Although fans initially speculated on May 4 as the true release, Disney + wanted to contradict them, now confirming that the film will be available starting May 25, 2022, the official day of “Star Wars” – in despite the frequent pun around May 4 (“May the 4th be with you”, where “4th” takes the place of “force”).
