With the conclusion of the fabled "Skywalker Saga" set to arrive in two months time, fans of the galaxy far, far away can now get their hands on advance tickets for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
As of today, Oct. 21, tickets for the Rise of Skywalker can be purchased through Fandango, as well as through individual theater chains such as AMC and Cinemark. The film hits cinemas worldwide during the holiday season this December.
The Rise of Skywalker is not only the final entry in the ongoing sequel trilogy, but the final entry in the nine-film, mainline Star Wars saga. The "Skywalker Saga" began with the original Star Wars trilogy -- which ran from 1977 to 1983 -- and the prequel trilogy -- which ran from 1999 to 2005.
In addition to being the ninth film in the main saga, The Rise of Skywalker is also the 11th live-action Star Wars film to hit cinemas, including the anthology films Rogue One and Solo. Counting the 2008 animated feature Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which preceded the animated television series of the same name), it is the 12th theatrical Star Wars release overall.
The Rise of Skywalker is billed as the definitive end to the nine-film "Skywalker Saga." Set a year after the events of 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the film rejoins the trinity of Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron as the Resistance's war against Kylo Ren's First Order continues. Meanwhile, the ubiquitous conflict between the Jedi and the Sith comes to a conclusive head.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives on Dec. 20.
