TAB 200316 Rise of Skywalker-1584345384503

Disney’s ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ has made a surprise early hit at many digital channels, days before the originally scheduled date of release.

The space opera was supposed to be released on Tuesday, March 17. Instead, the final Skywalker Saga became available late Friday, March 13, in most digital stores, reported Deadline.

The move has been spurred by the spreading coronavirus pandemic, as millions of people are staying at home amid the crisis.

Earlier on Friday, Disney also has announced that ‘Frozen 2’ would hit the Disney Plus service in the US on Sunday — three months early to the scheduled release date.
