Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 9 Map: What Changes Will Be Made To The Island?
Epic Games are expected to bring a festive edge to the Fortnite Island!With Season 8 well underway and players getting stuck into Epic Games' new content, it will have to come to an end at some time as the hugely successful battle royale series nears the Christmas period.
After the launch of its own entertainment division, rumours have been swirling that Epic Games is considering a Fortnite feature-length movie.
Reports suggest that the game developers are moving into the TV and movie business, with one of their first ideas being bringing their popular battle royale game to the big screens.
The evidence for a Fortnite movie is supported by the recent hire of three former top LucasFilm executives at Epic including former VP of physical production Jason McGatlin, who is leading the new entertainment division and was an executive producer for the recent Star Wars films under Disney as well as Lynn Bartsch and Chris Furia as head of business affairs and vice president of production finance respectively.

Since Fortnite’s story, map and style have evolved so much, it could be difficult to predict how the movie will play out, when it'll be set, and what it'll look like. It could either focus on the game’s entire span or specific characters from some point in the game – we will have to wait and see.
What is the release date for the Fortnite movie?
Since it’s very early days, there is no information on the release date and it might be a while before we get any concrete details about a potential Fortnite movie. For now, Fortnite is in Season 8 and in the middle of a Cube invasion.
