Hello fellow Star Wars fans! This week is was able to round up two new rumors/spoilers for us!

The first is about the potential running time for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And the second is about an epic battle between our buddy Finn and a seriously badnews stormtrooper in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

As always…


Okay, you’ve been warned! Here we go…


1.) Rouge One: A Star Wars Story will have a running time of 133 minutes.


Okay so it’s not the hottest rumor out there but it’s still fun to know! According to Den of Geek (via Australia’s Event Cinema), there is a rumor floating around that Rogue One will be 133 minutes long, making it only slightly shorter than Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


We will definitely want to wait for official confirmation on this but I’m sure it’s at least relatively on point. – 2 hours and 13 minutes sounds like the right amount of time for this film. (Anyone thinking it will be LESS than two hours is kidding themselves.)


2.) Finn will battle The Executioner in Star Wars: Episode VIII.


This rumor comes from Making Star Wars. According to the site, Star Wars: Episode VIII will feature a fearsome stormtrooper called “The Executioner.” And The Executioner and Finn will have an epic battle. The rumor goes on to explain that this battle will be a pivotal scene for Finn because he will not have Han (and Chewy!) to save him, as he did in The Force Awakens.


I think this rumor could definitely be true and it does make sense that we will see Finn embrace his strength in new ways in Episode VIII. Not to say that Finn wasn’t a total badass in The Force Awakens, but he did spend a large chunk of the film trying to run from the First Order. So I’m excited to see him really committed to facing them head-on and owning his position of power in the next film.
