Earlier reports suggesting that “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” would clock in at 155 minutes, making it the longest film in the saga, have proven premature.
The film’s director J.J. Abrams, speaking with EWLive on SiriusXM 109, has confirmed that work has now officially finished on the film and the movie’s final run-time clocks in at 141 minutes.
In a separate interview, he also revealed that one of the film’s actors left a script laying under their bed which got snatched up by some cleaners and put up for sale on eBay. Thankfully the producers got it back before it sold. You can see Abrams talking about that incident below.
“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” opens in cinemas on December 20th.
