Monday's Headlines | THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Hits Disney+ May 4

In case you haven't head yet?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the finale of the 43-year long 'Skywalker Saga' will debut what Disney is calling two months early on streaming service Disney+ on 'Star Wars Day,' May the 4th. The film premieres along with the debut of the eight-episode documentary series Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and the series finale of the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

In addition, Disney+ will also mark the occasion with a week-long Star Wars concept art takeover on the service.

"Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May 4th to feature its original concept paintings," reads Disney+'s announcement. "From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian, the updated art will feature work from celebrated artists such as the legendary Ralph McQuarrie and Academy Award-winning artist, author, and production designer, Doug Chiang. 

On the Disney+ home screen, the animated Star Wars brand title, viewable on web and connected TV devices, gets upgraded with a new animation that honors the signature hyperspace jump."
