Disney's Star Wars Movies Just Passed A Significant Milestone

01 January, 2018, 02:12 | Author: Miranda Cannon

The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi have earned over $4 billion combined.

In what should come as no surprise whatsoever, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is continuing to earn a lot of money.

In 2012, Disney bought Lucasfilm for the price tag of $4.06 billion. Led by Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" was the fourth biggest movie of the year, while "Spider-Man: Homecoming" rounded out the top five. Mark Hamill initially felt upset by the way the character was written as well, however, the Star Wars legend later on admitted that he realized that Luke's path was what The Last Jedi needed.

Fans have also defended Tran even citing notions such as white fragility, and others have called out fans on being unfair since they apparently only hate Rose and are taking it out on Tran. So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies.


The Star Wars legend, however, debunked the rumor, calling it "complete BS". It also had an all-time best domestic gross of $936.7 million. It is pacing 36 percent of ahead of last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Celebrities arrive on the red carpet to attend the premiere of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England. The movie made $1.056 billion worldwide. As of this writing, the sequel sits at over $914 million.

The latest installment also topped the box office for the third weekend in a row, despite still falling behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in sales. That number is set to rise, however, as the film is estimated to rake in $72 million over the course of the four-day weekend, which should up its domestic total to $537 million through Monday. That is the fifth largest opening in box office history. If you'd like to contribute, you can always see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is in theaters right now.
