The new series will see Diego Luna reprise his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One, which will focus on the character's early years. As of right now there is no word on if the recently cancelled Netflix MCU shows Iron Fist or Luke cage will be joining the Disney+ lineup, but I'm sure keeping my fingers crossed.

The new service will feature all your Disney and Pixar favorites along with everything from the Star Wars franchise and the Marvel universe.

Disney is set to launch its streaming service, Disney+, sometime late next year.

Yesterday evening, the company Disney has announced a huge news to the fans.

Characters of Star Wars take part in an event held for the release of the film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in Disneyland Paris in Marne-la-Vallee, France, December 17, 2015.

However, she later tweeted , "F-k!" "I just had to evacuate my home from the fires", the actress posted on Twitter . Among the houses reported to have been devoured by the flames is Caitlyn Jenner's mansion in Malibu hills.

After years of rumors, Disney's CEO Rob Iger told investors that Disney would launch its streaming subscription service in late 2019.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated is Jon Favreau's upcoming live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, which according to Iger, isn't the only live action Star Wars series in development at Disney+. The real key for the company will be creating more original content for the service. What is somewhat surprising is that a character like Cassian Andor, above all others in the vast galaxy of characters in the Lucasfilm canon, is getting his own show.

Iger also announced during the webcast that Lucasfilm is now developing a second "Star Wars" live action series that will begin production next year before airing on Disney+.

However, Disney did announce that we can expect new stories set in the world's of Pixar's Monsters Inc. and High School Musical, making sure there's something for everyone in an attempt to rival Netflix. A release date for the series will be announced at a later date.

Variety reports Diego Luna will start filming the Rogue One spin-off after he finishes his work on the next season of Narcos. We'll be sure to keep you posted as more details on the project are made available.
