These shows would be in addition to a prequel to the Rogue One film, which will be based on the character Cassian Andor portrayed by Diego Luna and Jon Favreau's live-action series The Mandalorian.

Disney+ will be launched in late 2019 as previously announced by CEO Bob Iger in 2018. The streaming service is expected to feature new original shows and films based on Marvel characters as well.

Tom Hiddleson, who plays Loki in the Avengers franchise, has been confirmed to star in a standalone series. In September 2018, Disney hinted that it is developing standalone shows on popular Marvel comics characters Loki and Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen for its new streaming video service. It was also reported that Marvel is developing a Falcon-Winter Soldier limited TV series for Disney+.
