It looks like Star Wars fans are definitely going to have to sign up for a subscription to Disney's upcoming streaming site because it looks like the Mickey Mouse House is planning to drop all of its Star Wars entries in Disney+.

Though the Star Wars franchise has entanglements with other studios, Disney will soon gather all its Star Wars content and file them in Disney+, making the streaming site the center for material from the galaxy far, far away. Speaking in an interview during Disney's Investor Day (via ComicBook.com) Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy talks about the Star Wars franchise and plans to place it in the Mickey Mouse House's upcoming streaming service.


"It's remarkable to think that Episode IX will represent the culmination of what George Lucas began 40 years ago with the Skywalker saga," Kennedy said.

Addressing the audience, Kennedy said that characters from the films "populate a mythology that has impacted audiences throughout multiple generations."

According to Lucasfilm, Disney+ will be launching with the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and Star Wars spinoff movies like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story immediately under its roster. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will join the streaming site later while Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is going to make its SVOD debut on the service sometime after it premieres on the big screen.

Aside from Lucasfilm's Star Wars movies, the studio is also preparing exclusive material for Disney+ including Jon Favreau's upcoming Star Wars: The Mandalorian and the prequel to Rogue One starring Diego Luna's Cassian Andor.


Disney+ is set to launch on November 12 at $6.99 per month.
