May the fourth be with you.
It certainly will be this year, as the latest instalment in the Star Wars franchise hits Disney+ two months early. [Featured Image: @starwars, Instagram]
May The Fourth has come to be known as Star Wars Day. This year, while everyone is stuck indoors, super fans will at least get to enjoy their first stream of the newest film.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker was slated for release on the streaming service in July, after hitting cinemas in December 2019. However, the world has got quite rocky since then, and we could all use a bit of the force to come to our rescue.
This means that fanatics can stream all nine of the Star Wars movies—back-to-back if they please—all on one streaming platform.
May The Fourth content doesn’t even stop there. An eight-episode docuseries dubbed Disney Galleries: The Mandolorian will drop and examine Baby Yoda’s world. Moreover, the date will see the release of the series finale for The Clone Wars.
The Rise Of Skywalker was the third and final movie made by Disney to follow the original storyline.
So, May The Fourth might be a normal lockdown day for some. But, for many, it marks a historic occasion, along with plenty of Star Wars content. May the force be with you all.
