Is this the runtime for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?

Don Williams claimed that while his brother is just starting work on "The Rise of Skywalker", the score will include every notable "Star Wars" theme. We started our last week. Williams has indicated that this will be his last time scoring a Star Wars film.

Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker will release on December 20, 2019.

"It is top to bottom music", said Don Williams. Evidently, John Williams has 135 minutes' worth of music for the film (giving a hint at the movie's runtime), which features a plethora of references to past Star Wars themes.

So that's 2 hours and 15 minutes worth of music that John Williams is writing for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and it sounds like Don Williams is maybe performing with the orchestra on this one too. That makes sense since this is supposed to be the last full score that John Williams will write for a Star Wars movie.

Looking at each of the scores compared to the length of the film, it appears that there's usually roughly one hour less music than film footage. Furthermore, the score used in the film usually differs somewhat from a film's given soundtrack release.

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is notable for concluding the Skywalker Saga, but it may also serve as an extensive greatest-hits compilation for composer John Williams. "I think we've got something like 34 minutes in the canon at this point, but I can tell you that every theme that you ever heard is gonna be compiled into this last effort", Don Williams said.

Williams confirmed that themes for Leia and Yoda would be present in Rise of the Skywalker and also mentioned "the Phantom" and "Darth".

"It's gonna be in there and in his usual style", continued Don Williams.

"You'll be sitting there watching the film go by and 'Oh, there it is!' There's two bars of it and it grabs you and takes you away", Williams said, before admitting that he's regularly distracted when he hears a familiar theme while working on the score. You'll find them, but you gotta go look for them. Darth is a bit easier to figure out and most likely refers to "The Imperial March".

We've still got a long way to go before the Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker score is finalized, so the amount of music used in the movie could change.
