Cassian Andor Is Getting His Own Star Wars Streaming Series

Cassian Andor Is Getting His Own Star Wars Streaming Series

Disney+ will feature a variety of Disney-owned content, from existing shows to exclusive original offerings such as a Thor spin-off centered around Loki, a new High School Musical film, and a prequel to Rogue One.

Disney has revealed that it's new streaming service for Disney-Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and other company content will be called Disney+.

As we learned in Rogue One, Cassian operated outside the official scope of the Rebel Alliance's military operations, running black ops missions, and operating in a world of skullduggery, intrigue, and murders most foul. Feige confirmed on Thursday that the Thor film series' Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki in one of the planned productions, while Avengers' Elizabeth Olsen will reportedly headline another focused on Scarlet Witch.

Diego Luna said: "Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me".

Luna said in a statement that the format would be a chance to "explore this character more deeply".

Further details of the forthcoming TV series have been pretty quiet, but that doesn't mean it's completely hush-hush.

A release date has not yet been announced for the new series, which is the second Star Wars series Disney has announced, after The Mandalorian from Jon Favreau.

The service will also be the exclusive home of Star Wars: The Clone Wars' seventh season. While I like this idea and will surely watch the show, can we get some Jedi and Sith in the next live-action series? Tell us what you think in the comment section below! This confirmation came as part of a broader announcement about Disney+, which is now officially the name of the company's upcoming streaming service. Given that film's high mortality rate, a sequel would have been a hard proposition.
