Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is supposed to end the long series and it's expected to be a very long movie.

Now we have some indication that the film will be quite long, although this isn't an official confirmation yet.

John Williams is the composer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and he's started to score the movie already.

Don Williams (his brother) was interviewed by the Academy of Scoring Arts on YouTube and he indicated how much music has been composed for the movie so far.

In the interview, Mr Williams said that his brother has scored about 135 minutes worth of music so far.

Don Williams has listened to at least 34 minutes of the music already and it incorporates character themes for all 8 of the rest of the movies in the franchise.

135 minutes is usually the average length for a Star Wars film as most of them have been just over the 2 hour mark. Only Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the longest film in the series clocking in at over 152 minutes.

That being said, 135 minutes is not full confirmation for the length of the movie. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is still being edited so it could be shorter or longer than 135 minutes by the time the film comes out.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker releases on December 20th, 2019 in North America.
