Looks like we will have a Fortnite Star Wars event in Fortnite next week.
In one of Fortnite's recent updates, data miners leaked that Risky Reels will be changing. Risky Reels is currently clearing with many assuming that the block will return to replace it as it did in Chapter 1, but that does not seem to be the case.
A mesh was filtered for a pster from the recent v11.21 patch without textures for the pster. The pster can now be found throughout the map promoting the Star Wars live Fortnite event next week.

We have already had a small collaboration of Fortnite Star Wars for the launch of the game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order available in the Epic Games store. Players who bought the game at the Epic Games store received the Imperial Stormtrooper mask for free.
The mask was also available at Fortnite Item Shop for 1,500 V-Bucks. The Star Destroyer was also seen in the sky towards the west side of the map, but that was where the collaboration ended.

Epic has recently been testing an add-on called "Facial Animation System". Players can hear someone say "test 1, 2, 3". It seems that the test was for an upcoming Fortnite Star Wars event in Risky Reels.

ShiinaBR, a well-known data miner, leaked the Fortnite Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker pster a couple of hours ago. There is also a video playing on the screen of Risky Reels that confirms that the Fortnite Star Wars event includes an exclusive live premiere of Risky Reels.
The event will take place on Saturday, December 14 and the show is expected to begin at 2 p.m. ET.

The Risky Reels screen also featured Wreck It Ralph. The clip was short and was playing on the Risky Reels screen when Ralph Breaks the Internet was released.
We will have to wait and see what else comes from this event, but we will keep you informed with more news as we get closer to the Fortnite Star Wars event.
