A Nine-Movie 'Star Wars' Marathon Is Coming to Theaters

It has nearly been 50 years since Star Wars first hit the big screen. Since then, a total of nine films in the Skywalker Saga have released, with 2019's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as the most recent entry in the series.

While many fans are preparing to catch Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in theaters once again for its 25th anniversary, it has now been announced that all nine films in the Skywalker Saga will be returning to theaters for a special marathon showing for May the 4th -- Star Wars' annual celebration of the franchise. Showings are said to be taking place at just 13 theaters around the United States, with over 20 hours of Star Wars action being showcased -- from The Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker in chronological order.

For those looking to embark on the lengthy journey through all nine of Star Wars' Skywalker Saga films this May the 4th, select theaters are set to host marathons throughout the United States, visit Fandango for tickets and additional info. Ticket prices and amenities vary depending on location.
