May the fourth be with you! Today is internationally recognised as Star Wars day, and if you’d like to celebrate then there’s plenty of things on offer to show off your Jedi pride.
If you have Disney Plus, then there’s several new Star Wars goodies to watch. You can marathon all nine movies, as Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is now available to stream on the platform. In addition to that, there’s also the season finale of The Clone Wars, and a brand new eight-episode documentary to check out, called Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.
This show includes behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew from the live-action show, all hosted by showrunner Jon Favreau. Users will also be able to choose from a selection of new avatars for their profile pictures, including Darth Maul, Jabba the Hut and a Porg. You can take a look at everything (including future shows) in our guide to Star Wars content on Disney+.
But it’s not just Disney Plus subscribers that are getting a Star Wars day treat. If you’re a Sky Cinema or Now TV customer, then you’ll also get access to The Rise of Skywalker to complete the entire Skywalker saga.
Gamers can also rejoice, as Star Wars loot is back to purchase in the shop in Fortnite. You can get lightsabers, and outfits in the style of Rey, Kylo Ren and the Sith Troopers. However, these items will only be available for purchase for a limited time – Epic Games hasn’t specified how long this will be.
Feel like a Jedi as Lightsabers have returned for a limited time!
