Runtime For The Rise of Skywalker Makes It Longest Star Wars Film Ever

Before the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker was released, there was a report that pegged the film as having an official 2 hour, 35 minute runtime. With the trailer now here and tickets currently on sale, the official runtime for Episode IX has been confirmed to indeed be this previously-stated length (155 minutes in total), making it the longest theatrical Star Wars film ever released.

The 2 hour, 35 minute runtime for The Rise of Skywalker just nudges past the previous Star Wars length record that was held by The Last Jedi by three minutes.
