Disney+: How to Celebrate ‘May the Fourth’ with New Star Wars Content

Ben Bowman

Disney+ is celebrating “Star Wars Day” (May the Fourth) with some new content for fans. There’s a 3-minute “Simpsons” short called “The Force Awakens From Its Nap,” an 18-minute offering called “Star Wars: Biomes,” which takes you to the series’ iconic locations, and “Vehicle Flythroughs” that allow you to see inside some of the movies’ most iconic ships.

The biggest event would be the launch of “The Bad Batch,” an animated adventure that’s a spin-off of “The Clone Wars.”

Of course, Disney+ is home to all your Star Wars goodies. Will you watch the original trilogy? Binge “The Mandalorian”? Give the prequel trilogy another shot? See if “Solo” is really as disappointing as it seemed? Watch the ultra-weird Ewok movies? Geek out with the end of “Rogue One” over and over? Debate the merits of the new trilogy? Let the Force guide you and enjoy that galaxy far, far away!

The Original Trilogy

  • Tähtien sota

    25. toukokuuta 1977

    The Star Wars film that started it all! Considering that this is the movie that launched the franchise, we think it’s the best place for any viewer to start. It’s the classic adventure of Luke Skywalker learning the ways of the Force from Obi-Wan Kenobi and leaving his home on Tatooine to go save a princess. A New Hope also does a fantastic job of illustrating the galaxy far, far away, and sets up for the next two films in the original trilogy.

  • Imperiumin vastaisku

    20. toukokuuta 1980

    Considered by many to be the strongest film in the series, the movie starts with a bang and doesn’t pull any punches. Princess Leia’s relationship with Han Solo develops further, as does the rivalry between Luke and the villainous, mysterious Darth Vader. Our reason for putting the original trilogy first rather than the prequels is in no small part thanks to the jaw-dropping plot twist towards the end; perhaps the best in cinematic history?

  • Jedin paluu

    25. toukokuuta 1983

    Return of the Jedi concludes the journey of Luke Skywalker’s rise to Jedihood as he faces his destiny and learns more about how his family fits into the shape of the galaxy. Long way to come for a Tatooine farm boy, isn’t it? With Jabba the Hutt, Ewoks, a second Death Star, and the Emperor himself arriving to clean house? Now that’s the way to cap off the original trilogy in style!

The Prequel Trilogy

  • Star Wars: Episodi I – Pimeä uhka

    19. toukokuuta 1999

    The first film in the prequel trilogy, The Phantom Menace starts off with Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his young apprentice, Obi Wan Kenobi (remember him?) as they collaborate on a seemingly benign routine investigation of the Trade Federation. A young Anakin Skywalker is introduced here, and viewers will get more of a deep dive into the methodology of the Jedi, the Force, and what the galaxy was like precluding the fall of the Republic and the ensuing… star wars.

  • Star Wars: Episodi II – Kloonien hyökkäys

    15. toukokuuta 2002

    Equal parts space adventure and political thriller, Attack of the Clones shows Obi-Wan taking up the role of mentoring fledgling Jedi Anakin Skywalker, all while he pursues a forbidden romance with Senator Padmé Amidala. The clone army (that looks suspiciously similar to the stormtroopers) makes its first appearance here, and we get more hints that dark forces are at play beneath the seemingly placid waters of the Republic.

  • Star Wars: Episodi III – Sithin kosto

    17. toukokuuta 2005

    The greater the paradise, the farther the fall. And fall it does! Revenge of the Sith is the darkest film of the prequel trilogy, and it unfolds as we all knew it had to: With the rise of Emperor Palpatine, the birth of a galactic Empire, and the tragic eradication of the Jedi. A wedge is driven between Obi-wan and Anakin, and after a climactic battle over raging fires and molten lava, we’re (mostly) set up for the ensuing story of Luke, Han, and Leia.

The Disney Trilogy

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    15. joulukuuta 2015

    The first film of the sequel trilogy, we’re given a familiar formula to the beloved A New Hope, but with a few twists and turns to shake things up. Our new protagonists, Rey and Finn, search for the lost Luke Skywalker (with the help of Han Solo and General Leia Organa) and also search inward, confronting the demons and the mysteries of their past. Kylo Ren also assumes center stage as our new villain: A young man desperate to prove himself while suffocating in the shadow of Darth Vader’s legacy.

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    13. joulukuuta 2017

    Thematically similar to Empire Strikes Back, The Last Jedi puts our heroes in their darkest moments. Rey searches for her place in the galaxy, trying to convince the disillusioned Luke Skywalker to aid the Resistance while Kylo Ren attempts to turn her to the Dark Side. Finn and Rose learn the toll war takes on this galaxy, while Poe struggles to find trust in leadership.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    18. joulukuuta 2019

    The definitive end to the Skywalker saga, Rise of Skywalker brings back the series’ iconic antagonist, Emperor Palpatine, and pits him against Rey and the Resistance in the ultimate struggle between the Jedi and the Sith. Rey learns the truth of her past and what it means for her destiny, and a final confrontation decides the fate of the galaxy.

The Standalone Films

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    14. joulukuuta 2016

    Sodan raivotessa ryhmä yllättäviä sankareita ryhtyy yhteistyöhön tehtävänään varastaa suunnitelmat Kuolontähteen, Imperiumin suurimpaan joukkotuhoaseeseen. Tämä keskeinen tapahtuma Tähtien sodan aikajatkumossa tuo yhteen tavalliset ihmiset, jotka päättävät yltää ainutlaatuisiin tekoihin iskostuen samalla osaksi jotain heitä suurempaa.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    15. toukokuuta 2018

    Han Solon tarina käynnistyy tämän ollessa noin parikymppinen rikollisliigan piikkiin rötöstelevä poika, joka haaveilee paosta tähtiin tyttöystävänsä Qi’ran kanssa. Nuori mies kuitenkin nousee Corellia-planeetan viemäreistä taitavaksi salakuljettajaksi. Solon ura lähtee kirjaimellisesti lentoon hänen törmättyään Tobias Beckettin johtamaan rikollisjoukkoon. Solo ja tämän uusi ystävä Chewbacca liittyvät Beckettin jengiin ja lähtevät suorittamaan enemmän tai vähemmän itsemurhalta haiskahtavia tehtäviä. He työskentelevät rikollisyndikaatti Crimson Dawnin laskuun, jonka pomona on pahamaineninen Dryden Voss. Lopulta Solon tie johtaa Lando Carlissianin luo, joka on universumin paras salakuljettaja. Loppu onkin sitä suurta Star Wars -saagaa.

  • Star Wars: Ewokien Taistelu

    25. marraskuuta 1984
  • Ewoks: Taistelu Endorista

Animated Adventures

  • Star Wars: Droids

    7. syyskuuta 1985

    Star Wars: Droids, also known as Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO, and 2004 re-released on DVD as Star Wars Animated Adventures: Droids, is an animated television series that features the exploits of R2-D2 and C-3PO, the droids who have appeared in all six Star Wars films. The series takes place between the events depicted in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

    Over the course of the series, the droids team up with four different sets of masters. The series is divided up into three cycles: at the beginning of each, the droids usually run into their new masters in an accidental way, and at the end of each cycle, they usually are forced to leave their masters for one reason or another. The Great Heep, a television special following the series, served as a prequel to the third Mungo Baobab cycle.

    The series’ opening theme, “Trouble Again,” was performed by Stewart Copeland of the Police and written by Copeland and Derek Holt.

  • Star Wars: Ewoks

    7. syyskuuta 1985

    Star Wars: Clone Wars is an Emmy Award- and Annie Award-winning American animated micro-series set in the Star Wars universe.

    Chronologically, the series takes place during the three-year time period between the prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The show depicted the actions of various characters in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, including Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, and other Knights of the Jedi Order during the conflict, leading the clone trooper forces of the Galactic Republic against the battle droid armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Sith.

Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures, and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

  • Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy

    12. syyskuuta 2004

    From the earliest versions of the script to the blockbuster debuts, explore the creation of the Star Wars Trilogy.

  • Disney Gallery / Star Wars: The Mandalorian

    4. toukokuuta 2020

    Executive producer Jon Favreau invites the cast and crew of The Mandalorian to share an unprecedented look at the making of the series. Each chapter explores a different facet of the first live-action Star Wars television show through interviews, never-before-seen footage, and roundtable conversations hosted by Favreau himself.

  • Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge - Adventure Awaits

    29. syyskuuta 2019

    An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new lands at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in Southern California.

Our pick for the best Star Wars content in the last 35 years is “The Mandalorian.” Not as epic or silly as the Prequel Trilogy. Not as aimless as the Disney Trilogy. This series feels like it fits with the Original Trilogy, taking it back to its “Western in space” roots, pulling from the Kurosawa-Mifune “lone samurai” films and remixing them with sci-fi. If you haven’t seen it, now’s the time.

The Mandalorian

12. marraskuuta 2019

Mandalorian sarjassa seurataan yksinäisen palkkionmetsästäjän seikkailuja galaksin ulottuvuuksissa, kaukana Uuden Tasavallan käskyvallan ulottumattomissa.
