Director J.J. Abrams reveals the official runtime for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker which is shorter than originally reported and thought.
During an interview with EWLive on SiriusXM 109, Abrams revealed the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker runtime comes in at two hours and 21 minutes, which is 141 minutes.
