Star Wars Live-Action Cassian Andor Show Confirmed

Star Wars Live-Action Cassian Andor Show Confirmed

This will be the second Star Wars TV series on the Disney+ service following the announcement of Jon Favrou's The Mandalorian series last month.

The luxury resort, announced at D23 Expo 2017, will completely immerse guests into an authentic Star Wars story at Walt Disney Resort-and that immersion will start the moment guests arrive! But that's not all, as just the other week, we caught wind of a Bucky and Falcon team-up series for the platform, too. Disney chairman and CEO Bog Iger has confirmed that the streaming service will be called Disney+ and that it will launch in the USA in “late 2019”. One will be animated giving a final season to the Clone Wars and there will be two live action Star Wars shows. An exact release date has not been announced, but production is slated to begin next year.

Diego Luna will return to play the lead role.

Any type of expansion of the Star Wars universe is one worth noting - and this isn't even the first live-action spinoff series that the franchise is seeing go to the streaming service. So today I put together everything we know officially (and some things that have been reported to be true) about Disney's new streaming service. "We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply", said Luna.

So, what adventure (s) will we be going on with a pre-Death Star plan stealing Cassian Andor? Disney's successful acquisition of 21st Century Fox adds another expansive trove of movies and TV shows including channels like FX Networks, not to mention the company's own library of Disney Channel shows and its lineup of Pixar movies. I would expect whoever helms this show to do the same, which begs the question, Who is helming this show? Iger also likely wants to see Hulu known for more breakout original hits than the few it's had thus far, like The Handmaid's Tale. Which is great! I love the more complicated picture now as an adult, and Cassian's streaming stories will be able to flesh all that out. Much like the Rogue One movie attempted and (in my opinion) succeeded!

But most importantly of all, we're really hoping this means Luna will finally get to experience a highly-anticipated scene between Cassian and Jabba the Hutt.
