It seems like we finally know why the big screen at Risky Reels was being tested, get ready for something awesome!

A couple of weeks ago, players noticed that the Risky Reels screen was displaying coloured bars, a llama, and a timer. After nothing more came of this, it was assumed that this was Epic Games testing them out for later use.

More recently, data miners found changes to Plugins related to live streaming and begun to theorise that potentially something would be broadcast in-game. Last night, Twitter user @ZeCAMMO walked in on a test broadcast going down at Risky.

Well, now we know what this was all leading up to. And it’s big! It seems that Fortnite will be hosting an exclusive scene premiere from the new Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. This is scheduled for 2:00pm ET on December 14 and will of course take place at Risky Reels.

Brett “Dakotaz” Hoffman recently shared a screenshot of himself checking out the Risky screen, which displays the details of the upcoming event. Posters can be found around the map which also feature all the info on the Star Wars showing.

The short-lived crossover for the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order left Fortnite fans desperate for more, and speculating whether the new movie would bring them further collaboration. Luckily for us, it seems so, although it may not go any further than the scene premiere. This is certainly a real treat, but I’m sure players wouldn’t mind a couple more Star Wars themed skins to splash their V-Bucks on.
