The latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker has officially passed $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Although the movie did not look well in the fans’ eyes, it managed to achieve financial success. Experts think that it will not be able to surpass The Last Jedi, but it could earn more in time.
After 24 days in theaters, the movie became the seventh Disney film to top $1 billion in 2019. On this basis, we also need to state that this has been a great year for Disney and the movie industry. According to CNBC, $481.3 million comes from the United States of America while $519.7 million comes from the international markets.
Next week, it will be one month after the release of the movie, so we will be able to deduce more about the movie’s performance. Looking from the fan’s perspective, the movie was a failure. End to the saga did not meet any of the expectations, providing the Star Wars fans with nothing but a broken heart.
In conclusion, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker managed to be successful at the box office, but not in the eyes of its fans. Although it seems unlikely for the movie to surpass The Last Jedi’s gross of $1.333 billion, we will have to wait for now.
