Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV premiere set for Starz

Posted on

Lucas Films Ltd.

The force will reawaken on TV this fall.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will premiere on Starz Sept. 10, the premium cable channel announced Friday. The record- breaking movie will air on all six Starz channels at 9 p.m. ET and will be available for download via the Starz mobile app on that day.

Starz gained the rights to the J.J. Abrams-directed movie under an existing deal it already had with Disney, which bought Lucasfilm in 2012.  During its theatrical run, Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought in $937.66 million domestically, making it the No. 1 film of all time in North America, not accounting for inflation.

Fans can return to a galaxy far, far away on Dec. 16, when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters. For all of EW’s Rogue One coverage, click here.
