Here's How Much Every 'Star Wars' Movie Made At The Box Office On Opening Weekend

The latest film in the "Star Wars" universe made its worldwide debut on Dec. 20, 2019. Walt Disney Co's (NYSE: DIS) "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" was good enough for the 12th-biggest opening of all time in the United States, but came in far below its predecessors.

"Rise Of Skywalker" is the third and final film in the latest iteration of "Star Wars" trilogies, following "The Force Awakens" in 2015 and "The Last Jedi" in 2017.

"This movie, it's about this new generation, and what they've inherited, the light and the dark," producer J.J. Abrams said earlier this year.

Here's a look at how every other "Star Wars" film performed in North America in their respective opening weekend, courtesy of Box Office Mojo.
