Disney+ Developing New 'Star Wars' Live-Action Series with Diego Luna Reprising His 'Rogue One' Role

Disney CEO Bob Iger today announced that the company's forthcoming streaming service will officially be titled Disney+. Furthermore, he announced that the new service is developing a second live-action series set in the Star Wars universe - this time featuring Diego Luna reprising his role from 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The new drama will follow rebel spy Cassian Andor (Luna) during the early days of the Rebellion and ahead of the events of Rogue One.

A creative team was not announced today. However, it was noted that the show will begin production next year.

"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."
