The upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi runtime is in, and needless to say, make sure you use the bathroom before you settle into your seat. The latest installment in the Star Wars movies will be the longest ever in franchise history – a whopping 150 minutes, or two and a half hours, with credits.
News of the movie’s runtime came from a press conference in Paris where Rian Johnson confirmed it. The 150-minute runtime had previously been listed at several theatres, but it was only when Johnson confirmed it that it was taken seriously. The large length of the movie should have fans jovial since this Star Wars has so much to resolve.
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith had previously held the record for the longest Star Wars movie at 140-minutes, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens close after at 124-minutes. Rian Johnson is quite happy with Disney as of late; especially since he’s looking forward to a brand new Star Wars trilogy separate from the Luke Skywalker Saga.
With the release date for Star Wars: The Last Jedi set for December 15th, it won’t be much longer until the world will get to witness the longest Star Wars movie in history. Knowing that this movie is going to be nothing short of greatness, fans should be excited with the longer runtime announcement.
