Sky is getting ready for the upcoming Star Wars film the only way it knows how – it's signed up the rights to all six films in the franchise, along with additional features and programming.

To mark Sky Wars Day/May 4th, Sky Movies has been hosting a 48-hour Star Wars-athon, which allows viewers to watch all six films in episodic order, or in the order they were released.

Along with the movies, the channels are showing two animated Star Wars series: 'Star Wars Rebels' and 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'.

It's the first time all this content can be found in one place.

"I am delighted that we can offer the Star Wars saga to our customers," said Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies.

"As a huge fan of the saga, it gives me great personal pleasure to be able to offer my fellow fans a unique Star Wars experience. No one will do Star Wars like Sky Movies."

Dayna Donaldson, general manager, media distribution, Disney UK and Ireland, added: "The Star Wars saga is universally loved by fans for its rich storytelling and compelling characters and we're thrilled that Sky Movies customers will be able to enjoy it in the run up to 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' theatrical release at the end of the year.

"This will be without doubt this year's unmissable TV marathon."

The films and animated series are also available through Sky's Now TV service.
