Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service.

The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

I clicked "Like" in the post above, because I am pleased with this news. :) Now, I guess I have to join the 21st century and participate in that "streaming" stuff. But then, I have to move a few blocks away, since my city has a couple "holes" in its online services, where higher speeds aren’t available. Guess where I live?

Still, Cassian would an excellent character choice for a solo series.

I quite like the character of Cassian Andor, and even I don’t think most folks are going to want to watch his story. This is a big risk.

I’m excited for "Captain Andor: Rebel Spy!"

This could be really good. I am a huge fan of Turn: Washington’s Spies, a 4-season Revolutionary War historical series. This show could be like that with cameos by other great characters. I’d love it to be adult, and cross moral lines like Rogue One did.

It’s odd that Alan Tudyk wasn’t announced. He seems like a given.
