Disney is Working On A Second Live-Action Star Wars Show

Star Wars: Diego Luna Will Star in a Rogue One Prequel Series

It would seem however that this slowdown doesn't apply to the small screen; we've recently had the launch of the new animated series Star Wars Resistance, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set for a revival, and Jon Favreau is now hard at work on the franchise's first live-action TV show The Mandalorian.

Disney+ will be the streaming home for Disney's various existing films and TV shows, which means much of that stuff will stop being available on services such as Netflix starting in 2019. A release date was not announced. As Variety first reported, Disney is developing a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or the MCU, as it's commonly known).

Disney's family-friendly movies, now running on Netflix, will eventually switch over to Disney+, alongside its slate of original exclusive programs.

Disney Chairman Bob Iger revealed the new series on the fourth quarter earnings call for investors. The show will focucs on the Rebellion during the years before 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'.

Discounting recent news, Rogue One offered a promising start to Lucasfilm's planned slate of Star Wars anthology films in 2016.

Google Brings an API to Let Developers Push In-App Updates
Google hasn't announced an official date that it will get wide release but said the API will be available to all developers soon. We've heard that you'd like more controls to ensure that users are running the latest and greatest version of your app.

The Cassian Andor series is in addition to The Mandalorian, director Jon Favreau's live-action Star Wars-universe series that's likewise coming to the streaming service.

Described as a "rousing spy thriller", the series will follow Andor's daring work against the Empire before his fortuitous meeting with Jyn Erso and the mission that led to A New Hope.

The direct-to-consumer service, which launches in late 2019, will feature original and library content across Disney's major entertainment brands: Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. We'll be sure to keep you posted as more details on the project are made available.

Luna said in a statement that the format would be a chance to "explore this character more deeply".
