As movie theaters get ready to screen Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the running time may have been revealed.
Before a running time is confirmed, a placeholder running time is usually given to theaters in order to give distributors an opportunity to plan their schedules accordingly for the debut of a major movie. In the case of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, some new listings indicate that it will top Star Wars: The Last Jedi as the longest film in the series, befitting of a grand finale to a long-running story.
According to a screengrab from Cinemark’s databases, one user was able to find out that the movie is currently expected to run 155 minutes, or 2 hours and 35 minutes. Check it out below:
If the running time listed here is indicative of the final product, then Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will top the 2 hour and 32 minute The Last Jedi as the longest movie in the series. It will also be significantly longer than director J. J. Abrams’ previous movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which ran at 2 hours and 15 minutes. While it’s not as long as the likes of Avengers: Endgame, such a running time gives the movie enough time to wrap up remaining plot threads and serve as a conclusion to the story of the Skywalker family.
Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher will also appear as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to hit theaters on December 20, 2019.
