Fortnite’s in-game drive-in theater, Risky Reels, will show a scene from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker next weekend, Dec. 14, six days before the space-opera blockbuster opens in theaters worldwide.
In-game theater posters are already advertising the screening, which begins at 1:30 p.m. EST next Saturday. The actual clip will be shown at 2 p.m., Epic Games and Disney are giving players 30 minutes to get to the theater and take a seat. Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams is expected to make an appearance, too.
Earlier this week, dataminers uncovered evidence of a special event, codenamed Galileo, taking place at the drive-in. Risky Reels has been a popular landing spot for Fortnite players, featuring rows of rusted-out cars staring at a blank movie screen. Most players should know where to find it, but if you don’t, it’s in located in the far northeast of Fortnite Battle Royale’s map.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in theaters on Dec. 20, and will close out a narrative arc spanning four decades and nine films.
