New Scene From 'The Rise of Skywalker' To Debut In "Fortnite" Next Weekend

By: Dominic Jones

So far we've seen several trailers, countless TV spots, a couple of featurettes and one actual clip from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which hits theaters in two weeks.  And all of them have been released in relatively traditional ways (on TV, online, etc.), but Lucasfilm is trying something new as a way to release a new clip from the film.  It was announced today that a scene from The Rise of Skywalker would debut in the video game Fortnite, on December 14th at 2pm ET.

The announcement was made on the Fortnite Twitter account,

"The 'exclusive scene premiere' will be shown at Fortnite's Risky Reels drive-in on December 14. Posters have begun appearing in-game to let players know that doors open at 1.30pm EST and the show beginning at 2pm "with J.J. Abrams" whatever that means."

If you haven't seen the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker yet (or want to watch it again), you can do so below,

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th, 2019.  The film is directed by JJ Abrams, with a script by Abrams and Chris Terio, and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Joonas Suotamo, and Carrie Fisher.
