‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Runtime Is Shorter Than Expected

According to director J.J. Abrams, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will end up being approximately two hours and 21 minutes, making the movie possibly the second-longest film in the “Star Wars” franchise behind “The Last Jedi.”

Following his previous “Good Morning America” appearance where he confirmed that the final film in the Skywalker saga was finished, Abrams revealed the news in an interview with EWLive, backing his comments with “I believe” — so the time could still change by a few minutes depending on the length of the end-credits. Originally reported at two hours and 35 minutes, the film is still longer than “Revenge of the Sith” (140 minutes), but would likely battle it out for second against “Attack of the Clones” (142 minutes).

“The Rise of Skywalker” will premiere Dec. 20.
