‘Star Wars’ Surpasses $4 Billion In Ticket Sales
Five years ago, Disney bought the entire Star Wars franchise from Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, and now that investment has paid off.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has collectively brought in $4.05 billion, validating the purchase.
The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, grossed $2.07 billion worldwide after its December 2015 debut, while Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One earned $1.06 billion. Now Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, which earned an additional $42.1 million from Thursday screenings, has now reached a global total of $934.2 million.
Disney still plans for more Star Wars movies, including Solo: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: Episode IX.
