You are a bold one, General Kenobi!

I think it’s interesting how people are guessing at the domestic/international split. Star Wars has never really been a series that goes much over 60% international, and I don’t think that even if Rise of Skywalker ends up being a near perfect film that has astounding word of mouth, that it’ll do much more than a 50/50 split. I think I’m predicting closer to 55/45 in the domestic direction? But I think that domestic turn-out is going to be really, really big.

Star Wars has always been more a North American phenomenon than an international one, and as the box-office markets have exploded in the last 20 years, that has only gotten more true.
