Oh man! Can you believe it's already November and we are a month away from the release of The Force Awakens? I can believe it! And I can't wait to see so many new characters that are involved in the First Order and the new rebel alliance. I was reading last night that the run time for the movie has been revealed. After the score for the movie was finished, Lucasfilm revealed the run time for the movie. A while back in other articles that said the movie would clock in at 136 minutes. And between the opening crawl and the rumored post-credits scene teasing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you'll probably wind u sticking around for every last second.
135 minutes places The Force Awakens roughly in the middle of the franchise as far as length goes. A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are the shortest three, in ascending order, running 121 minutes, 124 minutes, and 131 minutes. Then the list goes The Phantom Menace at 133 minutes, and prequel finale Revenge of the Sith at 140, which leaves Episode 2: Attack of the Clones as the longest chapter in the saga at a whopping 142 minutes. I actually anticipated we’d get a much longer movie.
So, with the runtime revealed what do you think will JJ have in store for us? Force Awakens hits December 18th.
