Star Wars fans went absolutely nuts after rumors began circulating online this week regarding Obi-Wan Kenobi's highly-anticipated finale. According to a new listing from Canadian theater chain Cineplex, Episode 6 is set to have a massive runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes, something that is totally unheard of with Disney+ shows.

The said rumor about the finale's film-esque runtime, which first went viral thanks to the StarWarsOnly Twitter page left a lot of folks excited, and rightfully so but apparently, it also comes with a huge catch.

To the fans hopeful we'll get close to two hours of Obi-Wan Kenobi content, we hate to break it to you. While it is indeed true that the Cineplex screening will run for 1 hour and 33 minutes, a good chunk of that runtime will be dedicated to a special Q&A session featuring a yet-to-be-announced panel.

Typically, Q&As last for more or less 30 minutes so it would be safe to assume that we'll only be getting a full hour for Episode 6 which quite frankly isn't too bad.

We're only days away from the finale episode of Star Wars' latest hit series and you can best believe that the entire fandom is ready to witness the "rematch of the century" between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader.

Of course, given the fact that we've already seen the original Star Wars trilogy, we already have an idea of what to expect with the finale but it's still going to be a good watch nonetheless.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is streaming exclusively on Disney+.
