Disney CEO sets sights on Hulu takeover, reveals SVOD plans

Rogue One A Star Wars Story

A release date for the series will be announced at a later date.

Disney also disclosed the company is developing a new series based on Marvel villain Loki, whose portrayal by Tom Hiddleston arguably made him one of the all-time fan-favourite characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.

Andor was an important character in Rogue One, playing one of the Rebel Alliance spies who helped transmit the plans for the Death Star before dying on the planet Scarif.

Are you excited for the upcoming Star Wars' show? There is no word yet on whether or not we'll see Alan Tudyk reprise his role as Cassian Andor's sardonic, perpetually grumpy sidekick, the reprogrammed imperial security droid K-2SO.

In my humble opinion, "Rogue One" was the best Star Wars since the original Star Wars, and today comes news that Disney will be revisiting characters from "Rogue One" on their soon to be launched streaming service.

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.

Red Star shock Liverpool with first Champions League win in 26 years
Liverpool still have Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain to play and must now do it the hard way to finish in the top two. The England forward should have scored with a half-volley from eight yards out with the score at 0-0.

Here's a surprising development: according to Disney CEO Robert Iger, Diego Luna's Cassian Andor - last seen being blasted to smithereens at the end of Gareth Edwards' Rogue One - is getting his very own spin-off TV series on Disney's forthcoming streaming service, Disney+.

Now we know the name of the service.

However, Disney did announce that we can expect new stories set in the world's of Pixar's Monsters Inc. and High School Musical, making sure there's something for everyone in an attempt to rival Netflix. This will mark the second live-action Star Wars series for Disney+, the upcoming streaming service. "Exclusive movies include "Noel", a Christmas movie about Santa's daughter played by Anna Kendrick, and "Togo", a movie about the 1925 Nome Serum Run starring William DaFoe".

Swelling with its takeover of much of 21st Century Fox, Disney is fortifying itself with ammunition to battle deep-pocketed tech companies like Netflix, Apple and Amazon.

The Fox acquisition brings Disney a roster of talented television and film executives who, together with their Disney counterparts, can create "a lot more" original programming for Hulu.
