This doesn't surprise me at all. This franchise is huge. My husband's company has rented an entire theater so everyone can see the newest movie this week.

Star Wars has always been amazing, from the actual movies to the fandom they inspire and now seeing the money aspect I am just in awe...

The numbers are absolutely mind boggling, yet not surprising with such a popular movie franchise. I just hope it lives up to the hype.

Not surprising since the movie franchise is so big and well liked.

Wow, I knew it was huge but that those numbers...a bit surprising actually that it has made that much. I myself hate Star Wars and everything it has to offer but my wife and son love it.

Those are some incredible numbers. & I can't see it lives in value anytime soon. Star Wars is an incredible saga and money maker.

It is truly amazing to me the amount of influence that these movies have had on the economy. I also would love to see how the toy licensing and other gear licensing has changed since Disney has now taken over.

I have been buying Star Wars stuff for my son every Christmas for the past 30 years. This is no surprise to me.
