The trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker was released earlier this week, and it kind of broke the internet. Well, since the trailer was released we’ve now learnt how the long the movie will be and it’s going to be a long one.
J.J. Abrams’ movie is said to be 155 minutes long (2 hours and 35 minutes) which is a pretty long movie, but given it’s the final film in this new Star Wars trilogy it makes sense.
A lot is going to happen in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker and they should be allowed to take as long as they wish with the movie, especially since it’s probably going to end in a big duel between Kylo Ren and Rey on one side, and Palpatine on the other.
I for one cannot wait to see this final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy and find out how it’s all going to end for our latest Star Wars heroes.
I’m especially interested to see what happens to Kylo Ren and whether he does end up turning to the Light Side of the Force and having a redemptive story arc after all.
Will Kylo Ren turn to the Light Side of the Force in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker?
That said, I’ll never be able to fully forgive him for having killed Han Solo, his own father, in cold blood. That scene still haunts me to this day.
Moreover, I’m really excited to see how Matt Smith features in this movie, and whether he’s going to be in it at all.
He’s been on and off the film’s cast list for a while now, and there are rumours that he could be playing someone close to the Emperor, which would be interesting to see.
I wrote a feature on whether he could be playing Ezra Bridger, but I’m now leaning more towards the possibility that he’s actually going to be playing Grand Admiral Thrawn, who you might be familiar with from the Star Wars Rebels TV show and the recent Thrawn novels.
