Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be the longest film in the Star Wars franchise.
The latest instalment of the science fiction franchise has a confirmed run time of 150 minutes, which is 26 minutes longer than Star Wars: The Force Awakens and 10 minutes longer than Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith.
Director Rian Johnson said: “There was a real freedom in writing. It was something very organic. For me, it was like when I worked on my old movies.
“Walking up the ramp, walking through the hallway, I get flashbacks to when I was a kid with the action figures. Suddenly, I had a big lump in my throat. Just so happy. You know it gets you.”
“This is the first time shooting with Mark [Hamill], first time shooting with Daisy [Ridley], first time shooting a Star Wars movie and you know it’s some cool stuff,” Johnson added.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also feature John Boyega and Adam Driver. It will be the last outing for late actress Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.
