The popularity of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has risen since its recent release in the U.S., and continues to prosper worldwide. As of January 10, 2016, it is recognized that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the #3 movie of all time worldwide, and domestically it is the first movie to ever pass $800 million, as stated by comingsoon.net.
Disney has also recently released that they are building 14-acre “Star Wars land” at both the Orlando and Anaheim locations. The two main attractions at these locations will be Millennium Falcon secret mission, and an experience of battle between the First Order and the resistance. About 14 percent of Disneyland’s attractions will be closed for the construction of this project, and a completion date has not yet been provided.
