The Last Jedi Is Set to be the Longest Star Wars Movie till Date

If you are following the developments related to Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, then you might already know that the movie has completed its post-production as we eagerly wait to see what the movie has to offer when it releases few months later. If the running time of the movie in different movie outlet to be believed, then the upcoming movie is set to become the longest Star Wars movie till date.

For a long time, fans have speculated that the movie can ultimately become three hours long due to the sheer amount of details the movie will need to cover following the events of The Force Awakens. And all of the major outlets such as Fandango, Cineplex and AMC have listed The Last Jedi as a movie clocking at 150 minutes. While not meeting the three hours speculation, the movie will become the longest movie in the franchise. For instance, Attack on the Clones was 142 minutes long. As all of the previous seven movies in the series were pretty much around the time limit of 130-135 minutes, 150 minutes shouldn’t be a surprise to fans.

However, all of the outlets have removed the runtime of the slot due to Lucasfilm’s reluctance to share any information related to the movie’s storyline. Thus far, the studio has managed to keep everything related to the movie away from public apart from information revealed by the trailers. Earlier this year, the studio released a trailer with a behind the scenes video appeared in summer. Most recently, Mark Hamill mentioned that we should watch Monday Night Football on October 9th which might be the date when we finally get to see another trailer of the movie. Given that we are just few days away from that day, we will have to wait and see to find out what the upcoming movie has to offer and if it will live up to massive expectations created by the studio.
