Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be here before we know it, and it is set to clock in with a runtime of just over two and a half hours in length making it the longest Star Wars movie thus far. The film’s director, Rian Johnson, spoke with Collider and talked about how the original cut was much longer:
“We had a long movie from the start. It was well over three hours, the first cut… It’s much better at two and a half [hours] than it was at over three, but it was a cut I had put together, is where we started. And it was over three hours.”
While most of us will take all the Star Wars we can get, I think we can agree a cohesive story is what we fans want most of all, regardless of length. Johnson had to have made some tough cuts to reduce the film down to its official length, hopefully a good portion of the unused scenes will find their way to the Blu-Ray.
The Last Jedi has managed to avoid any major issues, unlike the other Disney Star Wars films. The news that Johnson will be heading up an all new trilogy bodes extremely well for The Last Jedi, as Disney must really like what Johnson did with the film.
