Every movie in the Skywalker saga will finally be available in one place when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker becomes available on Disney+ next month! Disney+ has announced that Episode IX will be available to stream on Star Wars Day, which is Monday, May 4!
It’s the third major Star Wars-related addition to the Disney+ library scheduled for May 4, following the streaming service’s previous announcement that it will add the finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a docuseries about the making of The Mandalorian called Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian on the same day.
The Rise of Skywalker is the latest major Disney title to become available on the streaming service. The company set a tantalizing precedent when it released Frozen 2 on Disney+ three months early, followed shortly thereafter by Disney and Pixar’s Onward, which had debuted in theaters only a month prior. Even Artemis Fowl is coming early to the streaming service in June! The gesture was a gracious one for parents stuck at home with bored children during coronavirus isolation.
The Rise of Skywalker is currently available on digital platforms like Amazon, Apple TV, Google Play, and Vudu. DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the film were released on March 31.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concluded the Skywalker story within Star Wars film universe. Disney has yet to announce exactly what the next set of Star Wars films will focus on, though Marvel boss Kevin Feige is on board to helm one.
