When will Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker be accessible on Disney+? Not in 2019, as you may think, though I suppose some followers could have hoped that the brand new streamer would launch Episode IX there straight away or soon-ish — like Netflix does with its authentic releases after a theatrical window.
As an alternative, per The Hollywood Reporter’s function on Disney+, the studio would not plan to alter its launch window to deliver newly launched films to the streamer any sooner. In line with THR, there shall be a roughly seven-month wait between a film’s launch in theaters and its launch on Disney+.
So, Toy Story 4 — which got here out in June 2019 — needs to be accessible in early 2020. However Frozen 2 (which simply handed $1 billion) and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will doubtless have to attend till summer time. Counting out seven months, it appears like The Rise of Skywalker needs to be on Disney+ in July or simply midsummer 2020.
In order that’s why Star Wars: The Final Jedi will not be on Disney+ till December 26, 2019, six days after The Rise of Skywalker comes out in theaters — as a result of Netflix nonetheless has it as much as that time. Welcome to The Streaming Wars! It is solely going to get extra fascinating in 2020.
I am used to folks saying they will wait to see one thing on Netflix, and now for Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Lucasfilm titles they might wait to see them on Disney+. However Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? It is the tip of the nine-film Skywalker Saga. Will folks wait to stream it on Disney+ or simply sit up for re-watching it on Disney+?
There are some Star Wars followers who have been very upset after The Final Jedi, so perhaps they will await Rise of Skywalker to indicate up on Disney+ to not need to pay greater than they’re already paying. I do not know.
Should you do not have already got Disney+, or know somebody who’s contemplating it, go forward and hit them up with this hyperlink to get a free 7-day trial. It is $6.99 a month, which is lower than a film ticket however the trade-off is ready about seven months to see the film. Is it value it?
