Disney announces Loki TV show on their new streaming service

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

Perhaps the series will also find itself entangled with other characters and events in the Star Wars universe, which wouldn't be at all surprising - after all, it's just one small part that's working to create the bigger picture formed by the main film series.

With that said, it adds a lot more pressure for Netflix to keep their viewers occupied with great content. Disney has huge fanbases with Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and more that they can tap into. Disney is regularly considered among the most valuable brands in the world ー why wouldn't they want the iconic name and logo to feature prominently in a new service?

"Rogue One" star Diego Luna will reprise his role as Rebel super spy Cassian Andor in a spy thriller for Disney's new streaming service. Lucasfilm is developing the series, which will go into production next year.

Luna said in a statement that the format would be a chance to "explore this character more deeply".

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.

According to CEO Bob Iger, the new service will include all of Disney's new releases starting from next year including the new Marvel Avengers movie, the sequel to Frozen and the live-action versions of Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King! As with The Mandalorian, it is being produced for Disney's upcoming streaming service Disney+.

Disney has released its earnings report for the quarter ended 29 September 2018, providing more information on its upcoming streaming platform.

As we saw in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disney seems hellbent on showing us the origins of familiar characters, so I'd also bet good money that Alan Tudyk will return at some point as K-2SO and we'll see how those two characters first met.

Hulu is expected to play a large part in Disney's plan to be an aggressive player in the direct-to-consumer TV market now dominated by Netflix and Amazon. Anaheim's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open at Disneyland Park in summer 2019, while Orlando's will open at Disney's Hollywood Studios in late fall of that same year.
