OSN to premiere Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this weekend

Whether you’re looking to revisit the galaxy far, far away or have yet to watch the final instalment of the Skywalker saga, Star Wars fans are in for a treat this weekend.

OSN is set to exclusively premiere Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Episode IX), the final chapter in the now four-decade long saga. It’s certainly was a long time ago…

Kicking off on OSN Movies First at 10pm on Friday August 28, the story reunites us with our friends Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) as they lead the Resistance to see off the threat of The First Order and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

There are plenty of surprises in store, and the Oscar-nominated movie grossed over $1 billion in the box-office worldwide for a good reason. Get the popcorn ready.

Missed it? Don’t fret, as it will be on the OSN streaming app on Saturday August 29 onwards.

“We’re delighted that the highly-anticipated ninth and final instalment in the Skywalker saga will be joining our new and exclusive content line-up this month,” said Interim chief content officer at OSN Rolla Karam.

“We pride ourselves on showcasing some of the biggest Hollywood film franchises so this will be a fantastic addition to our growing catalogue, and we’re confident that OSN subscribers will be overjoyed to reconnect with some of their favourite Star Wars characters.”

The OSN streaming app also has The Mandalorian, Solo: A Star Wars Story and the 3D animated series Star Wars: Resistance if you’re after more.
