If you read May 4th and your first thought is, “May the 4th be with you,” then Sky’s planned 48-hour marathon is right up your alley. Sky will show the entire Star Wars catalogue on May 4th and 5th.
Unfortunately, that includes the less revered films too. On the bright side, we should be able to schedule naps.
Sky will broadcast the six core films, two animated Star Wars series - Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars - and a variety of specials and featurettes.
The films will run in both episodic and release order on May 4th and 5th. They will then be available to watch on Sky's Movies channel and On Demand services over the summer.
Everyone is looking forward to Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, which will be released on December 18th, 2015. Marathons like this should make the wait until Star Wars VII is released more bearable.
