Disney-Owned Streaming Service Hulu Is Coming To Canada

Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role

Star Wars TV series with Diego Luna as his Rogue One character in the works

Disney has also released two more movies based on characters developed by George Lucas - "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and "Solo: A Star Wars Story".

Diego Luna will reprise his Star Wars role as Cassian Andor in that takes place before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

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

"Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me", he said in a statement accompanying the series announcement. The company's streaming service will feature content from some of its most popular brands, including Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar. Being that this is a prequel to the movie, I doubt Felicity Jones makes an appearance, but it's Star Wars, so you never know.

Diego Luna will star in a new "Star Wars" series for Disney's upcoming streaming service. The series will start production in 2019.

Other new shows and movies include a rebooted version of The High School Musical franchise.

The electricity was produced by using 3D printing to place clusters of cyanobacteria, which derives its energy from the sun, on the mushroom .

Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+.

A live-action series based on god-of-mischief "Loki" from "Thor" comic lore is being developed by Marvel Studios for Disney+, according to Iger.

Fans can also look forward to exclusive movies like Noel, a Christmas movie about Santa's daughter played by Anna Kendrick, and Togo, a movie about the 1925 Nome Serum Run starring William DaFoe.

There was some confusion about the potential name for the service when a app icon for the Play Disney Parks app was confused for a leak of the streaming service.

"We've aimed to actually grow the attendance to that park, which has lagged a bit over the last number of years, because we haven't invested anything that is even this close to size or scale or of compelling nature of it", Iger said during the call. The same goes for Hulu, of which Disney will own 60% following the Fox deal, and which has yet to launch anywhere outside of the U.S.

But Infinity War might be a different case, as the blockbuster hit saw Thanos steal all of the Infinity Stones and destroy half the population of Earth with just the click of his fingers thanks to his Infinity Gauntlet.
