Disney's Star Wars Movies Just Passed A Significant Milestone

Disney's Star Wars Movies Just Passed A Significant Milestone”

On the last day of the calendar year, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" has surpassed "Beauty and the Beast" as the top grossing film in North America in 2017. It's only the third time that domestic revenue has crossed $11 billion.

In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. To this point, "The Last Jedi" is 23 percent ahead of the pace set by "Rogue One" after two weeks in theaters, and 30 percent behind that of "The Force Awakens". So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies. This is just par the course for Disney's new Star Wars movies, which have all been extremely successful commercially, and now, Star Wars has reached an impressive milestone. It also had an all-time best domestic gross of $936.7 million. The movie made $1.056 billion worldwide.
