      Making 1 billion at the box office isn't really a big achievement anymore, unless you're a film made 10+ years ago (The Dark Knight) or you had a host of things going against (Joker).
      Blockbusters need to get closer to 1.5 billion nowadays.

        i know she has a long history. but I don't think Disney will even see it as "she made up 1 billion on 4 movies each". I think they will see it as "we could of made another 500 million on each of these films and she lost that for us"

          One day Grace can you point the camera out your window? I don't know where you are filming, but the view looks amazing from what we can see

              Omg this is why I stopped watching after your review of TROS!
              The true fans love it a lot.
              What are you on about? Geez

                the prequels were much better than the sequels and added much more interesting characters. The dialogue was cringe but i can at least remember how everything happened. The sequels were just a mess. Kylo ren was the best part and he had some cringy moments too. Honestly, jon favrea saved starwars with the mandalorian.

                  This video is a fascinating loser talk.
                  Before the movie came out everyone was hoping for it to fail, to be a box office disaster.
                  Now it made 1 billion and the argument is "that's not enough it should have been more!!!"

                    It could hit over a billion but did it make money?
                    I'm hearing even if it hits a billion it still will lose money.

                        Richard Page Says logic. The finale of a good story (and not just.any story, but freaking Star Wars) should make more than the other movies. Otherwise the story wasn't good.

                        Richard Page Five. Force Awakens included. The first movie of this trilogy made 2 billion. The finale should be even higher than that.

                        The franchise has been damaged on K Kennedy's watch. How could there be no plan for an overall storyline for the franchise's tentpole trilogy? Madness, an absolute failure of leadership. A monkey could have been at the helm and made the money these movies made with the Star Wars brand. "Could have" because K Kennedy's legacy has poisoned the well. Disney has some serious firefighting to do.

                            The fact that the finale to the MCU is going to end up DOUBLING the finale to Star Wars at the box office is all you need to know. One of these things told a cohesive story over the course of 21 films that culminated in the 22nd film having meaningful payoffs, great themes, callbacks that were heartfelt and generally a worthwhile conclusion to the story. The other couldn't manage to tell a cohesive story over the course of 2 films resulting in the final 3rd film feeling like 2 movies jammed into one and no meaningful character progression, payoffs, or deep themes. Rise of Skywalker still might not hit $1 billion yet as well...

                              Mulan will fail not because it's a bad film but because the lead actress has made horrible statements supporting police brutality against the Hong Kong Freedom demonstrators.

                                I liked the movie a lot. Maybe this is because I hated last jedi so much and needed something, anything to get the sour after taste out. It wasnt perfect, but I thought it was very entertaining, and zombie palps was badass. At the end when he says "I will start the return of the sith!" has to be one of the coolest lines and scenes in all of star wars. It was just oozing with evilness and felt like a scene George would have loved, and the type of over the top drama that was missing from TFA and TLJ.

                                    It doesn't matter what we think or even what the math says (lol), but what the shareholders think. Even if the film profits, if it doesn't give as much money as the muda fukas want, then it's considered a flop. We've seem it happen many times already, those greedy bastards live in another reality.

                                      We didn't ask for good star wars or bad star wars all we asked for is just STAR WARS!!!!!!! Put these films in the hands of the fans we would get dog shit.

                                          Where can I get access to these movie numbers?
                                          Because if movie A makes a billion dollars and movie B also makes a billion dollars.

                                          But movie A has a budget of 55 million and movie B has a budget of 250 million. Then those billion dollars earned will have different meanings.

                                                        Well so the bulk of the money that comes from Star Wars movies are the toy sales. Also Disney was banking on these movies drawing audiences to their theme park.
                                                        Both the toy sales and theme park attendance is in the toilet. That’s why Kennedy will get the boot.

                                                          All I have to say is they should have kept the original EU; other than Rogue, the new movies are very disrespectful to the fans and to the story itself.

                                                          Two things:
                                                          1. It will make less than the first two of this trilogy.
                                                          2. Considering it's SW it should have cleared 2 billion.

                                                          So is a monumental flop.

I don't agree, he's a loudmouthed jerk to people and there is NO denying that. IF knives out made JOKER kind of money, then Ok, no problem. HE SHOULD STICK with small budget film's. F that guy. He is lucky there was a holiday, and he had a free disney pass thanks to kathleen kennedy. Half his cast was from disney stuff. He's a general audiences (not Fan based properties) dream. Consumable Garbage.

Disney clearly doesn’t know how to handle Star Wars in terms of story. And the character development, hated how they treated the characters from the original trilogy story-wise. Lousy.
