The new series follows the adventures of the now famous rebel spy Cassian Andor, who we know as Captain Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from 2016.

Disney co-owns Hulu with 21st Century Fox, AT&T and Comcast, which owns NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC News.

They are also including shows and movies created by other connected companies such as Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

Are you excited for the upcoming Star Wars' show?

The series will go into production next year.

Disney+ is scheduled to launch in the United States in late 2019.

"We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply." he continued. In addition to the already-announced The Mandalorian, the service will feature another Star Wars series starring Diego Luna as Rogue One's Cassian Andor, and the small-screen Marvel Cinematic Universe will officially roll on with a series starring Hiddleston as Loki.

It isn't exactly a Qwikster moment, but when Disney unveiled the name of its forthcoming OTT streaming service on Thursday, it didn't exactly blow anyone's hair back.

Pixar's Monsters Inc will also appear in the form of a television series, High School Musical will be rebooted and it's believed that Marvel will receive a slew of new shows based on various comic book heroes and heroines. The initial rollout is domestic in scope, and the company won't change its legacy film-release model in an attempt to flood the zone with new subscribers ("Frozen 2" will still have a theatrical run long before it shows up on Disney+).

Before today, none of that had actually been confirmed though, but now, the Mouse House has made the official announcement.

It's no question that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will draw more Disney Parks guests than ever before when it opens in California and Florida in 2019.

It will face competition from established services from Amazon and Netflix as well as other upcoming streaming services from WarnerMedia (née Time Warner) and Apple.

Something else interesting: It won't be like Netflix insofar that Disney+ just dumps all the content into one place.
