Roundup: The Force Awakens’ running time and everything else we learned from EW’s big feature


My issue of Entertainment Weekly finally arrived, and I’m happy to report that we’ve already learned pretty much everything that’s in it regarding The Force Awakens from them online, save one: The final edit is locked, and it’s going to be two hours and 15 minutes long.

If you need to catch up, here’s our coverage of what EW’s put out this week:

→ Most everything from the main article gotten broken out, but Anthony Breznican’s interviews with Harrison Ford about Han and with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega get their own spreads in the magazine.

→ Don’t call her Princess: Leia Organa has a new title. And of course, there’s the inevitable talk of Luke Skywalker and why he’s been laying low in the publicity materials.

Rey on Jakku→ Perhaps the greatest wealth of The Force Awakens info can be found in the photo gallery. More on Rey’s speeder, jackets, Adam Driver’s lustrous hair, ladies in armor, First Order indoctrination, Bobbajo and more.

→ We learn the most about Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata since the character’s name was revealed way back in the spring.

Starkiller Base and General Hux get the spotlight – and it’s confirmed that Starkiller is indeed what we saw on the poster.

→ The big BB-8 gender question.

→ And, too late for press time I suspect, an interview with Anthony Daniels.

EW may be short on Kylo Ren, but remember he was the focus of EW’s last TFA cover story back in August… And we still have just over a month to go until the movie.
