Disney announces Loki TV show on their new streaming service

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

Disney has finally unveiled a name and timetable for its much-hyped streaming platform. Disney will be holding an event in April to reveal more details on the upcoming service, which will launch sometime in 2019.

Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated is Jon Favreau's upcoming live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, which according to Iger, isn't the only live action Star Wars series in development at Disney+.

The new service will be called Disney+, and it will include content from Disney and connected brands, including a brand new television show centred on Marvel anti-hero Loki.

The show will be released on Disney's brand new streaming service, Disney+.

Iger said the service in some cases was attracting audiences 20 years younger than traditional TV and described the advertising opportunity as "underappreciated".

Disney+, by comparison, will include movies and TV shows aimed at family audiences, and Hulu will reach broader with edgier programming for adults. "And we think we have enough right now and we'll be able to continue to license more", Iger said.

Jones crew chief Chris Gayle was fined $50,000 and vehicle chief Jason Overstreet was suspended the next two races. Crew chief Jeremy Bullins is fined $50,000, and auto chief Kirk Almquist is suspended for the next two races.

There's plenty more, including a spin-off series starring Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki within the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

The Disney Streaming Service has a name and to the surprise of nearly no one, it is Disney+, which follows the format of ESPN's streaming service, ESPN+. But Disney+ also see an influx of its own original content to tempt subscribers away from the services they already use. So, if you want to find Star Wars content, there's a dedicated place for that.

Disney+ is the crown jewel in the entertainment giant's big-picture strategy to pull all its classic movies and blockbuster franchises into one exclusive home, further fragmenting the streaming media market for consumers.

The expansive slate is now being announced little by little, with the most recent reveal confirming Tom Hiddleston's return as Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in an original series of his own.

The show is one of several ambitious series coming to Disney's Netflix challenger, which it has christened Disney+.

The series was being made for Disney+ with a release date yet to be determined, the company said in a release.
