With the launch of the new streaming platform Disney+, Disney fans (like our family) will have lots of decisions to make.
If you’re new to our website, you may not know that we are big Star Wars fans. Like, it’s almost a sickness. So, we came up with the idea of a Star Wars Disney Plus week-long celebration in our home, once it launches.
A week long of watching Star Wars content on Disney+? Yes. The great news is that during the first day of Disney+, we will have 19 different films, shows, and documentaries to watch.
This post will be your complete guide to Star Wars on Disney+.
And don’t worry; we’ll be sure to update the post as more Star Wars content is released on the platform. You know we’ll be stalking, I mean researching any new additions.
The Mandalorian – Live Action Series
This may be the most anticipated series on the platform. The Mandalorian will be the first live-action Star Wars series. This almost Western-like, visually stunning saga takes place 5 years after The Return of the Jedi. It will contain new characters, stories, creatures and worlds.
During Star Wars Celebration, we covered what Executive Producer and writer Jon Favreau had to say about the show. Be sure to check out our Disney+ and The Mandalorian blog post for all the details.
Star Wars Movies on Disney+
At least 2 days of our Star Wars Disney Plus week will be dedicated to all of the iconic films. From A New Hope to The Force Awakens, we’re getting all of our favorites at one time.
While Star Wars: The Last Jedi and SOLO: A Star Wars Story won’t be on the platform during launch day, they will be added at a later date.
Here’s the full list of Star Wars movies that will be available on Disney+ during launch day:
- Star Wars: A New Hope
- Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
- Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
- Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
- Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
- Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Star Wars Documentaries on Disney Plus
As a big documentary buff, I’m pretty excited to see that Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy will be available on Disney+. If you’ve never seen this documentary, you’re in for a treat. It was released in 2004, and documents the making of the original Star Wars trilogy.
I’m sure as time goes on, Disney+ will release even more Star Wars documentaries to the platform. As they are released, we will update this list.
Star Wars Animated Series on Disney+
Praise the maker! We are getting an ample list of Star Wars animated series on Disney+. This may be our biggest surprise on the platform as Star Wars fans, because we do have so many amazing animated series to swoon over.
To have this list available on launch day is a dream! Here is the list of Star Wars animated series that will be available during Disney+ launch:
Star Wars: The Clones Wars (seasons one to five)
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions
- Star Wars Rebels (all seasons)
- Star Wars Resistance Season One
- LEGO Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles – Duel of the Skywalkers
- LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales
- LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (all seasons)
- LEGO Star Wars: All Stars
Star Wars Specials Worth Adding To Disney+
OK, am I the only one who’s a little bummed that we won’t get the Star Wars Holiday Special on Disney+? This kitschy but fun show from 1978 is a fan favorite, and I was sure Disney would give us a little wink by adding it to the Disney+ platform.
Here’s hoping they add it eventually because…we all need that holiday special in our lives forever and ever.
