On Star Wars Day, May 4th, Disney will be adding “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” onto Disney+ in the United States, Canada, UK and Ireland, two months early. It will be released a day later in the Netherlands due to the countries Memorial Day on the 4th., while in Australia/New Zealand, it will arrive on May 3rd.
The movie has been added to the Disney+ app, with its release day.
It will arrive on the same day as the Clone Wars season 7 finale and the the start of a new Disney+ documentary series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
For the first time ever, fans will be able to stream the complete Skywalker saga all in one place. What began in 1977 with George Lucas’ groundbreaking film “Star Wars: A New Hope,” the nine-part saga is available within Disney+’s extensive collection ofStar Warsmovies and series including “The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and “Rogue One: A Star WarsStory.”
In the movie, when it’s discovered that the evil Emperor Palpatine did not die at the hands of Darth Vader, the rebels must race against the clock to find out his whereabouts. Finn and Poe lead the Resistance to put a stop to the First Order’s plans to form a new Empire, while Rey anticipates her inevitable confrontation with Kylo Ren.
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.
