Long ago, in a galaxy far far away, Disney+ became the home of the entire Star Wars franchise, with a massive catalogue of content spanning from A New Hope (1977), to The Rise of Skywalker (2019) and beyond. The franchise is also celebrating the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi (1983) this year.
From theatrical releases, animated classics like Star Wars: The Clone Wars, to new exclusive shows, everything in the Star Wars universe (with the exception of the wonderful train wreck known as the Star Wars Holiday Special) is available to stream now on Disney+. It’s also a great time to be a Star Wars fan if you want to delve deeper into the Extended Universe, as there are plenty of new films currently in development.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently announced a massive rollout of three new Star Wars titles at the most recent franchise celebration in Europe. Upcoming films include an as-yet-untitled project that will reportedly take place after the events of Rise of Skywalker, following Rey as she sets out to establish a new Jedi Order. Ms. Marvel‘s Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will direct the movie with a script from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.
There are two other films in the works — one will tell the story of the first Jedi, with James Mangold attached to direct. The other, directed by Dave Filoni, will center around the New Republic and close out the interconnected stories being told in The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and the upcoming Ahsoka, the limited series spinoff starring Rosario Dawson, reprising her guest-starring role from The Mandalorian.
Whether you’re looking forward to highly-anticipated new galactic adventures, or just want to relive the original films, we’ve created a guide for which Star Wars films and shows are available to stream online, what order to watch them in, and everything we know so far about new Star Wars content coming soon to Disney+.
How Can I Watch Disney+ Online Free?
If you want to get up to speed on the entire Skywalker Saga, or jump straight into the newest series, The Bad Batch online, it’s easy to sign up for a Disney+ subscription. Disney+ subscribers can watch the best Star Wars movies and shows on-demand from their TV, laptop, tablet, phone, or gaming console. You can also stream all the film trilogies with 4K HDR with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos on all supported devices for expanded color contrast and theater-quality sound.
A monthly subscription to Disney+ will get you all the content at just $7.99 a month with ads. For $10.99/month you can go add-free, or save yourself some cash when you sign up for a year-long plan instead at $109.99 (about a $23 discount).
One of the best streaming bundles available, though, is this deal that gets you Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ for just $19.99 a month. You can watch every Star Wars series all in one place, including Star Wars: The Clone Wars, plus new animated offerings like the recently-premiered The Bad Batch, Lego Star Wars shorts, and more.
If you’re looking to stream for free, you can get a free subscription to Disney+ as part of their “Disney+ on Us” deal. Verizon will throw in a six-month subscription to Disney+ with certain Verizon plans, including Start Unlimited, Get More Unlimited, Play More Unlimited and Do More Unlimited plans. Verizon customers who have the Get More Unlimited or Play More Unlimited plans can also get the Disney Bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu, and you can update your Verizon plan at any time online.
What Star Wars Movies Are Currently Available on Disney+?
You won’t have to go hopping around streaming services at lightspeed to be able to watch all your movies—every Star Wars film is currently streaming on Disney+, including the most recent release, Rise of Skywalker (2019). Note that we’ve put these in release order, but we also have a canonical timeline listed below.
- Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
- Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
- Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
- Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)

The best viewing order for the Star Wars films is highly debated, but we recommend going with the chronological timeline shown here. Besides live action, the only animated film in the franchise, Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), is also on Disney+ and serves as a prequel to the animated series of the same name. There are also two documentaries available to stream: Empire of Dreams: The Story of The Star Wars Trilogy (2004) about the making of the original trilogy, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: Adventure Awaits (2019) a behind-the-scenes look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland, and Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian (2020) a special on the creation of the Disney+ original series.
