The Cannes Film Festival has finally revealed how long Solo: A Star Wars Story will be when it launches worldwide in May.

It's not the longest Star Wars movie ever made, but it's on par with many of the recently released movies from the franchises.

The Cannes Film Festival has revealed that Solo: A Star Wars Story will have a duration of around 135 minutes.

The film is not expected to have any mid or post credit scenes so you can easily just exit the cinema once the credits roll.

The 135 minute duration makes the film the fifth longest Star Wars movie in history. The Last Jedi still remains the longest movie in the franchise running for a whopping 152 minutes long. 

After that Attack of the Clones clocked in at 142 minutes, Revenge of the Sith was 140 minutes, and then The Force Awakens was around 138 minutes.

Solo is longer than Rogue One, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Phantom Menace and Return of the Jedi.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will tell us the backstory of everyone's favorite Star Wars character Han Solo. Solo will be joined by other favorites such as Chewbacca and Lando Carlrissian just to name a few. 

The film will be released in North America on May 25th, 2018. It will be interesting to see if the film is still able to be successful after the polarizing reception The Last Jedi received when it came out last December.
