Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”
So now we know the name of Disney's new streaming platform which is Disney+ and we know that there will be a second Star Wars LIVE action TV show! This means that there is Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Resistance, The Mandalorian and now the Cassian Andor TV show in production. This is in addition to Episode IX, a new Rian Johnson Trilogy and the Star Wars movies in production by the Game Of Thrones TV show creators. Wasn't there talk of a slow down?
