The 'Episode IX' of the galactic franchise, with J.J. Abrams as director, premieres in cinemas on December 20.
On December 20 of this year, he arrives at the movie theaters Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Episode IX of the galactic franchise and closing of The Skywalker Saga. J.J. Abrams (The Force Awakens) gets back behind the cameras after Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) by Rian Johnson and now, four months before the premiere, we have a small clue about the possible duration of the film. In a recent interview, Don Williams, brother of the composer John Williams - who returns in this ninth installment - said that the next Star Wars will contain 135 minutes of music.
The first 'teaser' of The Rise of Skywalker was broadcast during the last Star Wars Celebration of April again with Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) as protagonists of the bright side and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the side of darkness. In the absence of information - Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams-, the words of percussionist Don Williams during an event of the Academy of Scoring Arts on the music of Jurassic Park (1993) are especially relevant.
"John has started with another [of] Star Wars," he said. "We have started last week. It has 135 minutes of music to write. That more or less tells you the duration of the movie [Laughs]. It's music from beginning to end. We've worked for four days. We've only scratched the surface. I think we have about 34 minutes right now. "
THEMES OF THE SAGA 'ESCONDIDOS'
Williams has also promised that Episode IX will be a worthy tribute to the entire saga. "I can tell you that each and every one of the songs you've heard is going to be in this latest creation. Everyone. Read. Yoda. [The threat] Ghost. Darth [Vader]. Everything. Everything will be there. And in his usual style, he hides them. You will have to look for them. You will find them, but you will have to look for them. "
On the duration of the franchise's deliveries, The Last Jedi remains the longest Star Wars title (152 minutes) followed by The Attack of the Clones (142 minutes). In The Ascent of Skywalker you will also find Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Keri Russell (Zorri Bliss), Richard E.
