For the first time since Disney+ launched last year, the entire Skywalker Saga will now be available for fans starting May 4th. Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) serves as the final chapter of the Saga that began 43 years ago. The movie stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, with Ian McDiarmid and Billy Dee Williams. It has a PG-13 rating and a run time of 2 hours and 22 minutes.

Friendly Reminder: Due to the Memorial Day holiday, fans in the Netherlands won’t be able to stream the movie until May 5th.

May 4th is a big day in the Star Wars fandom. Known as Star Wars Day or May The Fourth, it has become a celebration day for fans of the franchise worldwide. In addition to the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the line up will also include the release of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Disney+ also has other plans to celebrate the franchise that week as well.

Disney+ will also honor the artistry of Star Wars with a week-long concept art takeover on the service. Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May 4th to feature its original concept paintings. From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian, the updated art will feature work from celebrated artists such as the legendary Ralph McQuarrie and Academy Award-winning artist, author, and production designer, Doug Chiang. On the Disney+ home screen, the animated Star Wars brand tile, viewable on web and connected TV devices, gets upgraded with a new animation that honors the signature hyperspace jump.
