Disney Streaming Service Name Revealed

Disney's streaming service, now called Disney+, has a release date (well, more like a release window), and, in quite the surprise, the House of Mouse has also announced a Star Wars: Rogue One prequel TV show.

What worked so well about "Rogue One" is that it showed the dirty side of the Rebellion, something that many people who only watched the main Star Wars movies missed.

Disney announced its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings Thursday and used the ensuing investor call to talk extensively about Hulu, ESPN+ and its upcoming Disney-branded streaming service, which will be called Disney+.

Iger described at least five content channels on Disney+: Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel and National Geographic, the last of which will become part of Disney after the close of the Fox acquisition. So, if you want to find Star Wars content, there's a dedicated place for that. Diego Luna will reprise his role as Cassian Andor in a now untitled Rogue One Prequel series to be produced for the upcoming Disney service, which has officially been named Disney Plus.

Lucasfilm will produce the series, which will go into production next year. Greenfield said Disney is going to bank on its goodwill with kids and families at first. Luna said that he's looking forward to reprising the character, and that "this new exciting format will give us a chance to explore this character more deeply".
