Mouse House Dubs Streaming Platform Disney+

Diego Luna starred alongside Felicity Jones in new Rogue One A Star Wars Story.                  Lucasfilm

Along with its spiffy new moniker, it's also been announced that the service will get a second show based in the Star Wars universe, following Jon Favreau's series The Manadalorian, which is already in production.

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

Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+. The official Star Wars website has just announced that the Rebel Alliance spy will headline his own TV series for Disney+.

Disney+ will first launch in the United States next year.

"In this era of unprecedented consumer choice, brands matter more than ever", Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said on an earnings call with investors as the "Star Wars" news broke on Thursday. The prequel will take place in the early years of the Rebellion.

PUBG Seemingly Coming to PS4 in December

Larry Drew agrees to deal to coach Cavaliers for rest of season
The 37-year-old guard is averaging only 5.5 points and 15.4 minutes per game, the lowest figures since his 2003-04 rookie season. Whoever plays Monday, Drew will be hoping his team does not allow another night where the opponent shoots at least 50 percent.

Judge Releases Defendants After Losing Re-Election, Asking If They'd Kill Anyone
Halpert, a Democrat, said Devlin, a Republican, is known to be diligent and thorough - usually running a tight docket. He said it is not unusual for Devlin to release juvenile defendants if they have adequate supervision at home .

Why it matters: Disney is really leaning into its franchises when launching a new streaming service app, according to The Verge. The series will begin production in 2019, reportedly with a budget north of $100 million.

The God of Mischief will officially live again on Disney+, and Tom Hiddleston is celebrating his return.

Other content set to appear on Disney+ includes a rebooted version of The High School Musical, an animated series based on Monsters Inc., and a number of exclusive movies. Iger said Disney is aiming to win new subscribers by investing in more original programming and taking Hulu into new worldwide markets. He is reprising his role as Cassian Andor for the series.

Disney's Netflix competitor finally has a name. Yes, that means there's more MCU material for you to watch, but this time it is actually a good - potentially great - thing.

The acquisition will give Disney a controlling stake in Hulu, allowing them to take steps to secure the licensing rights for its programs and offer some of its content to worldwide subscribers.
