Disney Reportedly Spent $20 Million To Save Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

When it comes to Star Wars rumors online, it’s a good idea to approach them with healthy skepticism. That’s why, when we heard that test screenings for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker had gone so disastrously that Lucasfilm called in George Lucas to fix the movie, I raised an eyebrow. That eyebrow then threatened to escape my forehead and shoot off into the stratosphere when I read that Disney had to spend an additional $300 million to get things back on track.

Given that the budget of the entire film is already roughly $300 million (in the same territory as The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi), spending another $300 million on top of that to fix it is near implausible. For one, it’d make the The Rise of Skywalker the most expensive pic of all-time at about $600 million, dwarfing Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ $378.5 million budget.
