The Last Jedi has stayed atop the box-office chart throughout the year-end holidays, grossing another $19.1 million from 4,232 theaters on Friday for a domestic total of $483.8 million and global total hovering around $974 million. Domestically, The Last Jedi is the highest grossing movie of the year.

The drop-off for "Star Wars" sequels was also the case for "The Empire Strikes Back", which made $98 million less than the first "Star Wars" did during its initial run in 1980. With strong word of mouth from both critics and audiences, the film is aimed at the sort of family audiences that "Star Wars" hopes to keep coming into the theaters as kids are out of school on winter break. Its sequel and the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX, will release in theaters on December 20, 2017. The official LEGO online store is now selling the LEGO Star Wars 2018 range, but does not yet have this particular set in stock.
