May the force be with you this Star Wars Day!

Abigail Malbon

If the words “Star Wars Day” mean anything to you, you’ll know that today - May the 4th - is a day for celebrating anything to do with the Star Wars universe - and Disney+ is making it even more special with a bunch of new releases in honour of the date.

Along with the content that’s been available to users since Disney+ launched in March, fans will be able to stream Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker a whole two months early from today

Of course, that’s not all - a new episode of series The Mandalorian is also landing, plus a documentary series about the show. In “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian,” Executive Producer Jon Favreau invites the cast and crew to share an unprecedented look at the making of the series.

“Not only can fans can enjoy Episode 8 of ‘The Mandalorian’ on Friday 1st of May, they can also look forward to the highly anticipated conclusion of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” alongside the global premiere of the new eight-episode documentary series, “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian”.
