Following today’s surprise announcement that Disney has tapped Rian Johnson to develop a new “Star Wars” trilogy, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed big plans for TV as well.
A live-action “Star Wars” TV series will air on Disney’s new entertainment streaming service. The announcement came during Disney’s earnings call today.
New “Monsters Inc.” and “High School Musical” shows are on the way along with more new TV content from Marvel, which will depart Netflix for the streaming service.
The new service is expected to launch in 2019 and is said to be priced lower than Netflix, according to Iger.
