In an end of an era, an instalment of the Skywalker saga will hit home entertainment one last time.
However, Rise of Skywalker launches in a much more exciting time than its predecessors – not only do we now have widespread digital releases, but new platform Disney+ is available for use.
So is Rise of Skywalker available on Disney+ UK? And if not, how can I watch it?
When will Star Wars Rise of Skywalker be on Disney Plus UK?
Quite fittingly, The Rise of Skywalker has arrived on Disney Plus UK – 4th May 2020.
You can sign up to Disney+ for £59.99 for a year, or £5.99 a month. You will be able to catch various Pixar films, Marvel films and so much more.
The date has long been associated with Star Wars events and celebrations, thanks to the irresistible pun: “May the 4th be with you!”
Rise of Skywalker was the only Star Wars movie not available on the service at launch, meaning that fans will have the complete saga at their fingertips from the first week of May.
The film’s surprise release follows a similar early Disney Plus launch for the studio’s animated smash-hit, Frozen 2, in the USA.
What’s the digital release date of Rise of Skywalker?
The Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker digital release date in the UK was Monday 13th April.
The US digital release date was moved forward to 13th March, following the lead of several other early VOD releases.
