Well, there it is, folks. It wasn’t a matter of if the film would hit $1 billion. It was only a question of when it would get the job done.

It’s Wednesday, and the job has been accomplished. Below is a live look at all the executives at Disney.

It’s hard to fathom just how much money $1 billion truly is. Most movies couldn’t dream of ever hitting $100 million.

Hell, most don’t even sniff $50 million. Yet, since its December opening, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has been stacking up cash nonstop.

People clearly wanted to know how the journey would end after being set in motion decades ago.

Now, the question is where will the movie end up at the box office. I have no doubt “TROS” still has some runway left.
