It’s not yet been officially confirmed by Disney Plus or Lucasfilm, but Tech Radar are claiming that Droids will land on Disney Plus UK Friday 18th June, the same day the 8th episode of The Bad Batch hits the streamer.
Lucasfilm did state that Droids would be coming at some point, but as it stands it appears the show will hit Disney Plus in the UK before anywhere else.
Disney Plus got a whole host of classic Star Wars shows back in April, like the 2D Clone Wars animated series and the eyebrow-raising Ewoks TV movies. Subscribers missed out on one old show, though – Star Wars: Droids, the ’80s animated kids’ show that featured Anthony Daniels reprising his role as C-3PO.
Now, Disney Plus is rectifying that in the UK, with the latest release newsletter confirming that the series is arriving on the service on June 18. Since it’s listed as seasons 1 and 2, we’re going to assume that means all 13 episodes of the original series and the concluding special are coming at once.
Notably, it’s not scheduled to release in the US next month – though Lucasfilm did confirm that the show was planned to release on Disney Plus “later this year”, which could mean that different territories get it at different times.
Droids was released on DVD by Lucasfilm back in the pre-Disney days of Star Wars, but it’s been hard to get hold of for a while.
Fingers crossed this is accurate, Droids was a joy back in the day and to see it on Disney Plus would be a welcome addition indeed.
