As many of you well know, today is a very special day in the Star Wars community; it’s May the 4th, Star Wars Day. We’re talking about a long-running iconic franchise that’s  brought in over $10 billion at the worldwide box office, launched a number of hugely popular animated series including the big return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and influenced countless other filmmakers and franchises to show their love for a galaxy far, far away with direct references to Star Wars characters and events. Clearly there’s a lot to celebrate here and now due to the existence of Disney+, we can find almost everything Star Wars right in one spot. (Although I do highly recommend seeking out Star Wars comics, novels and the extensive amount of material that now falls under the Legends banner.)

The Disney+ team just fired off a full breakdown of all their available Star Wars programming, so we figured we’d bring it to you in a handy list so you can scroll through and see what’s available at a glance. Personally? As much as I love the Skywalker Saga, it’s the supplementary material that’s really catching my eye right now, particularly Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, an eight-episode documentary-series that offers up a behind-the-scenes look at the show, hosted by Jon Favreau.

So that’s what I’ll be starting with, but there are loads of other options on the line-up! You can check out everything Disney+ is highlighting in honor of May the 4th below. Enjoy and may the force be with you!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: In the series finale “Victory and Death,” Hunted by old friends that have now become enemies, Ahsoka and Rex find themselves in a desperate race for their own survival. With the galaxy in chaos, they must use all of their skills and cunning to outwit the dangerous forces that surround them. You might know who survives, but you don’t know how or why . . .

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian: “Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian” is an eight-episode documentary series that pulls back the curtain on The Mandalorian. Each chapter explores a different facet of the first live-action Star Wars television show through interviews, behind the scenes footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Jon Favreau. In the first episode “Directing,” the filmmakers speak about their individual journeys on the way to the director’s chair and take us inside the filmmaking process of The Mandalorian. In the second episode “Legacy,” premiering Friday, May 8, the cast and crew gather to reflect on the influence of Star Wars on both their lives and The Mandalorian.

May The 4th Concept Art Takeover: Disney+ is honoring the artistry of Star Wars with a week-long 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. The Disney+ homepage carousel will feature Star Wars concept art from the legendary Ralph McQuarrie from his 1975 painting of the droids in the desert. For the first time, fans will be able to navigate to a dedicated brand page directly from carousel art. Once immersed in the Star Wars brand page fans will be treated to an adaption of character art from the Star Wars Celebration 2019 commemorative mural by Jason Palmer and other celebrated artists.
