    Welcome to our coverage of the big Disney+ panel at Disney D23! For this article, we'll be focused on all the Star Wars news that's tied to Disney's streaming service.





    Early on in the panel, Disney executive Kevin Mayer noted that that a substantial amount of the content that will be streamed on Disney+ will be permanent to the platform, unlike how certain Disney movies and shows would come and go on Netflix. Right around this same time, Disney dropped a new trailer for Disney+, which includes lots of Star Wars clips included in the mix. Check it out below:

    Not that long afterward, representatives from Disney Channel, Pixar, Marvel Studios, National Geographic, Walt Disney Motion Pictures, and The Muppets filled the stage to go into the content that they're developing for Disney+. At this point, it became clear that they would be saving Star Wars for last. And, starting at 7:10 PM CST, the Star Wars news arrived!



    Live updates for Disney+ Star Wars content below:


    • 7:10  - Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy arrives on stage.

    And that's that! There's quite a lot to talk about for twenty minutes of stage time, and there's more to come in the days ahead as D23 continues. Stay tuned to Star Wars News Net as we keep you covered.



    The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, Taika Waititi, Bill Burr, Mark Boone Junior, and Ming-Na Wen. Directors on The Mandalorian include Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, and Dave Filoni. The series will be written and showrun by Jon Favreau, composed by Ludwig Göransson, and will have Greg Fraiser as cinematographer.

    The show's premise is as follows:

    The Mandalorian Season 1 will be released on a weekly basis starting on November 12, the launch date for the Disney+ streaming service in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, with other markets getting the series as Disney+ expands internationally. No release window for Season 2 has been given.
