If you sense a disturbance in the Force, you're not alone.

But you're going to have to wait a bit for it. Variety's Justin Kroll notes that Luna has to finish filming another season of Netflix's Narcos: Mexico before getting returning to the world of Star Wars.

Star Wars fans were given a huge surprise from Disney today when CEO Bob Iger confirmed that a new live-action TV series focusing on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Cassian Andor would be heading into production next year.

Disney said a year ago that it plans to launch its own streaming service in 2019 and would pull its first-run movies from Netflix to put them on a Disney-branded service.

Luna said in a statement that the format would be a chance to "explore this character more deeply". There is no word yet on whether or not we'll see Alan Tudyk reprise his role as Cassian Andor's sardonic, perpetually grumpy sidekick, the reprogrammed imperial security droid K-2SO.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel?

Jon Favreau is now hard at work on The Mandalorian, but we still don't know who will be running things with this new untitled Cassian Andor series.

Per the release,"The 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". The Rogue One prequel is the second Star Wars series planned for the service, with Disney also creating The Mandalorian, based on the race of Jedi-fighting warriors best known via Boba Fett. Given that film's high mortality rate, a sequel would have been a hard proposition.

There will also be a 10-part documentary series about High School Musical along with a docu-series called Ink & Paint, about the women animators who were unsung heroes in Disney's Rise.

Disney announced fresh details of its family focused streaming service, including the new name - Disney+.
