The amount of money “TROS” has made globally is nothing short of shocking. After decades and decades of buildup, fans finally got the conclusion we’ve waited for.

Whether you loved the ending or hated it (I gave it a 7/10), there’s no question people showed up in large numbers to watch it unfold.

Most movies are lucky to break even. “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” is just out here stacking up cash.

It’s going to be very interesting to see where the final “TROS” numbers end up. The $1 billion mark is going to be crossed at any day.

At this point, it’s about how much extra money it can stack up. At this point, it’s all gravy.
