The Complete Skywalker Saga, all in one place…or two if you count Sky Cinema!
This will be a day-long remembered…
Disney/Lucasfilm has announced that the final chapter in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker will launch on Disney Plus on May 4th (Star Wars Day). For the first time ever, fans will be able to stream the complete Skywalker saga all in one place — perfect for Star Wars Day marathons
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker joins Disney+’s May the 4th line-up including the premiere of the eight-episode documentary series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and the series finale of the award-winning animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
In addition to new content offerings, 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.
And if that isn’t enough to have you igniting your lightsaber and swooshing it around the living room with glee, fans in the UK can look forward to having The Rise Of Skywalker premiering on Sky Cinema on the same day. As per the deal with Disney/Lucasfilm, every subscriber to the broadcaster’s movies package will be able to enjoy the Skywalker finale in glorious HD from May 4th.
This is awesome news. At last, fans around the world can look forward to sitting back end enjoying the entire Skywalker saga in all its glory and all in one place.
Thank you Disney Plus.
