Every film in the Skywalker Saga is now on Disney+! Until recently, if you wanted to watch the main films in the Star Wars franchise, you could watch the first seven on Disney+ but then had to watch The Last Jedi on Netflix. Well, The Last Jedi has finally left Netflix and is now available to stream on Disney+.
Disney previously had a deal with Netflix to stream its new releases, including Marvel and Star Wars films. That deal ended at the beginning of 2019, but everything released by Disney studios through 2018 was given a streaming window on Netflix following its home release. Now that Disney+ has launched, and those previous streaming contracts are starting to expire, those movies are making their way to the service from Netflix. The only Star Wars movie still streaming on Netflix is Solo: A Star Wars Story.
One great benefit of The Last Jedi being available on Disney+ is the ability to watch some of the film’s special features. Disney+ has extras for every Star Wars movie on the service that you couldn’t see on Netflix since Netflix doesn’t own the movies.
There are several deleted scenes from The Last Jedi you can see on Disney+, all with commentary from writer/director Rian Johnson. There is also a feature commentary track from Johnson, along with a “score only” version of the film, which doesn’t feature any sound other than the score from composer John Williams.
Will you be watching The Last Jedi and some of the extra content on Disney+?
