The Rise of Skywalker Reported to be the Longest Star Wars Film Yet. As the conclusion to the Skywalker Saga approaches every detail we can muster is cause for excitement until the films release this December 20th. One such detail is the films run time which was revealed this week on Reddit via StarWarsLeaks.
According to the theater showing schedule Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will have a run time of 155 mins, or 2 hours and 35 mins, making it the longest Star Wars film to date.
It’s no wonder the film will require a longer run time than previous Star Wars films, given that Episode 9 will conclude the Skywalker Saga. The Skywalker Saga is compiled of Star Wars films Episodes 1-9. Other Star Wars films such as Rogue One and Solo are labeled specifically as “A Star Wars Story” and take place adjacent to the films in the Skywalker Saga.
The premise of the film is daunting and leaves fans wonder “How will this epic adventure end?”
“A year after the events of The Last Jedi, the remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again—all while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil. Meanwhile, the ancient conflict between the Jedi and the Sith reaches its climax, altogether bringing the Skywalker Saga to an end.”
Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker comes to theaters December 20, 2019. Are you excited for The Rise of Skywalker? How will the Skywalker Saga end? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
