After weeks on controversy regarding how short Justice League is, it looks like moviegoers will not have to worry about that with the latest film in the Skywalker Saga’s runtime being confirmed.
During a press conference in Paris, Rian Johnson, the director of the upcoming film as well as the writer forthcoming trilogy, confirmed a time of 150 minutes (2 and a half hours) including credits.
This means The Last Jedi will be longer than the former front-runner for longest Star Wars film, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005), by about ten minutes.
Johnson was quick to sing the praises of the creative freedom he had during production of the upcoming blockbuster.
“Disney gave us a real freedom in writing. It was something very organic. For me, it was like when I worked on my old movies.”
