The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in the saga of the same name will try to bring balance to the fanbase, while also closing out the first Star Wars trilogy from Disney. About a year and a half ago, many fans experienced a disturbance. That disturbance was Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, the film took a lightsaber and sliced the fan base in half.

J.J. Abrams will do his best to accomplish this, and as much as I dislike The Last Jedi, I sincerely hope J.J. can pull it off. Not much is known about the film, so far, just a single trailer has been released, and some photos, but today we get news of how long the film may be, and it’s from a pretty good source, Don Williams, brother of the creator of Star Wars’ classic themes, John Williams.

Don Williams attended the Academy of Scoring Arts Jurassic Park event, and talked about The Rise of Skywalker, which we all know his brother John is working on, but it appears as if Don has a hand in it as well. You can check out what he had to say below.

“135 minutes worth of music to write, so that kind of tells how long the film is. It is top to bottom music. We’ve done four days and we just scratched the surface. I think we’ve got something like 34 minutes in the canon at this point.”

So it would be just over two hours, but I don’t think any movie is “top to bottom” with music, not even musicals. This may mean that the film could be considerably longer than the 135 minutes mentioned, it could also mean some of the music won’t be used.

Well, we don’t know much about the film at all, why should the runtime be any different? One would think Disney would be dropping another trailer sometime soon, and give us at least a little peek into what’s going on. For me, and what I assume would be many of you as well, the run-time is one of the least important things about the film, most of us don’t care how long it is, as long as it’s good.
