    I don't think it has a shot at 2 billion. There's a reason only 3 films have ever made that much. Now if it's an incredible film on top of being a Star Wars movie, then maybe. Also, and this is more of a personal gripe and has little to do with box office, I find the title "Star Wars story" a double edged sword. I think it's necessary to say "hey it's Star Wars" and also not a sequel, but it just sounds so cheesy. I liked Anthology, but I suppose I can guess many people might not catch on to what that means.

    Which is why I said "under $2 billion" was my expectation. I don't think it's gonna make that kind of money, either. I do, however, suspect that it'll do better in Asian territories (or at least China).

    I have revised my take and I am going for 1.3 billion WW.

    WOM will be needed for this one.

    I don't think it will open to half of what TFA took in

    WOM? I'd say $1.15 Billion through word-of-mouth . .

    It'll make an easy billion. If Vader and Boba Fett are in it, the gloves are off. I mean, heck, they have the emperor and can even get Ewen McGregor if they had too. Not that they will, but bringing back those whose were dead before Force Awakens? Damn.

    TFA is now over 921 million north America and what over 2 billion world wide, I don't think another star wars movie will hit that, as much as I would love it too.

    I feel I will do like 500-800 maybe end hit a billion but doubtful, ep8 on the other hand might do it again.
