Get a full rundown of everything from a galaxy far, far away that US fans can watch on launch day.
The countdown to the launch of Disney+ is ticking steadily down to lift-off, and although the platform is still to receive an official release date here in the UK fans across the pond are gearing up for what looks to be an essential streaming platform. Amongst a plethora of fantastic Disney, National Geographic and Marvel content is a section devoted entirely to the adventures from a galaxy far, far away, and it is here where you can plan the greatest Star Wars marathon of all-time!
Here’s the official line from StarWars.com:
Disney+ launches on November 12, and it will feature a galaxy of Star Wars movies and series. From the original Star Wars trilogy to The Mandalorian — the first live-action Star Wars series, available exclusively on Disney+ — you’ll find your favourite stories from a galaxy far, far away available for streaming. StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal the full list of everything Star Wars coming to Disney+ in the US on November 12:
- Star Wars: A New Hope
- Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
- Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
- Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
- Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
- Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
- Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Seasons One to Five)
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars — The Lost Missions

- LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (All Seasons)
- LEGO Star Wars: All-Stars
During the first year of service launch in the US, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will become available. Coming to Disney+ in February 2020 is the long-awaited conclusion of the beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, with 12 new episodes helmed by series shepherd Dave Filoni. A Cassian Andor live-action series starring Diego Luna (reprising his Rogue One role) is in the works for Disney+, and just announced at D23 Expo 2019, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor is planned for the service.
In its first year, Disney+ will release more than 25 original series, 10 original films, and documentaries. Subscribers will also enjoy unprecedented access to Disney’s vast collection of films and television shows.
This is incredibly exciting, although, I would be remiss if I didn’t voice our frustration at the service still not receiving a launch date in the UK. Unfortunately, new UK legislation has come into play which enforces outside platform developers to incorporate a certain percentage of homegrown content on its service before any licences are agreed. Netflix has appeased this rule with the incorporation of British programming and now Disney+ must do the same. Let’s just hope the wait isn’t an arduous one. UK fans will already be deprived of the launch of The Mandalorian. Any further deprivation will be most unwelcome.
