Disney is dubbing its streaming service Disney+, the company announced on Thursday, adding that the service will include a Star Wars series when it launches late next year.

In Rogue One, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction.

Variety reporter Justin Kroll stated that Luna will have to fulfill his obligations on the Netflix series Narcos before he can begun filming on the new Star Wars show.

Iger also said Disney is developing a new series based around Marvel comic book villain Loki, starring British actor Tom Hiddleston.

StarWars.com relayed the big news this afternoon, revealing that Disney CEO Bob Iger announced a second Star Wars series specifically for Disney+.

Disney's family-friendly movies, now running on Netflix, will eventually switch over to Disney+, alongside its slate of original exclusive programs. The show will take place before the events of Rogue One and show what made Andor into the callous calculated operative that he was in the Star Wars prequel. While we've known for a while that the service would incorporate Disney's core brands, Iger revealed that the content will live on five hubs within the service: Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic.
