By David L. StewartA new Disney Star Wars film is the largest single-day ticket sales in Disney’s history.
But the film, which stars Daisy Ridley as a Jedi Knight, has also drawn criticism for its $1.3 trillion budget.
That’s according to a new study by The Associated Press, which found that Rogue One could cost $2 billion to make.
The AP also found that the film could cost more than the cost of the first four Star Wars movies combined, making it the second-largest movie in Disney history.
The studio says the film will be released domestically in 2021.
The AP’s analysis found that about 7% of ticket buyers will see a movie with a budget of $2,500 or more, and 20% will see it with a total budget of more than $4,000.
About 1% will spend more than that.
The report says the average ticket price for Rogue One will be $89.
The Star Wars franchise, which was founded in 1977 by George Lucas, has grown exponentially since the prequels.
In the latest film, Luke Skywalker (played by Oscar Isaac) is tasked with protecting the planet from an evil alien race that is intent on conquering the galaxy.
In the years since the first film, Rogue One, has been a critical and box office success, grossing more than a billion dollars worldwide.
The sequel, Rogue Legacy, is due out in 2021 and stars Felicity Jones and Diego Luna as Leia Organa, a Resistance pilot.
Rogue One is the latest installment in the highly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which has been the biggest box office hit of all time.
The film has grossed more than seven billion dollars, making Rogue One the third-highest-grossing film in Disney-owned history.
