Diego Luna Reprising ‘Rogue One’ Character In New ‘Star Wars’ TV Series

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

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. We just know that it's en route, and for now that's good enough for us. Speaking on his return to the Star Wars universe: "I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey".

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

Luna, who will next be seen in Netflix's Narcos: Mexico, has signed on to reprise the role of Andor. So it wouldn't be surprising to hear Edwards is somehow involved. The major series now in development is Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian, which will be set after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi before the formation of the First Order. Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) is the chief creative force behind that series.

Employees WHIPPED and FORCED to drink URINE for missing sales targets
It's the latest in a string of cases of Chinese firms employing unusual measures to punish, shame or encourage their staff. Police took action after videos emerged showing workers being whipped with a belt and drinking a yellow liquid.

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger was on hand to unveil the official name for the company's upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service during a live audio webcast where Disney revealed its fiscal full year and fourth quarter 2018 financial results. He also returned to play Cassian Andor in the Star Wars: Secret of the Empire VR experience, which /Film's Jacob Hall talked about here. Rogue One was quite well-received and grossed a total of $1.05 billion at the box office.

Iger sought to differentiate Disney+ plus from Hulu, the streaming service it will gain a controlling 60% stake in with the completion of the Fox deal.

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. That being said, Iger did reveal that the company plans to launch Disney+ in the United States sometime in late 2019.
