News From Around the Galaxy 10/17/19
A possible run time for the Rise of Skywalker has been revealed. We get a new look at Kerri Russell’s Zorri Bliss. Pre-sale for Episode IX less than a week away. Writer Tony Gilroy joins the Cassian Andor series and more.
Disney+’s upcoming Star Wars series, Cassian Andor, has pegged Rogue One writer and re-shoot Director Tony Gilroy to write the premier and direct multiple episodes in the first season.
This should come as no surprise after the success of Rogue One.
Where is the Trailer?
We all thought it would be released on 10/14/19. As the day came and went the rumors began to pour out that it would be the following Monday 10/21/19.
At this point there is no confirmation but, You Tuber Grace Randolph believes we will see a 20 sec tease this weekend with the Trailer dropping Monday.
We shall see!
I’m hearing there will be a 20 sec preview of the new #StarWars trailer on Saturday and then the FULL trailer on Monday as anticipated, the latter which I will cover in full!#TheRiseOfSkywalker pic.twitter.com/85nxPx5SgB— Grace Randolph (@GraceRandolph) October 17, 2019
Tickets to go on Sale for Episode IX Monday 10/21/19
With the rumors of The Rise of Skywalker trailer dropping on 10/21/19 it is no surprise that tickets will go on sale the same day, just prior to or right after the trailer’s release.
Fandango, in preparation for the mad rush of ticket buyers, has set up placeholder pages for the ticket release of The Rise of Skywalker.
Hopefully this allows everything to run smooth and we will not see systems crashing as we have in the past with big film events.
Run time revealed for The Rise of Skywalker?
A Reddit user that goes by HopeLivesInTheGalaxy posted in the Star Wars Leaks on Reddit this image with no explanation.
If we are to take this as real it would mean The Rise of Skywalker will be the longest film in the franchise running at 155 minutes (2 hours 35 minutes). Three minutes longer than The Last Jedi.
What we know about Zorri Bliss
Kerri Russel talked with Entertainment Weekly about her new character Zorri Bliss from The Rise of Skywalker.
“She has a little bit of a checkered past and maybe some questionable morals, but she’s really an old friend of Poe’s. I think the entrance of Zorri is there to describe more of who he was, y’know, in a very intimate way and a familiar way, and the friends are sort of like, ‘What do you mean, you know him?’
Vague yet, interesting. What do you think, are you excited and interested to see Zorri Bliss in The Rise of Skywalker?
