Star Wars VII Running Time Revealed

We can't really quite believe that the running time of a film is that newsworthy but, hey, this is Star Wars right? We're entitled to be ludicrously excited about every little drip of information ahead of 17 December.

Following The Nerd is reporting information from a 'trusted source' that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will have a running time of 136 minutes and will also receive a UK 12A certificate. They are "100 per cent certain this info is good". Well, we like to trust people, so we're going with it.

If you're wondering how this compares to the previous six in the franchise, well, you're in luck:

  • Episode IV: A New Hope – 121 minutes
  • Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back – 124 minutes
  • Episode VI: Return of the Jedi – 131 minutes
  • Episode I: The Phantom Menace – 133 minutes
  • Episode II: Attack of the Clones – 142 minutes
  • Episode III: Revenge of the Sith – 140 minutes

So if this turns out to be accurate, it'll be the third longest film of the whole franchise. Is that good? Well, it depends if the film is any good really, doesn't it? Over to you JJ...
