CEO Bob Iger announced on the company's earnings call Thursday that it will be called Disney+ and that it's scheduled to launch late 2019.

Disney first revealed plans for their streaming service back in 2017, when the company stated that it would become the exclusive home in the USA for on-demand viewing of numerous latest live-action and animated Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar films.

Disney's new streaming service, called Disney+, will be launching in late 2019.

That includes new spin-off shows from movies like Star Wars: Rogue One, which will see the return of Diego Luna's character from that film, Cassian Andor, headline a standalone TV show.

Bell has been working out in Miami this season, but on Monday he tweeted "Fairwell Miami" without further explanation. The transition tag would allow Bell to negotiate with other teams and allow the Steelers to match any offer.

Given that film's ending, we can assume that the new Star Wars show will be a prequel series.

Swelling with its takeover of much of 21st Century Fox, Disney is fortifying itself with ammunition to battle deep-pocketed tech companies like Netflix, Apple and Amazon. Can you come up with something better?

The new service will feature all your Disney and Pixar favorites along with everything from the Star Wars franchise and the Marvel universe.

And now Disney has shared the details for another Star Wars show.
