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.
In the photo below you can see the newer versions (left side) compared to the older version (right side).
Did you know? The D+ version of The Rise of Skywalker has been updated, and was re colour balanced... it looks absolutely gorgeous.— Palpamemes (@PalpyYT) May 23, 2021

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.”
They also fixed the subtitles that the original theatrical and home release got wrong (note coloring off on the right in this case bc my laptop had night mode on) pic.twitter.com/7JRkfwYbar— Jaclyn: The Lesbian Jedi (@Jbandos) May 23, 2021
Disney+ adds new ‘Star Wars’ art
In the past, Disney+ added original concept art of “Star Wars” to the films’ individual pages, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.
