Variety reports that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opened to $176 million at the U.S box office, which would be a god-send for any film, let alone any franchise, but this is Star Wars, the exception to everything. "Audiences are generally responding really positively to the film".

"We know that people are very passionate about "Star Wars" and have very strong opinions about it". It was initially projected that "The Rise of Skywalker" would earn around $ 179 million in its first weekend, which means it opened slightly below industry expectations.

Box office analysts say that the film's true test will be how it performs after Christmas due to the prior two films hitting theatres further away from the holiday season. It's lazy, completely devoid of imagination, overstuffed, and has the worst script of any Star Wars film. In 2012, Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4 billion. The next "Star Wars" movie, which will take place outside the Skywalker saga, is not scheduled for release until 2022. "The Mandalorian" helped launch the Disney Plus streaming service. To make way for "Rise of Skywalker", the latest episode of "The Mandalorian" debuted on Wednesday, rather than Friday. The film has received less-than-stellar reviews from critics, as well as intense debate among fans (it's received a B+ CinemaScore, the lowest ever for a Star Wars live-action film).
