The anticipation for the new Star Wars movie is very high. “The Rise of Skywalker” will be the ninth and final chapter of the saga. The bad news is that the early reviews are in for the film and they are terrible. In fact, a Star Wars film has not received reviews this bad since “The Phantom Menace., reports USA Today” That was the movie that featured the infamous Jar Jar Binks character that was loathed by everyone. “The Last Jedi” was release two years ago. It also had very bad reviews when it was released. Not surprisingly, the film was very successful. There is no question that these films are immune to bad reviews.
At the end of the day, “The Rise of Skywalker” is going to rake in a huge sum. There are many people who believe that it will easily go past $1 billion at the global box office. The critics are picking apart the poorly conceived story and the bad acting. However, they have once again praised the special effects in the film. Disney has been making many Star Wars films since they bought the rights to the franchise from George Lucas several years ago. However, it was recently announced that Disney will not be making another Star Wars film for a very long time. They will instead be focusing on making Star Wars shows for their Disney+ streaming service.
JJ Abrams once again wrote and directed ‘The Rise of Skywalker.” He was also the man at the helm of “The Force Awakens.” Fans of the series have not enjoyed the two most recent installments. The common complaints have been the lame story and the slow pace. It is not known if these complaints are accurate as of yet. The film will most certainly become the seventh film produced by Disney to go over the $1 billion mark this year.
Star Wars is the most lucrative franchise in film history. There is nothing else that even comes close. That means that any movie that has the Star Wars brand is going to make a huge amount of money regardless of what all of the critics say. It will be very interesting to see how the fans react to the film when they start to see it this weekend. Professional film critics are the ones who gave the movie awful review. People will start leaving reviews for the film after they see it this weekend.
