Star Wars 9 will not be the longest film in the series


     Only a few weeks separate us from the final of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Now that the final spurt has begun, new details about the film by director J. J. Abrams are published almost daily. He recently revealed that Star Wars 9 is not the longest part of the series.
    Star Wars: The Ascent of Skywalker ends a piece of cinema history. What started in 1977 ends 42 years later in a grand finale. This is staged by J. J. Abrams, who was already responsible for Star Wars: The Awakening of Power. Unlike the two predecessors, Star Wars 7 and 8, Snoke will no longer be the villain Rey and Co are dealing with, but a well-known villain. What has been suspected for some time has now been confirmed by Abrams. Emperor Palpatine will once again be the antagonist in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. How exactly Palpatine aka Darth Sidious survived his death in Star Wars 6 will not be seen until December when Star Wars 9 launches into the cinema.
    But in addition to content details are also more and more information about cinema presentation known. Thus, director Abrams recently dampened the hopes of many fans that the new film could be the longest of the franchise. An American movie chain had estimated the runtime at 155 minutes, which would have surpassed the previous leader, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Abrams now stated that the duration of Star Wars 9 would be about 142 minutes. Skywalker's ascent would still be among the longer Star Wars movies, but not the longest.
    Much more important than the running time, however, is to serve the long-standing and new fans a finale, which is worthy of such a long and exciting cinema era. Whether this is the case, we see from 18 December 2019, when Star Wars: The rise of Skywalker in German cinemas starts.
