Deadline is reporting that Lucasfilm is bringing on Stephen Schiff as showrunner for the Rogue One prequel series that will star Diego Luna as Rebel spy Cassian Andor. They also say that the production has hired writers. The show is expected to begin production next year.
Schiff was an executive producer of The Americans, the FX spy drama that co-starred Episode IX’s Keri Russell. He also wrote 9 episodes of the series.
The Cassian show is the second live-action Star Wars series announced for the streaming service Disney+. The first, Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian, is currently in production.
The Mandalorian is bringing on Nick Nolte, Variety reports today. Lucasfilm has yet to officially announce any casting for the series, but Variety has also reported that Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano are on board. Making Star Wars has recently reported yet another name.
The Mandalorian will debut exclusively on the streaming service Disney+, which is expected to launch late next year.
The new shorts, which revisit parts of the saga in bite-sized chunks for kids, have officially debuted on the new official Youtube channel, Star Wars Kids. There are six shorts and three “fun facts”. Watch them on StarWars.com (with commentary from producer Josh Rimes) or below the cut.

Shockingly, someone actually gets suspicious of Kaz in this Sunday’s “Secrets and Holograms.” Also, some garbage!
When a determined Kaz tries to discover the truth about Captain Doza, he and Torra embark on an adventure where they uncover more about the Tower than either bargained for.

Another series of Star Wars animated shorts is debuting on Friday. Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures “will introduce the classic themes, pivotal moments, and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga to the next generation.”
More shorts are coming in December and throughout 2019 leading up to Episode IX.
Like Forces of Destiny, we’re not exactly the target audience here – they’re aimed at “providing a kid-friendly entry point” to the saga. (Although it does give parents another way to introduce the saga to their kids!)
They’ll have a dedicated website, StarWarsKids.com, and their own Youtube channel. A new Hasbro line debuts at Walmart on December 1, and nationwide in January.
We meet a famous racer with a connection to Yeager in “The Platform Classic,” Sunday’s new episode of Star Wars Resistance.
Kaz uses the upcoming “Platform Classic” to reunite Yeager with someone from his past, Marcus – who happens to be in deep with the Guavian Death Gang. After Marcus’ mechanic is kidnapped, Kaz assists him in preparing for the race, learning more about Yeager in the process.

The Mandalorian has gained another cast member: Ex-MMA fighter Gina Carano, The Wrap reports. Her previous acting roles include Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool.
Yesterday, Variety and EW doubled down on reports that Pedro Pascal is going to lead the series. The show will be exclusive to Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, and we expect to see it sometime late next year.
In “Synara’s Score”, the next episode of Star Wars Resistance, the pirates are back and we learn a little more about Tam in our preview clip.
Doza enlists Yeager’s team to assist in the repair of a vital Platform defense. Tam and Kaz befriend Synara, a mysterious new resident of the Platform, while the pirates plot another attack.
