Rise of Skywalker Tracking and Evolution of the Stormtrooper

-

The first Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker tracking numbers have come in and point to the film having a domestic opening of around $205 million (via Deadline). That would fall below the openings of 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($247.9 million) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220 million).

The top opening of all time in North America is Avengers: Endgame with $357.1 million earlier this year, and Avengers: Infinity War also opened bigger than the new Star Wars films with $257.7 million in 2018.

In related news, Lucasfilm has brought online a new video which takes a look at the evolution of the stormtrooper, from the classic stormtrooper to new designs featured in the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker. You can watch the video in the player below.

Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams join forces once again to take viewers on an epic journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the riveting conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, where new legends will be born and the final battle for freedom is yet to come. The film opens in theaters on December 20th.

Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio. The film stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.




Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, returns to a galaxy far, far away with The Rise of Skywalker. The movie is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, and executive produced by Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin.
