But nothing can dampen the spirits of Star Wars fans, so here’s a list of 10 things you can do to celebrate Star Wars Day 2020 from the comfort of your home. Don’t forget to dress up in your favourite Star Wars tee or costume while you’re at it.

Finally, the moment fans of the Star Wars franchise have all been waiting for — the entire Skywalker Saga will be available to stream on Disney+ when The Rise of Skywalker joins the streamer’s catalogue on May the 4th! Star Wars fans in countries where Disney+ is currently unavailable can catch the series through a VPN service.
No time to binge-watch the entire saga in one sitting? Then how about watching all 9 episodes simultaneously, in one tiled YouTube video, in 1080p. With a runtime of 2 hours and 24 minutes, you should be done before lunch on May the 4th. Just be sure to watch it in the living room on a decent sized TV.
Go eco-friendly with a limited-edition Star Wars One-Push Tumbler from Thermos, the pioneer in developing innovative vacuum-insulated lifestyle products.

The season finale of The Clone Wars will be moved ahead from its original premiere date of 8 May to be aired on Disney+ on May the 4th! Star Wars fans in countries where Disney+ is currently unavailable can catch the series through a VPN service.
The eight-part series, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian acts as a deep dive into the first season of The Mandalorian, with each episode focusing on a different aspect, from behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen clips to roundtable interviews. What makes this particularly interesting would be the team’s experience in working with the lack of CGI technology – a common feature in most genre titles nowadays – and exploration of their entire filming process.
From 30 April to 6 May, players can unlock the highly anticipated character, the Mandalorian! And there’s more, the cult classic RPG PC game from 2003, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is on 50% OFF from 30 April to 4 May. It has not been slimmed down in any way, so players can experience what the galaxy looked like 4,000 years before the Empire rose to power.
BONUS #2! Make Star Wars-themed Food!
With more time at home, cooking seems to be the new norm. Mando cookies, Yoda pancakes or Darth Maul quinoa salad anyone?
