Despite mixed reaction from critics and fans, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker banked more than half a billion dollars in its first week of release.
After pulling in another $32 million in the U.S. on Christmas Day, the trilogy-capping sequel crossed the $500 million mark in total worldwide earnings.
Disney said the sequel was the biggest Christmas Day for any movie since "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" which was released before the holiday in 2015.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker proved to be the flick of choice for Christmas moviegoers. While Jumanji: The Next Level, brought in $12.5 million on Christmas Day.
