This December Star Wars fans will be saying goodbye to the Skywalker Saga. But after waiting for this moment for over four decades some fans including myself might want to say goodbye by watching the STAR WARS Skywalker Saga straight through. And if they are near an AMC Theater, they will get that chance. That’s right AMC Theaters will be having a STAR WARS marathon in December and on top of that fans will be able to be some of the first to see STAR WARS: The Rise of Skywalker.


Skywalker Saga Marathon

Starting on Wednesday, December 18 STAR WARS fans will have an opportunity to attend AMC Theaters’ 27-hour and 21-minute STAR WARS marathon that will take fans up to the December 20th release of The Rise of Skywalker. With that time frame it looks as if some bathroom breaks have been scheduled so no need to wear depends. But not only will you have the pride and bragging rights of making it through this marathon, you will also receive a commemorative pin and blanket. And if that wasn’t enough on top of all that you will see the movie an hour before the rest of the public can.

Statement from AMC

“On Wednesday, December 18, ahead of its official opening on December 20, fans can be among the first to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker by attending Star Wars Marathon. Experience all nine Star Wars saga films in one epic day. Fans will receive a commemorative pin and blanket, and a concession offer. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will start at 5pm local time, one hour earlier than regular public show times.”
