Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker scene ‘to premiere in Fortnite’

On December 14, 2020, LucasFilms is releasing a new, exclusive peek at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and there's only one place you'll be able to see it: Fortnite.

Fortnite is going to make the long wait for the next Star Wars just a little bit easier.

According to the posters, the event is set to kick off on December 14 at 1:30 p.m. ET, with the "show" starting at 2:00 p.m. ET.

The poster, first revealed near the location on December 7, also states that JJ Abrams will somehow be involved.

The news was announced via an image on the Fortnite Twitter account, which shows a poster that is appearing in the game now.

With Ben Solo's backstory being explored in the Rise of Kylo Ren limited comic series, and the character's redemption even teased in Rebecca Roanhorse's upcoming novel Star Wars: Resistance Reborn, Driver insists that Kylo has nothing to atone for. "You won't want to miss this".

If you're a Star Wars fan who doesn't play Fortnite, you've got a week to download the free-to-play battle royale and get involved. The clip was short and was playing on the Risky Reels screen when Ralph Breaks the Internet was released. If the Star Wars event is anything like other big-ticket in-game Fortnite events, combat will probably be turned off at the 1:30 p.m. ET start time. Do you like famous directors appearing in video games? Do you like Fortnite?

Recently, Epic Games added a Stormtrooper skin into the game, so expect a lot of troopers hanging around Risky Reels next week, waiting to see a clip from the new Star Wars film.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.
