Star Wars Box Office’s Success Is Not A Success For Disney

Star Wars Box Office’s Success Is Not A Success For Disney

Based on the latest analysis of more than 800 pages of the financial statements, the production of Disney's five Star Wars films after 2012 came at a total cost of $2.1 billion, with Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens reaching a high of $567.3 million. 

The profits made by Disney from the Star Wars movie’s box office collection is a little over $1.2 billion. Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012 and green light a new trilogy of the Star Wars franchise. Since then, there have been some obstacles in the success of the franchise with Disney making a loss of almost $91 million from Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Current Financial Status

Of course, the capital doesn’t include the profits made by Disney through merchandise and subscriptions to the Disney+ streaming platform. However, it is fair to estimate that the success of shows like The Mandalorian and Andor must have given Disney a lot of confidence and satisfaction. 

With the upcoming ‘The Mandalorian and Grogu’ to theatres in 2026, they must be targeting massive openings for the feature film. The Mandalorian and Grogu is going to be the first Star Wars movie to hit cinema since 2019. 

Keep an eye on the dates.
