Disney's Star Wars Movies Just Passed A Significant Milestone

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

One of the new LEGO sets based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 75201 First Order AT-ST, is exclusive to Argos in the UK. It was never expected to reach the heights of The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi was facing some genuine competition during that second week in the form of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman.

"The Last Jedi" has also topped the charts for the third weekend in a row. The film earned $230 in its first three days in foreign markets.

Star Wars is likely looking at some serious box office numbers for a few more years before that ceiling begins to level off. Disney-Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", its "Thor: Ragnarok" and Warner Bros.' "Wonder Woman" all took in more than $800 million each on a worldwide basis.

The Last Jedi won't open in China, the largest worldwide market, until January.

Still, it looks as though we're less than six months away from one of the biggest games in years hitting our consoles. We'll have to wait for Rockstar to confirm one way or another, which likely won't happen anytime soon.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is globally the fourth highest grossing movie of 2017.

In its third Friday in theaters, "The Last Jedi" added $19 million to bring its total to $483 million domestically.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi now has an 83.28 ComicBook.com Composite Score.

Walt Disney Studios has earned back the $4.06 billion cost to purchase Lucasfilm thanks to the new "Star Wars" films.

With strong word of mouth from both critics and audiences, the film is aimed at the sort of family audiences that "Star Wars" hopes to keep coming into the theaters as kids are out of school on winter break. Its sequel and the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX, will release in theaters on December 20, 2017. So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies.
