge One’s rebel, Cassian Andor. It will be a spy thriller which is set before the events of the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie.
Diego Luna, who played the role of Cassian Andor in the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie, will play the role again for this new Star Wars series.
I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.
We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.
– Diego Luna
Aside from the Cassian Andor series, another Star Wars series will air on Disney+ (Disney Plus) titled “The Mandalorian” written by Jon Favreau.
Disney+ (Disney Plus) will be a serious competition of the current streaming giants: Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu. This could mean that “Rogue One” will not be on Netflix for long.
Also on the Disney+ (Disney Plus) roster are the following:
– “High Fidelity” series
– “The Mighty Ducks” series
– “Monsters, Inc.” series
– “The Lady and the Tramp” live-action remake
– “Loki” series
– “Scarlet Switch” series
– “Winter Soldier” series
– “Falcon” series
