Disney's streaming service is dubbed Disney+

Speaking during Disney's Q3 Earnings Call this afternoon, CEO Bob Iger revealed that yes, a Loki TV series is coming to their new streaming service, which will be called Disney +.

Andor was an important character in Rogue One, playing one of the Rebel Alliance spies who helped transmit the plans for the Death Star before dying on the planet Scarif.

Along with the company's similarly named ESPN+ service, Disney+ is built on streaming technology from BAMTech, the onetime Major League Baseball spin-off company that powers streaming apps for everything from MLB.TV and HBO GO to PlayStation Vue and the WWE Network.

Talking about the project, which has yet to be given a release date, the actor, 38, said: 'Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. The service will have original programming and "unprecedented access" to library titles from the Disney brand itself, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

A galaxy far, far away may be closer than you think and larger than you ever imagined thanks to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Disney+ launches late next year.




Diego Luna starred alongside Felicity Jones in new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 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. Disney hopes that their new service will compete head-to-head with Netflix. "I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey". It will also be a hub for animated content, including the next season of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and an new original animated series based on Pixar's "Monsters Inc".

This announcement is exciting for lots of people who are fans of the Disney brand.

Netflix's new competition in streaming finally has a name: Disney+.

As for its other streaming services, Iger revealed Disney intends to invest in more original content for Hulu (Disney owns 60 percent of the site).

Disney will own 60 percent of Hulu after its acquisition of Fox assets are finalized, with Comcast Corp. owning the other 30 percent and 10 percent, respectively.
