  • Diego Luna cast in Star Wars' Rogue One prequel anthology

Disney's forthcoming streaming service will be home to not one, but two live-action Star Wars series.

As we learned in Rogue One, Cassian operated outside the official scope of the Rebel Alliance's military operations, running black ops missions, and operating in a world of skullduggery, intrigue, and murders most foul. Although, one of Marvel's Rogue One prequel comics offered its take on that fateful occasion.

Though some people have expressed concerns about quality suffering with these series like we've seen with so many of Marvel's other small screen efforts, it's also been confirmed that Kevin Feige will be taking a hands-on role in each project, as Marvel Studios is producing them for Disney.

The new series follows the adventures of the now famous rebel spy Cassian Andor, who we know as Captain Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from 2016. Diego Luna had this to say about the new series in a statement.

Disney announced earlier today a new Star Wars Live-Action Series for their streaming service. Into that milieu, audiences will discover a Mandalorian gunfighter operating on the Outer Rim, where the worries of the New Republic barely exist and violence still forms the rule of law.

"In this era of unprecedented consumer choice, brands matter more than ever", Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said on an earnings call with investors as the "Star Wars" news broke on Thursday.

The best part truly is the fact that Diego Luna returns to reprize his own role!

Deborah Chow (Marvel's Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) are some of the directors now working on Disney+ projects.

"We feel (that) will enable Hulu to compete more aggressively in the market", Iger said.
