Disney is all in for May the Fourth Be With You, otherwise known as the “Star Wars” fandom holiday that celebrates the iconic intergalactic franchise. May 4 kicks off the release of “Star Wars: Bad Batch,” which releases each Friday in May thereafter. The series follows experimental unit Clone Force 99, which was first introduced in the last season of “Star Wars: Clone Wars.” Made up of Hunter, Tech, Crosshair, Wrecker and Echo, the Bad Batch have a 100 percent mission success rate and must now decide on what their place is in the new order as the Republic transforms into the Galactic Empire.

Brand new episodes of “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” “Big Shot” and “High School Musical: The Series,” which has its Season 2 premiere on May 14, also release each Friday, bringing adolescent antics filled with top-notch competition and growing pains to the streamer. “The Mighty Ducks” sequel series kicked off at the end of March and will come to a close with its season finale on May 28.
