May the Fourth Disney+ Art
On May the Fourth, Disney+ will honor the artistry that began more than 40 years ago and continues with the dedicated concept artists at Lucasfilm today. In addition to the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, beginning May the Fourth the streaming service will add concept art to celebrate each chapter in the Skywalker saga and beyond.
Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May the Fourth to feature its original concept paintings. From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian, the updated art will feature work from celebrated artists such as the legendary Ralph McQuarrie and Academy Award-winning artist, author, and production designer, Doug Chiang.
On the Disney+ home screen, the animated Star Wars logo will also get an upgrade with a new animation that honors the hyperspace jump that transports us all to a galaxy far, far away.
