Show will be exclusive to Disney's new streaming service.

Lucasfilm is developing a live-action Star Wars series for Disney’s new streaming service, Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, announced today.

There isn’t much information about the series, but it will be released exclusively on Disney’s streaming service. The service is set to launch in 2019. The Star Wars series will be joined by three other live-action shows also based on Disney properties; one will be based on Marvel, another on Monster’s Inc. and a third one based on the High School Musical franchise.

“Our advantage as a company is to take advantages that exist out there for good television and take advantage of it,” Iger said during an investors call.

The announcement comes just months after Iger confirmed that all Disney movies, including Marvel and Star Wars films, will be removed from Netflix in 2019. It was recently reported that Disney was in talks to acquire the majority of 21st Century Fox, which would help build Disney’s library for the streaming service. Those talks have stalled, according to CNBC.

More information about the various series is expected to be released soon.
