Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will stream two months early on Disney+ in honor of Star Wars Day (aka May the 4th). Now Star Wars fans will be able to stream all nine films of The Skywalker Saga in one platform.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker made over $1 billion worldwide. The ensemble includes Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid and Billy Dee Willams.
Although it currently sits at 52% on Rotten Tomatoes (via the critics’ score), it holds an above average 86% audience score. I’m a fan of The Rise of Skywalker (movie reviewer Bruce Purkey has a different take) and it’s one of my favorite Star Wars movies (right below The Empire Strikes Back).
The ability to stream all nine films in sequential order should give me a deeper appreciation of the franchise, but maybe I’m in the minority in saying that both The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker were excellent films.
What are your thoughts on The Skywalker Saga streaming in its complete form on Disney + come May 4? Are you also a fan of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts on the films!!!
