As if the galaxy wasn’t already keen as mustard to see The Rise of Skywalker, it wouldn’t be a surprise in any manner if presales for Episode IX weren’t at the level of the highest grossing film in the franchise, The Force Awakens. Well, we can report that presales weren’t at the level of TFA – they were significantly higher.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is set to bow Dec. 20, is Atom Tickets’ second-biggest title in first day sales behind Marvel/Disney’s Avengers: Endgame, and it has sold 2.5 times as many tickets as Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017).

As it stands, Atom Tickets says its list of best-selling titles in the first 24 hours are Avengers: Endgame, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Aquaman (2018), Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

In addition, the trailer has racked up 11 million views in its first 24 hours, incredible numbers.
