Tom Hiddleston Teases More Loki Stories to Tell in Marvel TV Series

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

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

The Rogue One prequel is the second Star Wars series planned for the service, with Disney also creating The Mandalorian, based on the race of Jedi-fighting warriors best known via Boba Fett.

Talking about the project, which has yet to be given a release date, the actor, 38, said: 'Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. So today I put together everything we know officially (and some things that have been reported to be true) about Disney's new streaming service.

In his own statement, Luna said that a TV series format would allow him to "explore this character more deeply". But that's not all, as just the other week, we caught wind of a Bucky and Falcon team-up series for the platform, too.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, the forthcoming television series will be dropped on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+, and will follow Rogue One's Cassian Andor.

Cassian Andor will appear once more in the galaxy far, far away.

The Loki rumor was first reported weeks ago along with a developing series focused on Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch (which Disney notably did not confirm in its press release), but now it's official.

Speaking during Disney's Q3 Earnings Call this afternoon, CEO Bob Iger revealed that yes, a Loki TV series is coming to their new streaming service, which will be called Disney +.

Since taking over the Star Wars brand from George Lucas, Disney's two shots at stand alone Star Wars stories were oppositely successful.

Disney's streaming service is expected to launch late next year.

Star Wars is one of Hollywood's most profitable franchises.

It also brings up the question once again, and maybe Disney is testing the waters, which is why it has greenlit another TV series, are live-action TV series the future?

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. Much like the Rogue One movie attempted and (in my opinion) succeeded!

It will face competition from established services from Amazon and Netflix as well as other upcoming streaming services from WarnerMedia (née Time Warner) and Apple.
