Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘ Shatters Ticket Pre-Sale Record. A story that started a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away is now coming to an epic and spectacular conclusion.

For the lucky few who were paying attention, tickets became available shortly before the start of the NFL Monday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets, which premiered the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker during their halftime programing.

Before the trailer even premiered Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had already surpassed the world record for ticket pre-sales, dethroning Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame by a whopping 45% in the first hour!

Slashfilm shared the news and the hope for a record breaking earning for Disney and Lucasfilm when The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters December 20th.

“This bodes well for the box office performance of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, as Endgame would go on to rake in $2.79 billion globally, dethroning Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time (unadjusted for inflation). According to Atom Tickets, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the most anticipated movie this fall, which points to a sky-high box office haul when the film hits theaters this December.”
