Video-streaming services have plenty of binge-worthy options for adults; for the kids, your Disney+ account is probably getting a workout during the coronavirus quarantine. Disney+ has plenty of options in May, including many Star Wars-focused offerings for May the 4th, aka Star Wars Day. Read on for some highlights and the full list below.

Prop Culture (May 1)

From a magical closet to umbrellas that help you take flight, the props in Disney movies are sometimes just as iconic as their characters. In Prop Culture, film historian and prop collector Dan Lanigan takes an inside look at items used on the sets of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mary Poppins, The Muppet Movie, Tron, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and more. A few of the movies stars pop up to reminisce, too. All eight episodes arrive on May 1.

Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian (May 4)

Just in time for Stars Wars Day, this eight-episode documentary gives fans of The Mandalorian an inside look at the series via behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and a roundtable conversations hosted by Jon Favreau, an executive producer on the show. Episode one lands May 4, and a new one will be posted every Friday.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (May 4)

Of course, the biggest draw of May the 4th will likely be the streaming debut of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It arrives on Disney+ two months early, according to Disney, meaning, "For the first time ever, fans will be able to stream the complete Skywalker saga all in one place."
