Here's The Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker Footage That Debuted Inside Fortnite
Risky Reels recently aired a new Star Wars Episode 9 scene.
New footage from the much-anticipated movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will premiere inside of the battle royale game Fortnite later this week. Epic Games has announced that director JJ Abrams will showcase new footage of the sci-fi blockbuster at the in-game outdoor theatre Risky Reels on Saturday, December 14. The Episode IX footage will debut at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET, and you'll need to log in to the game itself to be among the first to get a look at it.

As for what to expect, Disney is promising an "exclusive scene" from The Rise of Skywalker, but there are no further details available at this time. Epic added that Risky Reels opens its doors at 10:30 AM PT / 1:30 PM ET, so players can head in early to get a good seat.
This confirmation comes after players discovered posters for the Rise of Skywalker reveal in Fortnite at various locations across the map. The new Rise of Skywalker footage will undoubtedly get posted to YouTube very quickly, so you don't necessarily need to play Fortnite to check out the new movie content.
