Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Is The Longest Star Wars Movie Ever

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the final entry in the Skywalker Saga that began in 1977. It's expected to close the book on some storylines from throughout the franchise, and it's now seemingly confirmed that the film has a super-sized length.

AMC Theatres has revealed that the film has a runtime of 155 minutes, which makes it the longest movie in the entire space opera series, according to IGN. The 1977 original, A New Hope, was the shortest of the main series at 121 minutes, while The Last Jedi was previously the longest at 152 minutes. 2008's animated movie The Clone Wars was only 98 minutes.

The Rise of Skywalker will be one of the longest mainstream blockbusters ever, but it won't hold that record. Avengers: Endgame, which like The Rise of Skywalker, was the final entry in a saga, clocked in at 181 minutes.

In other news, advance tickets for The Rise of Skywalker are on sale now. One ticket-seller, Atom, reported that Episode IX sold more tickets within the first hour than Avengers: Endgame to set a new record for the platform.

The tickets went on sale on October 21 alongside the release of a brand-new trailer. This video, which is said to be the "final" trailer before release, revealed a first look at Dominic Monaghan's character, teased more of Palpatine, and showed some heart-breaking C-3PO dialogue. A new poster has also been released; check it out below.

Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Trailer Reveals First Look At Lord Of The Rings Actor’s Character

Lost and The Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan has a role in the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We still don't know who specifically he plays, but the new Episode IX trailer has provided a first look at his character.

Monaghan appears to be playing a resistance fighter. He can be seen in the trailer standing behind Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico. This appears to be a tense moment when people are scrambling to prepare for battle.

Monaghan played Charlie Pace in Lost, which was co-created by Rise of Skywalker director JJ Abrams. This is the first time Monaghan and Abrams have worked together since.

Monaghan is also known for his portrayal of Merry in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings series. He's done work for video games as well, as he played William Joyce in the video game/TV show hybrid Quantum Break from Control and Alan Wake developer Remedy.

Monaghan is not the only newcomer joining the cast in Rise of Skywalker. The Americans actress Keri Russell plays the mysterious Zorii Bliss, who is "very cool and a little bit shady."

In addition to the new trailer, Disney released a new poster for the movie, which you can check out below.

New Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer Gives Us More Emperor Palpatine

In a galaxy very, very close to home, people who were watching American football were treated to the battle between the light and the dark side in the latest trailer for Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker.

During halftime of Monday Night Football, the new video debuted, which you can see below. The trailer sees the return of many familiar faces--some of which haven't been included in the latest Star Wars trilogy until this film, like Lando Calrissian and Sheev Palpatine. There's also a sense of finality throughout the trailer, with both Luke and Leia saying goodbye to Rey, C-3PO taking one last look at his friends, and the words "the saga will end" popping up at 1:44. If the new trailer has you excited, you can buy tickets to Rise of Skywalker right now.

It's been a relatively quiet couple of months for the latest Star Wars outing. The last time fans saw any new footage was back in August at D23. We also learned a bit more about Kerri Russell's part in the film as Zorri Bliss.

That wasn't the only Episode 9 reveal during the evening. We also got a look at a new poster for the movie, which you can check out below.

One thing Star Wars fans are extremely excited about is that they'll finally learn more about the Knights of Ren, a group we saw very briefly back in Force Awakens. Episode 9 stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Mark Hamill as Luke, and Billy Dee Williams as Lando.

Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.

For more stories set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, check out our final preview impressions of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The upcoming Star Wars game takes place between Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One, putting you in the boots of Cal Kestis, whose mission to bring back the Jedi Order is impeded by the efforts of the growing Galactic Empire and their dangerous Jedi-killing Imperial Inquisitors, like the Second Sister.
