Disney and Marvel have now confirmed that Marvel Studios is developing a series based on fan-favorite character Loki.

A new Star Wars prequel series is on its way, this time for Walt Disney Co's planned Disney+ streaming service, Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger said on Thursday. "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.

Star Diego Luna will be returning to reprise his role as the rebel spy for the new series. This comes not long after production started on The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars TV series, also set to debut on Disney Plus next year. That series will be directed by Jon Favreau.

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.

The untitled series is described as a spy thriller that will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.

Luna addressed returning to the character of Cassian Andor in a statement to the site.

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.

I enjoyed Rogue One because it felt like they were taking a well-explored film genre and throwing a Star Wars skin over it, which is great.

Most of you know I am a Star Wars junkie, but I truly do believe this show has a lot of potential to be both innovative and stay true to the Franchise. While we've known for a while that the service would incorporate Disney's core brands, Iger revealed that the content will live on five hubs within the service: Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic.
