  1. WOW, we are getting The Rise of Skywalker on Disney+ in New Zealand on May 4th. Very exciting 🙂

  2. Thanks, Trevor. I see it’s going to stream on Disney+ two months earlier than planned. Variety reports the “Star Wars Day” debut will allow fans to “stream all nine films in George Lucas’s Skywalker saga all in one place. Other content Disney Plus has teed up for May the 4th are eight-episode docuseries Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and the series finale of the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”

  3. Also The Last Jedi is being added to Disney+ on May 1st in New Zealand. Feeling very excited 🙂

  4. May the 4th be with you Trevor.
