If you’re a fan of both Star Wars and Fortnite, then you’re in luck this weekend, as there’s an exclusive showing of a brand new The Rise of Skywalker clip within the game.

You can also earn an amazing Star Wars themed glider as part of the event, and if you fancy dressing up for the occasion, a treasure trove of new Star Wars outfits, pickaxes, gliders, and emotes have been announced in the Fortnite Item Shop too.

The exclusive Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker clip will be shown in-game on Saturday 14 December at 19:00 UK time. However, the doors will open earlier at 18:30, so if you want to be absolutely sure of getting a spot at the screening, make sure to start playing nice and early so you don’t miss out.

Once the event gets underway, you can expect to see a brand new clip of the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker movie, plus a message from director J. J. Abrams too.

And as if an exclusive sneak peek at the new Star Wars film wasn’t exciting enough already, everyone who attends the screening will get a TIE Whisper Glider for free. You can take a look at it right here:


Where can I watch the Star Wars clip?

The clip will be showing at the Risky Reels drive-in, a spot on the map that’s located just to the left of Frenzy Farm and above the island in the centre of the map. If you’re not sure how to find it, we’ve marked the exact spot on the map below.

How do I watch the exclusive clip?

In the past, similar events have seen players warped into a new location (where weapons have been disabled so you can watch the clip in peace). While nothing’s been said for sure about exactly how the event will proceed this time, we’re expecting to see something similar.

In other words, that means all you have to do is turn up nice and early and wait for the show to begin!
