With more and more details coming out about The Mandalorian—Jon Favreau's live-action Star Wars series, which will be the first to debut on Disney's new streaming service—we're now learning that a second Star Wars series is already in development.

According to ​Variety, Diego Luna will reprise his role as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for an untitled live-action series set to stream on Disney Play. The show will reportedly be a prequel to Rogue One.

"Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me," Luna said. "I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply."

With The Mandalorian ​reportedly filming now, it should be only a matter of time until we get more details about this Rogue One prequel, such as the title and who will be helming it.

Given the big-name stars who have signed on to direct episodes of The Mandalorian, including Bryce Dallas Howard and Taika Waititi, we can only imagine the lineup for this new series will be equally stellar.

Want to nervously eat a dozen buffalo wings while you yell at the referee on your TV screen? Just tuck them into the upper thermal pouch in your Hunger Harness and you’re good to go. Want to make sure you have enough tortilla chips to last through the halftime show? There’s a side pocket for that, too—plus an insulated slot for your queso or dip of choice.

A built-in food tray rests on your lap and “turns you into a human table,” and there’s also a pouch for your can of soda—or more likely, your can of beer.

The Hunger Harness will be sold in waves in limited quantities. (It's currently sold out, but will be restocked again.) Keep checking the Reynolds website for updates, and if you're thinking of ordering one for yourself, please heed this advice from Reynolds: “Use caution when handling hot food and beverages.” Lovers of lava-hot pizza rolls, you've been warned.

Game of Thrones Star Liam Cunningham on Final Season: 'We're All Going to Die'

With the final season of Game of Thrones premiering in less than three months, the big question on everyone's mind is who will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne. While we all have our own guesses as to who will emerge victorious in the finale, we're also aware that pretty much anyone could die. As this is the last season, it would be silly to assume that anyone is safe.

Many of the series' stars have hinted at what we can expect when it comes to who lives and who dies; Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, called herself the "last woman standing," while Peter Dinklage hinted that his character, Tyrion Lannister, will die. Dublin-born actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, has an even darker prediction: no one will live.

While talking to host Ryan Tubridy on Ireland's The Late Late Show, Cunningham hinted that Davos will meet his demise in Season 8, along with many of his co-stars. "Congratulations for staying in the picture because there's death all around you," Tubridy told the actor, to which he replied:

"So far, so far. That doesn't mean anything. We're all going to die. Don't forget 'Valar Morghulis,' which is one of the phrases on the show which means 'all men must die.'"

Cunningham went on to clarify, "I haven't said anything," after Tubridy got excited over his statement, however he is definitely hinting at the many deaths we were already expecting.

It wouldn't be a total shock to see Davos be one of the many to die in Season 8, but we won't know for sure until Game of Thrones returns for its final season on April 14, 2019.
