See Rise of Skywalker early by bingeing 27 hours of Star Wars

Go see nine Star Wars, why don’t ya?


If you really, really want to see the ninth mainline Star Wars film before everyone else, you’re in luck. AMC Theaters is offering a Star Wars marathon, showing all eight films before Rise of Skywalker, which means you can see Episode 9 a full HOUR before everyone else. That’s right, baby, you’ll be able to see just what happens to Rey, Finn, Poe, and the evil guy a full hour before the public.

The full marathon starts on Dec. 18 and will last 27 hours and 21 minutes. Relive Luke’s shapeless poncho, Anakin’s boy band hair, and Lando Calrissian’s ‘stache. See Jar Jar Binks, the Ewoks, and Chewbacca on the big screen! Return to iconic lines such as “No, I am your father” and “I love you/I know” and “Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design.

And after the first eight movies, Rise of Skywalker will begin to play at 5 p.m. local time, which the AMC website insists is a full hour before showings begin for those not committed enough to sit through 42 years of movies. Unfortunately, the marathon only includes the main Skywalker series — sorry Rogue One and Solo fans!

For those uncommitted to the full 27 hour, 21 minute marathon, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters on Dec. 20.
