We finally have the name and release date of Disney's Netflix rival

Posted November 11, 2018

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed the name of the service during a live audio call earlier this week, saying that Disney+ is scheduled to launch in the U.S. in late 2019.

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.

Diego Luna starred alongside Felicity Jones in new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. During Rogue One's publicity trail, Luna repeatedly expressed a deep desire to meet (and touch) Jabba the Hutt - will this new Disney+ series finally give him the chance? The service will have original programming and "unprecedented access" to library titles from the Disney brand itself, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

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.

Yesterday evening, the company Disney has announced a huge news to the fans. Hopefully, if it does well, which we are pretty sure it will, Disney and Marvel will continue to make more.

The upcoming show will focus on Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion, before the events of "Rogue One". Other new Disney films premiering exclusively on the series will also include a live-action "Lady and the Tramp" film.

Disney CEO, Bob Iger, also confirms that Marvel will be bringing the God of Mischief into the streaming service, as Loki will be receiving his very own series.

So, what adventure (s) will we be going on with a pre-Death Star plan stealing Cassian Andor?

To mark the occasion, the online service Disney provides to develop a bit more the universe of Star Wars. All of Disney's theatrically released movies, now streaming on Netflix, will instead move on to Disney+, starting with its 2019 slate. We'll be sure to keep you posted as more details on the project are made available.
