Yes and no. 

Being serious for a moment...

There's no doubt that RoS was a sub-par ending to the trilogy. But the first two films did very well and were very well received. There's always been a very vocal Star Wars minority that don't like anything post RotJ, they've just gotten easier to hear/harder to avoid with the rise of the internet and Youtube.

But Star Wars isn't just its movies. Disney has also had three very well received original TV shows (not including all the Lego spin offs), made the extremely popular decision to bring back Clone Wars, and is planning two further live action TV shows. Thats before we get in to their successful and well-written series of books etc.

Certainly I hope that after a couple of years off they deliver a more consistent experience with some mainline films, but generally speaking Disney has done a good job with Star Wars.

Had a good laugh @bolded.  If your film is so well received and performs the way you wanted it to, you don't retcon it in the very next film in a vain attempt to bring back those fans you lost.  Disney's actions and the performance of ROS, and SW merch in general, proves that it was no small minority, like many of you wish to believe it was.

Epic box office returns and great scores on all aggregators. But sure, you got me there buddy.

For TFA, sure.  TLJ?  Far from "epic." LOL.



It does amuse me that Knives Out did better than Rise of the Skywalker this weekend. Don't know how people like thismeintiel who's personal identity rests on hating on things like Star Wars and Rian Johnson will process, but it is an amusing coda.



Knives out? Who gives a shit about that movie anyways. I doubt that user will care since Rots made over a billion and 750M+ more than Knives out. All your comment does is make you look salty and trying to belittle a user and stir up shit. Pathetic post.

Exactly.  Don't really care about Knives Out, though I did hear it was a good film.  And I actually liked Looper.  Just keep him away from SW.

Really these people are just as salty as Rian Johnson himself was about legit criticism of his SW movie.  Their theories of an extremely small minority, who mainly hated on TLJ because they hate women and/or minorities, despite the constant examples of disliking the film for many other reasons, has been dashed to pieces.  They thought ROS was going to perform better than TLJ based on previous SW trilogies, because people were greatly anticipating the continuation of TLJ. 

Some choose to remain silent.  Others choose to attack the messenger/s.  Still others choose to make up insane theories that if the film had released just 7 days earlier, it would have easily beat TLJ, meaning an extra $400M+ WW.

What were the expectations of both movies? What was the return on investment on them? 

RoS buried a franchise KO started one, so I guess by those metrics KO did way better

Me salty?  That dude is nothing but salt whose mental health is reliant on hating on things.

Fairly sure I accused no one of hating the films because of misogamy or bigotry.  That's for the other end of the of the toxic fanbase.

You just hate in order to hate.  Congratulations on being part of a club.



ROS made $1.39M in its 9th weekend. This is 7.3% below RO's $1.5M for the same weekend. Currently, ROS sits at $512.9M at the DBO. This is 2.7% below RO's $527.2M for the same point in time. If this continues, ROS will end up with $517.8M vs RO's $532.2M.

There really hasn't been an update on its FBO for awhile. For right now, it stands at $548.5M, 4.7% above RO's final of $523.9M. This would be a WW total of $1.07B, 0.9% above RO's $1.06B.

Getting personal in here folks. I suggest everyone move on before things escalate further and we really have to step in!
