Disney+ is adding Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker for ALL subscribers next week

STAR Wars fans will be able to watch the latest movie on Disney+ from May 4.

The new streaming service will be adding Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for all subscribers.

It's in celebration of Star Wars day: May 4, as in "May the fourth be with you".

The Rise of Skywalker is the latest entry to the Star Wars movie franchise.

It's being added free of charge – so you can avoid buying a DVD or Blu-ray simply by signing up to Disney+.

A Disney+ subscription costs £5.99 a month, or £72 per year.

You'll be able to enjoy the new movie in 4K Ultra HD quality, if you've got a capable TV.

And it's also available in High Dynamic Range for anyone with a HDR telly too.

In a tweet, the official Star Wars account on Twitter said: "The complete Skywalker Saga, all in one place.

"Start streaming all 9 films, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, on May the 4th, only on #DisneyPlus."

The new addition will come just three days after the final episode of The Mandalorian is released in the UK.

Americans have been able to watch the entire run of the Star Wars spin-off TV series for months – but the UK launch was delayed.

Both the UK and USA will also be able to watch a The Mandalorian docu-series on May 4 too.

This will be a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show with director Jon Favreau.

Disney+ launched in the USA in late 2019, and at the end of March in the UK.

It's a new streaming service designed to rival Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+ and others.

As well as core Disney content, the app also serves up TV shows, movies, documentaries and shorts from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic.

Disney says nearly all major mobile and connected TVs are supported – including smart TVs from Samsung.

Gaming consoles including the Xbox One and PS4 offer Disney+ access.

And Apple TV+ set-top boxes also support the Disney+ app.

You can have up to seven profiles, streaming across up to four devices at the same time.
