Disney+ has made some slight changes to “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” that will reshape the way you watch the film.

Change 1: No more blue hue

Twitter user PalpyYT shared a screenshot that showed how “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” now has less of a blue hue compared to the original version of the film. The changes made everything in the film — which definitely had a blue tint to it during the first run of the movie — look a little more normal.

Change 2: Captions with Jedi voices

Yes, it’s official. Twitter user Jbandos pointed out that Disney+ added captions for all of the Jedi who speak to Rey during the final battle with Palpatine. We see names such as Anakin, Luminara, Aayla and Ahsoka pop up, replacing the previous names that had been there, including “Female Jedi 2” and “Female Jedi 3.”

Disney+ adds new ‘Star Wars’ art

Disney+ honored fans on Star Wars Day — or May the Fourth — by adding new fan art to its streaming service. People who used the Disney+ app could see fan concept art of the “Star Wars” universe.

In the past, Disney+ added original concept art of “Star Wars” to the films’ individual pages, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.
