Disney Is Bringing A Loki TV Series To Its Streaming Service

While confirming the rumors that a show based around everyone's favorite bad boy Loki were indeed true, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that a show based around Rogue One character Cassian Andor would start production next year.

Walt Disney has revealed that its planned television streaming service is going to be called Disney+ and confirmed that it would be showing television shows spun off from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Additionally, the executive said that Lucasfilm will produce a second live action Star Wars series for Disney+. I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.

They are also including shows and movies created by other connected companies such as Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

Bigger picture: Rumors have existed that Disney will bring Marvel characters to its Disney+ service. The prequel will take place in the early years of the Rebellion.

"We aim to use the TV production capability of the combined companies (Disney and Fox) to fuel Hulu with a lot more original programming", Iger said.

A galaxy far, far away may be closer than you think and larger than you ever imagined thanks to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

The series, which we first heard word about just a few months ago, will find Tom Hiddleston returning to reprise his role as the god of mischief. Also, there's the fact the character's backstory went relatively unexplored in Rogue One, especially compared with his compatriot, Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso.

The news of this Cassian Andor spinoff series follows the already-announced show The Mandalorian, which is the Star Wars' live-action TV series that's coming from director Jon Favreau.

A release date for the series has not yet been announced. Diego Luna said in a statement released by Disney.

Disney+ is scheduled to launch in the United States in January 2019, though no projected timeframe has been given for the service's arrival in other territories. It's also a search operator, which means you can't use it when searching on Google or even within many Disney owned apps.
