    I don't get the "Baby Yoda" phenomenon myself. I mean, I understand in the abstract the appeal and see how it works as a marketing coup, but it does nothing for me personally.

    New show just beginning vs. a trilogy wrapping up. Makes sense that the former will be getting more hype in the here and now.

    But even if I compare it to the EU Novels I have read (mostly the X-Wing and the Thrawn books), and the animated TV series (Clone Wars, Rebels) the new characters and villains feel really weak in comparison.

    And it Came to Pass on the 28th Day;


    'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Tops $1 Billion at the Global Box Office!!!



    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnb...ox-office.html


    •"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" has officially made more than $1 billion at the global box office.

    •The film is Disney's seventh 2019 release to hit this benchmark, a record in the film industry.

    •The previous record, which was four billion-dollar movies in one year, was also held by Disney.



    "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" has joined the billion-dollar club.

    On Tuesday, the ninth installment in the Skywalker Saga surpassed $1 billion at the global box office. It has made $481.3 million domestically and $519.7 million internationally since its Dec. 20 release.

    "The Rise of Skywalker" is Disney's seventh 2019 release to surpass this box office benchmark. No other media company has come close to this kind of record before.

    The previous record, which was four billion-dollar movies in one year, was also held by Disney. In 2016, "Zootopia," "Finding Dory," "Captain America: Civil War" and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" all crossed that benchmark.

    In 2019, "Captain Marvel," "Aladdin," "The Lion King," "Avengers: Endgame," "Frozen II" and "Toy Story 4" were the other films released by Disney that surpassed $1 billion. Notably, "Endgame" became the highest grossing film of all time last year, garnering $2.798 billion worldwide during its run.

    In total, Disney garnered $11.1 billion in global movie ticket sales in 2019, another record in the industry for a single studio. With the addition of 21st Century Fox titles, which the company acquired in April, Disney hauled in more than $13.1 billion. Neither of these figures include what Disney has made in January, which pushed "The Rise of Skywalker" over the billion-dollar mark.

    "'Skywalker' will be lucky number seven for Disney and at this point hitting a billion dollars should silence all the naysayers who felt it underperformed upon its release about a month ago," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. "The seeds of success that the studio planted in their amazing year of 2019 continue to bear fruit in 2020 with yet another box office milestone achieved within the Star Wars canon of films."

    JJ Abrams had an unenviable task after Disney let Rian Johnson run wild, but he pulled it off and he deserves our respect.

    The toxic fandom don't have issues with those two like 2 of the 3 had to deal with.

    The build up of those two has not be derailed like it was for Finn.

    Also those two are not following the OT cast. They are on their own.

    Do we have to tear people down to compliment others?

    I actually loved The Last Jedi. Which is probably why I was so let down by Rise of Skywalker.
