With more Star Wars content to stream than ever before, we came up with a few creative ways to marathon Star Wars in one sitting for May the 4th.

Thanks to a gift from The Force via Disney’s marketing team, The Rise of Skywalker will be on Disney+ this upcoming May 4 (i.e. Star Wars Day). With the addition of the newest installment, every Star Wars film will be on Disney+ (aside from Solo which remains on Netflix until July 9).

That makes this the first Star Wars day with all Star Wars films available to stream. Of course, the catalog has become so extensive that it’s quite impossible to actually watch all of the films in one day. Below are a few different viewing options to help you celebrate May the 4th:

To celebrate redemption:

Star Wars wouldn’t be the mythos that it is without the incredible hero turned villain turned hero arc of Anakin Skywalker. If you’re in the mood to believe that redemption is possible, or if Darth Vader is simply you’re favorite character, relive his story with these movies.

  • Revenge of the Sith
  • Empire Strikes Back
  • Return of the Jedi
  • Bonus:  Rogue One

To face your destiny: 

Even in times of uncertainty, one has to find their place in the world and a way to help others. Luke Skywalker, the greatest Jedi of all time, may be the best person to teach us and remind us of this lesson. If you’re looking to feel inspired, face your destiny with Luke.

  • A New Hope
  • Return of the Jedi
  • The Last Jedi
  • Bonus:  The Empire Strikes Back

To honor the women of the Force: 

Of course, men aren’t the only Force-sensitive people in the galaxy. General Leia Organa and her padawan of sorts, Rey, are two of the many amazing women to commemorate on May the 4th. If you want to celebrate the awesome women in the Star Wars universe, this is your marathon.

  • A New Hope
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • The Last Jedi
  • Bonus:  The Rise of Skywalker

To have an adventure: 

Star Wars isn’t just about those who wield the force. It’s about the smugglers, swashbucklers, and gangsters, too. If you’d rather spend time on the Millennium Falcon than fighting with the Rebellion, have an adventure with Han.

  • Solo
  • A New Hope
  • The Force Awakens
  • Bonus: Empire Strikes Back

To keep hope alive:

It’s safe to say we’re living through an unprecedented time of uncertainty and fear. One of the things Star Wars does best is to teach both its characters and viewers to keep hope alive even in the face of despair and turmoil. If you need some hope, these films just may do the trick.

  • Rogue One
  • A New Hope
  • The Last Jedi
  • Bonus:  The Phantom Menace

To have fun:

Aside from its many themes and wonderful characters, Star Wars is downright fun. (Who doesn’t love an epic lightsaber fight or furry space creature?) If you want to simply have some fun, unwind and enjoy with these light-hearted flicks.

  • The Phantom Menace
  • Solo
  • The Force Awakens
  • Bonus:  Return of the Jedi
