Unfortunately, there were few details shared beyond that basic premise. Let us know in the comments down below!

In a statement, Luna said: 'Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me.

When Disney+ drops late next year, will you be streaming? When Disney acquires Fox, it will become take a majority with 60% of the company, while Comcast will maintain their 30% stake and AT&T keeps their 10% stake.

Over the past few months, Disney has teased quite an impressive slate for its new streaming service which includes a handful of original movies and television series.

Disney announced Thursday development on another live-action Star Wars TV series, this one centered around Diego Luna's doomed Rogue One character Cassian Andor.

No date has been set for when the show will join Disney+.

This won't be the first time the actor has reprised this particular role.

As Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige recently mentioned, the limited series format will allow MS to focus on some of the films' supporting characters, whose stories may not fit well in a theatrical format.

What are your thoughts on this new series?

Disney's family-friendly movies, now running on Netflix, will eventually switch over to Disney+, alongside its slate of original exclusive programs. It is also unclear if the service will revive the recently cancelled Netflix series Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Before today, none of that had actually been confirmed though, but now, the Mouse House has made the official announcement. Series based on Monsters Inc. Disney Channel musical phenom, High School Musical, will be rebooted for the streaming service. Given how Rogue One ends, this TV series clearly won't be a sequel unless it's a highly metaphysical and ponderous meditation on the afterlife.
