May 4, 2020 doesn’t just mark the original end date for our current Circuit Breaker. If you’re a Star Wars fan, it’s also “Star Wars Day” – and May the 4th be with you.
Just because you’re sitting at home during this time doesn’t mean you can’t explore the galaxy far, far away. Here are some ways Star Wars fans can enjoy the day.
Disney+ fans can watch the release of The Last Skywalker and more
Whether you’ve missed out on the movie or are hankering for more, you can now watch Star Wars: The Last Skywalker on Disney+ (if you have a subscription). Disney is releasing this title two months ahead of schedule, debuting online on May 4 globally.
That’s not all – fans will also get to see the final episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the 8-part docuseries Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian where fans will get to see exclusive behind the scenes footage, and interviews from the cast and crew. Talk about bingeing on the Star Wars universe!
New season of The Mandalorian
For those of you who didn’t get enough of Baby Yoda, the good news is that Season 2 of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” is scheduled to debut this October.
However, news is abuzz that Disney has also begun pre-production on the third season of the franchise, according to Variety.
