Upon the Disney Plus launch in the UK, The Rise of Skywalker was the only Star Wars movie not to be immediately available.

That has now changed as The Rise of Skywalker has been released, rather fittingly, on Disney Plus on Monday 4 May – otherwise known as Star Wars day due to May the Fourth sounding so similar to the famous phrase “May the Force (be with you)”.

How much does Disney Plus cost?

Disney Plus is now available in the UK, and it allows you to stream from the massive library of Disney TV shows and movies, as well as the biggest films from Marvel, Pixar, and 29 seasons of The Simpsons.

You can sign up for a seven day free trial of the streaming service, but after that it will then cost £5.99 per month, or £59.99 per year.
