Rogue One Prequel Series Starring Diego Luna Is Next Star Wars TV Show

Speaking of the Rebels, let's hope too there's room for more familiar faces such as Mon Mothma, General Draven and Bail Organa, played by Genevieve O'Reilly, Alistair Petrie and Jimmy Smits respectively.

And we wouldn't rule out the odd cameo from Artoo and Threepio.

On the Empire's side, maybe Ben Mendelsohn will reprise his role as the memorable lackey Orson Krennic?

Disney+, the streaming platform that the series will be available on, is set to launch in "late 2019".

While the show itself won't be finished by then, it's possible that's when we'll get our first peak at the latest prequel.

It's also possible that either the next Star Wars Celebration event or the Disney D23 Expo convention, both in 2019, could reveal an exclusive teaser of some description.

Filming is set to begin in 2019, so expect the show to hit the Disney+ streaming service the following year.

2020, as fans will already be lamenting, will be the first year without a cinematic Star Wars tale since the franchise's return in 2015. So this could fill a Sarlacc Pit-sized hole.

Rogue One prequel show plot: What's it about?

Luna is claiming that he knows "very little" at the moment as he's just "very recently" signed up, so we have scant details other than that it follows the adventures of Andor prior to the events of Rogue One.

The "formative" aspect of the Rebellion could mean that Enfys Nest is seen continuing her work against the Empire last seen in the Star Wars 'story', Solo. And, perhaps, a closer look at crime syndicate 'Crimson Dawn' and a return for Darth Maul and Emilia Clarke's Q'ira too?

The official website describes the new series as "a rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire".

So that means more dealings with the Empire – is Governor Tarkin set for another CG outing? More Vader action?

There may even be a link between this series and the other forthcoming Star Wars live-action show, The Mandalorian.

According to apparently-leaked set photos from the Disney+ TV series, Death Troopers (last seen in Rogue One) were snapped alongside Stormtroopers.

And maybe, most importantly, Diego will finally get to touch Jabba's skin?
