Where will Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker be available to stream?


Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the last of the main franchise movies. At least, it is for now. Where will Star Wars: Episode IX be available to stream?

It’s the movie so many have been waiting for all year. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is now officially in theaters. Naturally, you want to be able to stream it in your own home. Where will Star Wars: Episode IX be available to stream?

Will you be able to watch on Netflix? How about Amazon Prime Video? There’s only going to be one place to stream Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for free in the future. It’s all about Disney Plus.

More from Disney Plus

Honestly, that shouldn’t be all that surprising. Disney owns the rights to the franchise, so of course the movies would head there.

The question for many is when Episode IX will head to Disney Plus. It’s not easy to give you an exact date. The Last Jedi is only heading to Disney Plus at the end of this month, a little more than two years since its release in theaters. Will we have to wait two years for The Rise of Skywalker to head to the streamer?

Probably not. The delay in The Last Jedi has been linked to the new streamer being released. With contracts running out and different licensing details, it took time for the second movie in the current trilogy to come to a streaming platform. The Rise of Skywalker is more likely to be available next year.

Of course, Disney could decide to delay the streaming with a membership. Most people are going to want to own this movie on DVD or Blu-ray and add it to their current movie collection. We could see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker only available on DVD and Blu-ray (and on Digital for those who prefer to purchase that way) for a couple of years to encourage sales.
