There’s good news for “Star Wars” fans as video-streaming service iflix announces that its subscribers in Thailand can experience the magic of the Force from the very beginning.



The first six instalments of the global phenomenon and epic space opera franchise are now available to stream and all of them are Thai subtitled and Thai dubbed.

Perfect for binge watching, punters can now watch “The Phantom Menace”, “Attack of the Clones”, “Revenge of the Sith”, “A New Hope”, “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”, with Episode VII, “ The Force Awakens” set to be screened on iflix next year,

The movie saga, first shown on May 25, 1977 with Episode IV “A New Hope”, changed the face of cinema forever. An instant classic and an unparalleled box office success, the rousing “space opera” is equal parts fairy tale, western, 1930s serial and special effects extravaganza, with roots in mythologies from cultures around the world. From the mind of visionary writer/director George Lucas, the epic space fantasy introduced the mystical Force into the cultural vocabulary and it continues to grow, its lush universe ever-expanding through film, television, publishing, video games and more.

“Star Wars is the world’s most iconic and significant film series of all time. The incredible characters, worlds, and legends envisioned by George Lucas excite, enthral and inspire audiences of all ages and generations around the world. We are thrilled to share the Star Wars canon with fans in Thailand. At iflix, we are committed to delivering the best entertainment experience, completely on the users’ terms. The addition of Star Wars to our extensive library is a testament to that promise,” says iflix group chief content officer, Sean Carey.
