As Disney released the final trailer for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker earlier today, tickets for the upcoming movie also went on sale in the US. While that is undoubtedly big news on its own, the bigger news here is that the official runtime for the movie has been revealed as a result.
According to AMC Theaters (where tickets for the movie have gone on sale), Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker will have a runtime of 155 minutes, or 2 hours and 35 minutes. That’s only three minutes longer than Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (which previously held the record for longest Star Wars movie).
However, as long as Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker, it’s still nowhere near as long as this year’s record-breaking blockbuster Avengers Endgame, which clocked in at 181 minutes, or 3 hours and 1 minute.
