Post-credits scenes aren’t exactly a new thing. However, Marvel Studios has certainly made a name for themselves with theirs. No longer is it easy to expect whether or not a film truly ends before those credits. Now, in many cases, there’s a stinger or two either embedded in the credits, or after all the credits have run.

In some cases, these scenes further the plot in the overall universe, and set things up for a film down the line, but in some cases, they’re fun jokes meant as a little something extra for patient fans. But will you need to stick around in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Based on the press screenings, you will not have to stick around. Once the movie is done, it’s done. However, if you are a big Star Wars fans, I recommend you at least stick around until the first-billed credits run (where the core cast and crew are credited). No, there won’t be another scene, but you’ll at least get to see the tribute title card to Carrie Fisher, which is accented by Princess Leia’s musical theme.

However, if you’re someone who’s only hungry for actual scenes, then you can pretty much roll once the credits begin.

    Actually thanks for letting us know. I think it’s a nice touch and I probably would have left (not expecting a post-credits).

    Jammer can I ask you one thing about the film: does it manage to explain somehow, someway, a natural “stage bow” for Princess Leia? I’m not talking spoiler specifics of course, I just wonder if they found a way in this film or else if we’ll have to wait for Episode IX?

      I would love to answer that, but I don’t think I can do so without spoiling. If you want, you can tweet me at @jamthewriter on Twitter and I can tell you there. I would just hate to take away from the experience of any readers who stumble onto this piece.

    I walked out of the IMAX theater and just then the crowd started to cheer and I assumed correctly that Carrie Fisher was honored..
