Ninja will be streaming with Star Wars’ Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, this week to show off the new Rise of Skywalker update for Fortnite
The stream will take place on December 19, 2019, presumably hosted on Ninja’s Mixer channel, but the time and place has yet to be announced.
The announcement for the stream was made via a tweet from Mark Hamill’s Twitter account.

Fortnite started hosting its Star Wars event last weekend, which includes in-game cosmetics that tie into The Rise of Skywalker, which releases December 19. Players are able to get skins for Rey and Finn, or arm themselves with a lightsaber. There was even a clip from the upcoming film played at Risky Reels.
Fortnite isn’t the only game getting new content based on the new Star Wars film. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is getting new characters and locations from The Rise of Skywalker added to it today.
