The Skywalker Saga is now finally going to be available all in one place, as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be coming to Disney+ two months early on May 4.
A trailer for the complete Skywalker Saga can be viewed here:
A press release regarding the film’s release on streaming stated the following:
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.
The release of The Rise of Skywalker on Disney+ no doubt is due to people currently staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is going around world right now. With that being said, it is great to finally have all of the Star Wars movies available in one place for people to watch.
Concept Art from The Rise of Skywalker and More Incoming!
The aforementioned press release also stated the following:
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.
I think that it’s really cool that fans are going to be able to see some unreleased concept art that has never been seen by the public eye before. It’ll be great to see if Lucasfilm releases any other never before seen Star Wars material sometime in the future.
