May 4th is a special day for many Star Wars fans because it is the official one Star Wars Day. Why it is like that? To do this, we just have to look at the English pronunciation of the date: “May, the fourth” sounds like the beginning of the Star Wars quote “May the Force be with you” (in German: “May the Force be with you”).
As in previous years, Disney + has some surprises for Star Wars Day. Overall, the streaming service released three new Star Wars projects, which are made up of a total of 15 small Star Wars episodes. We give you an overview of what you can look forward to.
Star Wars Day at Disney+: Visions Season 2 shows us Star Wars as we’ve never seen it before
The biggest highlight is the release of Season 2 of Star Wars: Visions. The anthology series tells a self-contained story in each episode that doesn’t take too seriously the Star Wars canon. Each episode also comes in one own animation style therefore. After nine anime studios were won for the first season, the extension brings more countries on board.

Finally, there is a new Star Wars episode from the Simpsons cosmos: Rogue not quite One.
