This morning, StarWars.com reported that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will complete the Skywalker Saga on Disney+ on Star Wars Day – May 4, 2020.
The final chapter of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will begin streaming two months early on Disney+ in honor of May the 4th, also known as 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. What began in 1977 with George Lucas’ groundbreaking Star Wars: A New Hope, the nine-part saga is available within Disney+’s extensive collection of Star Wars movies and series including The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams joined forces once again to deliver Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the thrilling climactic chapter in the Skywalker saga, bringing the heroic struggle to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy to an epic, resounding conclusion.
Already a Momentus Day!
The release also reminded fans that May 4 was ALREADY a watershed day for Star Wars programming; what with the beginning of one Star Wars series and the beginning of another.
The Mothership added:
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.
