Leaked ‘Behind the Scenes’ images have landed online from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, they look to have come from a PDF presentation by production designers Rick Carter and Kevin Jenkins…check them out below.
We’ve waited long enough, some of us over 40 years for the Skywalker saga to finally come to conclusion, and it finally returns to theatres this Christmas with the finale…Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will finally end the set of three trilogies.
We have a, how should I say ‘passionate’ fanbase, and some didn’t take too kindly to The Last Jedi, and that seemed to have had an impact on Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was a solid movie, and deserved a lot better than the audience figures it received. But with this in mind, will they actually show up at theatres to find out how this Skywalker finally finale finishes?
I think they will for the finale, it’s had great marketing and with screenwriter, Chris Terrio, the Oscar-winning writer and director for Argo onboard to help JJ. Abrams complete the sequel trilogy, I think the odds are quite favourable for a record-breaking opening weekend
That said — 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens — ended up raking in $936,662,225 domestically. Two years later, its follow up, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, saw a major dip in earnings, pulling in only $620,181,382. That world of a difference is exactly why this year’s release leaves so many questions.
So to bet how well this film will do is a tough call, but it’s easy to imagine that Skywalker will do better than Jedi, but not performing as well as Awakens… Although, as Han would say… “Never Tell Me The Odds” …We will soon see.
