    May the Fourth has been an unofficial Star Wars holiday for fans, and this year it will be quite bountiful. Not only will we get the ending of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, but The Rise of Skywalker will also arrive on the streaming service on the day this year.







    The Rise of Skywalker, the conclusion to the Skywalker Saga that encompasses the original, prequel, and sequel trilogies, hit digital formats slightly earlier than planned. The move was done as a reaction to the sudden spread of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, as Disney made moves to reconfigure their strategies with distributing entertainment this year while theaters are closed down. Among other things, this resulted in both Frozen II and Onward hitting the service way earlier than originally intended, and it seems like they are going to be joined by the last movie that joined the $1B club worldwide - which will also likely be the last movie to reach that milestone for quite a while.



    Right now, searching Disney+ for The Rise of Skywalker leads to a temporary page stating that the movie will be coming to the streaming service soon, and now we know that May the Fourth is indeed the day that the movie will go to the streaming service. Check out a screen shot of the page below:

    This movie is the first Star Wars film that will stream exclusively through Disney+ instead of going to places like Starz (as was the case for The Force Awakens) or Netflix (as was the case with Rogue One, The Last Jedi, and Solo). This will be the norm for Star Wars movies going forward, and by the time this holiday hits, fans can watch The Rise of Skywalker and the other Skywalker Saga films on one platform. Rogue One is also on there, and while Solo has yet to be added due to being licensed to Netflix for the time being, it will arrive to Disney+ very shortly after it leaves Netflix.



    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital formats. It will arrive on Disney+ on May 4, 2020.

    However unlikely it would be REALLY great if this included some deleted scenes on D+. Sure seems like plenty got left on the cutting room floor and the bonus features on the digital and blu-ray were solid (loved the documentary!) but sure would be cool to see some outtakes!

    Ever less likely but would love an extended JJ directors cut too. One can dream!

    What a nice date to release it. Surprisingly fast, since they just started selling the blu-rays and digital store-versions (I'm still waiting for my 4K-bluray since they don't release until next week in Norway). If Disney plus was in my country, I could see myself watching it there for the convenience, but I need to have it in my physical collection as well.

    I was pretty happy about the movie itself when I saw it in the theater, so it will probably be rewatched a lot around here. It's not the best of the Star Wars movies, and not even on the top 5 in my personal ranking, but there are a lot of things I adore about it, and when I watch it, most of the things that drag it down for me are just forgotten in favor of the good moments. I think I maybe give the ST a little too much good-will because of all the fan negativity in the last few years, and I just genuinelly enjoy them all. Not that we shouldn't criticize the things that could be better. But there is something to be said for just enjoying the things that make you happy. Sorry about the random sidetrack.
