Check out this incredible concept art coming to Disney+ to commemorate May 4th
Star Wars Day is one of the biggest days on the calendar, and this year carries extra significance given that our traditional festivities will be thwarted by the onset of the coronavirus. However, that isn’t stopping Disney+. In its role as the treasure trove of Star Wars awesomeness, the streamer is on hand to ensure that our celebrations will be suitably epic!
Aside from the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, beginning May the 4th the streaming service will add concept art to celebrate each chapter in the Skywalker saga and beyond. Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May the 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.

And if that isn’t enough to have you igniting your lightsabers with glee, the Disney+ home screen is also getting an upgrade. In fact, the traditional animated Star Wars logo will also get a suitably cool new animation that honors the hyperspace jump that transports us all to a galaxy far, far away…
Keep watching the home screen. These changes will begin to appear from today!
