SKY TV has announced that it will be showing all of the six Star Wars movies in the UK from today, and to celebrate Star Wars days, Sky will show a 48 hour marathon of the movies starting today.
The Sky Star Wars marathon starts today, May the 4th and the movies will be shown today and tomorrow, as well as special Lucasfilm featurettes and specials on Sky Movies.
This marks the first time this Star Wars content will be broadcast all in one place. It offers Star Wars fans an unrivalled opportunity to experience the films via Sky Movies’ comprehensive movie service. Non Sky customers will also be able to enjoy the Star Wars content through Sky Movies NOW TV.
“I am delighted that we can offer the Star Wars saga to our customers,” comments Ian Lewis, Director 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.”
