Disney to stream Star Wars live-action series



Rogue One: A Star Wars Story began as a live-action television series idea following the completion of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

George Lucas stockpiled scripts created with Ronald D. Moore of Battlestar Galactica fame. Whilst these scripts were never used, Disney inherited them when the company bought Lucasfilm in 2012.

The Mouse House has ambitions to challenge streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon. What better way to launch a new service than with an exclusive Star Wars series? CBS All Access has seen success with this strategy by streaming Star Trek: Discovery.
