If by any chance you missed the final chapter of the epic Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker back in December 2019, your wait to watch it digitally just got shortened by two whole months.
The last installment of the original Star Wars series will debut on the streaming service — when else? — on May 4, colloquially known as “Star Wars Day” among fans of the galactic movie franchise. With the addition to Disney Plus, for the first time ever, fans will be able to stream all nine films in George Lucas’s Skywalker saga all in one place.
Other Disney Plus teed up for May the 4th are eight-episode docuseries Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and the series finale of the animated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”
With theaters shuttered nationwide during the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney continues to lean heavily on Disney Plus as an outlet for its premium entertainment product. It previously moved up the release of Frozen 2 on the subscription-video service, and set June 12 as the direct-to-streaming premiere date for Kenneth Branagh’s Artemis Fowl live-action sci-fi fantasy.
If you have just begun watching the Star Wars saga, you might just make it on time to watch the final chapter when it is out.
