Want to know what’s arriving on Disney Plus in May? You’re in the right place. Below, we’ve rounded up every single new TV show, movie, and documentary heading to the House of Mouse’s streaming service, including cartoon classics, and several momentous trips to a galaxy far, far away.

Yep, that’s right: Disney Plus in May is full to the brim with Star Wars.
