Fortnite will host exclusive Star Wars Rise of Skywalker scene at its in-game theater


Fortnite continues its run of Star Wars transmedia synergy with an exclusive broadcast of a scene from the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film from inside the battle royale shooter itself.

Saturday, December 14th, is the date, Risky Reels is the place, and 2:00 p.m. EST is the time for the exclusive footage reveal (Risky Reels, of course, is a drive-in theater inside the game). The event is also promising to feature J.J. Abrams himself, or at least perhaps a digital facsimile of him. Players are invited to head in early as Risky Reels will open its doors at 1:30 p.m. EST.

This isn’t the first time that Fortnite has been host to some unique live events. Readers will recall that DJ Marshmello held a live concert from Pleasant Park, with the claim of “millions” in attendance. Somehow, we expect that this scene broadcast will inch close to that mark as well, if not surpass it.
