    Default ‘Rogue One’ Prequel Series

    ‘Rogue One’ Prequel Series In Works For Disney’s Streaming Service, Now Named Disney+
    https://deadline.com/2018/11/rogue-o...us-1202498593/



    Disney announced fresh details of its family focused streaming service, including the new name — Disney+.

    Disney CEO Bob Iger teased some of the exclusive content coming to Disney+ during the company’s fourth quarter earnings call, including a live-action prequel series based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film’s original star Diego Luna will topline it as Cassian Andor.

    This marks the second Star Wars-based original series to be created for the streaming service. Director Jon Favreau is spearheading The Mandalorian, an origin story based on the warrior race from which bounty hunters Jango Fett and son Boba Fett sprung. Set after the fall of the Empire and the emergence of the First Order, it follows a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

    Lucasfilm will produce the series, which will go into production next year. It will follow the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor (Luna) during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One.

    “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” Luna told StarWars.com in a story tied to Iger’s announcement. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

    @IbiE is that a symbol for the antichrist? Has the apocalypse truly begun?

    The Mandalorian Cast Has Officially Been Announced

    It’s true. All of it.

    Basically every crazy casting rumor you heard about the first live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, was just made official by Lucasfilm—and we just learned so much more. Yes, Pedro Pascal is the lead in the show and yes he’ll be joined by Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, and Nick Nolte.

    But he’ll also be joined by Werner Herzog! Yes! That crazy rumor is true. Also joining the cast are Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, Supernatural’s Emily Swallow, and American Gods’ Omid Abtahi.

    “We’re having a great time working with this incredibly talented group and excited for everyone to see what we’re up to,” executive producer Jon Favreau said in the Lucasfilm release.

    Seriously though, what an insane group of people. We’ve got a former MMA fighter, Apollo Creed, a triple-Oscar nominated actor, an Oscar-nominated director not directing, Gus ****in’ Fring, and so much more.

    As previously reported, The Mandalorian is being written and executive produced by Jon Favreau and will debut on the upcoming Disney streaming service Disney+, “which is set to launch in the U.S. in late 2019.” Thanks for that nugget, Lucasfilm.

    Dave Filoni is directing the first episode, with others directed by Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi. Here’s the super duper short synopsis:

    After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic....
