    J.J. Abrams has revealed that post-production for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is finished and the movie clocks in at 2 hours, 21 minutes. The director spoke to Good Morning America about finishing the conclusion to a forty-plus year saga.





    The video of the interview with Good Morning America can be found below, but we have extracted and included the quotes from Abrams talking about the process of making and completing this film, including its biggest challenge, the handling of Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia: bringing her to life on screen in a believable and honorable way.



    Finishing a movie 24 days before it opens doesn't sound ideal. But for J.J. Abrams, a perfectionist, working with the capital of having written and directed the highest (domestic) grossing film of all time (The Force Awakens) has earned the trust of Disney and fans alike.



    [​IMG]



    Abrams is as polished as it gets when it comes to saying a lot while giving very little. It seems as though most of his interviews come with the same quotes, as though he a pull-string toy with five rotating phrases. He talks about dealing with not only completing this trilogy, but the entire nine story arc of this epic saga.



    Abrams does eventually open up a bit, when it comes to Carrie Fisher. Perhaps the biggest challenge of all, was how to appropriately include and handle the late Fisher's Princess/General Leia Organa. This is a massive movie, with a lot of pressure on it to satisfyingly end the story started by George Lucas, yet Abrams admits handling Leia's role in this film was the biggest challenge all.



    [​IMG]



    While fans should perhaps temper expectations on how much of Leia we'll get in the movie, Abrams doesn't dance around the confidence in what they were able to achieve, saying Leia's scenes 'are really moving and it's impossible for me to believe she's not there.'





    The Rise of Skywalker's production didn't come without its share of concerning moments, specifically the fact that a copy of the script found its way into the wrong hands due to haphazard handling by one of the films (unnamed) actors who:


    While it appears no harm was done, you can't help but laugh in comparing it to the Empire searching for the stolen plans to the Death Star. They say life imitates art, but at least in this case the Empire recovered their plans in time.



    The Skywalker saga is complete, and the only thing left to do is absorb 400 TV spots and wait 24 days until The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 19.

    Not every Saga needs to Marvel it. It shouldn't be 3 hrs for the sake of it being the final film. If it tells the story there's no reason to add filler if it gets the point across.

    I think what this means is that there are still going to be a lot of "mystery box" loose ends after the film.

    I'm just considering that this is a saga that's over 40 years old, and is a huge pop culture icon.

    "Here ya go folks, a LONG one for the end..."

    yeah, i wouldn't want them to pad it out and i'm slightly glad for a reasonable runtime (no need for bathroom breaks at 2.5).
    but at the same time, i am going to miss the ST so dang much and i wish we would get as much of it as possible crammed in to as many hours possible just for selfish reasons. when the credits roll, i don't want this to be the last time we see Rey, Finn, Poe, and Ben on the big screen. : o (

    JJ said they finished yesterday. I would think he isnt even paying attention to credits so was thinking maybe he looked at the film and it ended at the 2:21 mark. Wont someone else add in the credits?

    The credits have probably been locked for weeks/months. Credits have legal and contractual obligations. JJ has probably known how long just the credits are for quite awhile. So when he knew the last scene ended... that running time, you would automatically add the credits to that time. It's important for theaters to know EXACTLY how long it is, and that includes credits. TFA's credits were 11 minutes. So you can estimate the movie is 2 hours 10 minutes minus credits.

    It probably wasn't up for very long as it was stolen property. Also they probably made those involved sign an NDA.

    The shorter the movie, the better. I don't even know why I have put so much energy into this for the past few month. Yes I am a grouch.

    Not the right film series, but this kinda sums up how I choose to feel about the running time:



    The space wizards won’t be back for too long, Cantina, nor will they go too quickly - they will be back precisely as long as they mean to.

    I mean, I’d be happy for 3+ hour Star Wars film if it worked to be that long (maybe one day we’ll get just that), but I’m ok with 2hr21m, that seems enough. Even though ... “I want more”!
