To celebrate Star Wars Day (May the 4th), the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” has dropped on to Disney+, completing the Skywalker Saga.
For the first time ever, fans are 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 of Star Wars movies and series including “The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
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.
The film stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, with Ian McDiarmid and Billy Dee Williams.
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.
