“Star Wars” has become one of the most successful animated franchises in recent years.
It’s now set to be one of Disney’s biggest blockbuster hits of the year, according to analysts, and that could be even more significant as the franchise’s seventh film is set to release in 2019.
The blockbuster film, which will hit cinemas on December 15, 2019, has already sold more than 6 million tickets since it opened on December 16.
It is also the second highest grossing Disney animated film of all time behind “Beauty and the Beast.”
However, Disney has not yet revealed a release date for the seventh film, “The Last Jedi,” but analysts are predicting that the blockbuster film will hit theaters in 2019, sometime in 2019 and 2020.
Disney’s plans to release the seventh installment of the “Star War” franchise, based on the “Battlefront” video game franchise, are a clear sign of the company’s confidence in the film, said Peter Travers, an analyst with Cowen & Co.
The company already released “Rogue One” and “Avengers: Infinity War” last year, but “Star-Wars: The Force Awakens” was its biggest hit to date.
The film earned $6.6 billion worldwide in its opening weekend and it is currently the top-grossing movie in history with an estimated $9.3 billion worldwide, according the studio.
Disney is currently developing a sequel to “The Force Awakens.”
It is set for a 2018 release.
