Diego Luna will star in a new Star Wars series for Disney’s upcoming streaming service. The performance will be a prequel to “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Luna will reproduce her role as rebel spy Cassian Andor, the furious fellow who helped Felicity Jones “Jyn Erso to steal the Death Star plans in the 2016 movie. Given the high mortality rate of the film, a sequel would have been a difficult proposal.

“Going back to the” Star Wars “universe is very special to me, says Luna in a statement.” I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I did during the trip. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us and this new exciting format gives us the chance to explore this character deeper. “

Visan is one of several ambitious series that comes to Disney’s Netflix challenger, as it has dubbed Disney +. As Variety first reported, Disney is developing a number of limited series that are centered on popular characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe (or MCU, as is widely known). These shows may have actors like Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, who reprint their big screen roles like Loki and Scarlet Witch in programming that debut on streaming service. The company has also knocked on Jon Favreau to write and execute another Star Wars television series titled “The Mandalorian”, centered on a “lone gunfighter” and his adventures in the outermost parts of the galaxy.

roll “Rogue One” will be developed at the beginning of the uprising and described as an “exciting spy thriller.” A release date for the series has not yet been published but production one starts in 2019. Disney expects to launch its new direct-to-consumer service since next year. The company believes that customers move deeper into the world of subscription stream and it has to be there to dust up their dollars. Even though companies such as Amazon and Netflix have begun, Disney hopes that its brand package, which includes not only Lucas movies but Pixar and Marvel, will also give it an advantage.

“In this era of earlier consumer choice, the brands mean more than ever,” said Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger on a profit call with investors when the “Star Wars” news broke on Thursday.

“We always thought that the brands and content were extremely competitive and to be enjoyed with Netflix, Amazon and anyone else on the market,” he added.

Luna credits include the very un-Disney erotic drama “Y Tu Mamá También”, “Milk” and “Flatliners”. He will soon appear in “About Beale Street Could Talk” and also stars in Woody Allen’s “Rainy Day in New York”, which Amazon would probably be happy to sell to Disney’s new streaming service … or any company that would have it . [19659002] Luna will start shooting “Rog ue En” spinoff after completing his work next season by Netflix “Narcos”.
