The fan holiday that began as a fan pun (May the Fourth, get it?) and was ultimately adopted as a commercial and cultural event is upon us. Star Wars Day always means game updates and new merch to collect, but this year Disney’s new streaming service is also celebrating by bringing the most recent Star Wars movie to its collection. With the addition of Rise of Skywalker on Disney+, you can now watch all nine movies in the Skywalker Saga for the cost of a subscription. Episode IX was recently announced to be coming today, but that means it’s actually hitting a few months earlier than when it was previously expected to arrive on the streaming service.
That isn’t the only new piece of Star Wars streaming content available, though. The service has also added the last episode of the final season of the beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, finally bringing that lengthy story to a close. And for those curious about the craft of making a series, the first episode of Gallery: The Mandalorian is available, documenting the process of making the hit streaming series that launched a million Baby Yoda memes.
Plus, of course, the streaming service still has lots of other Star Wars content, including the spin-off movies Rogue One and Solo, the Star Wars Rebels and Resistance animated series, Forces of Destiny animated shorts, Lego Star Wars shorts, and the Empire of Dreams documentary. That’s a lot of Star Wars.

Rise of Skywalker released in December, capping off the story of Rey, Finn, and Poe as the new generation of Star Wars heroes. It was also fairly divisive among critics.
“In the end, it all feels simply empty. It should never be so clear to audiences that something in the filmmaking process has gone so terribly wrong–that the people who made the first film in a trilogy apparently didn’t bother to sketch out a plan for the second and third, and that the movies’ directors had visions for the series’ future that were so fundamentally at odds,” Michael Rougeau wrote in GameSpot’s Rise of Skywalker review. “Star Wars deserved better.”
