Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role

Disney expects to launch its new direct-to-consumer service late next year.

Other than Star Wars and Marvel, we will also be getting the previously revealed Monsters Inc. animated series and TV series adaptation of the classic Mighty Ducks family ice-hockey franchise from the 1990s spearheaded by the original writer and producer.

In a call with investors, Iger noted that the service will enable users to easily access content relating to each of its brands. He also said that Disney+ will feature navigational features "that typically don't exist" and that it will "super serve the most ardent fans of those five different brands by creating experiences and environments customized and personalized to those brands". New shows and movies from those franchises will bring in millions of viewers even if they are bad!

Iger said the service in some cases was attracting audiences 20 years younger than traditional TV and described the advertising opportunity as "underappreciated".

Disney CEO Bob Iger teased some of the exclusive content coming to Disney+ during the company's fourth quarter earnings call, including a live-action prequel series based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We've been keeping our eyes on The Mandelorian, which will be the first Star Wars series for Disney+, but today we learned a second series is in development. Also in production is a live-series centered on Loki, the god of mischief from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will star Tom Hiddleston. Luna said in a statement, "Going back to the "Star Wars" universe is very special for me". The most exciting part is that the actors who played those parts in the MCU movies are expected to return for the limited series.

Iger sought to differentiate Disney+ plus from Hulu, the streaming service it will gain a controlling 60% stake in with the completion of the Fox deal.

They are paid for by subscription, which means that people need to pay for them month-by-month or each year.

The streaming service, which is now only available in very few places across the globe, has plenty of original programming like The Handmaid's Tale, Into the Dark, Castle Rock and the upcoming Veronica Mars reboot. What are your thoughts on Disney+ and do you plan on subscribing? Do you think it's a good idea or do you think there are too many streaming services already? This time, it will be a prequel to "Rogue One".
