In terms of the best single posts on the week, Skywalker had to share those honors with Jumanji: The Next Level as they both secured an 8.0 power rating. Jumanji got a huge boost from it’s a-list star Dwayne Johnson who posted a photoshopped image of himself and fellow co-star Kevin Hart which cleared grabbed a whole lot of interest on the week.

The Rise Of Skywalker also led Facebook with 169,978 likes on the week, more than four times of the second place, Call Of The Wild. For a number of reasons, Facebook has been the hardest service for Skywalker to lead but there was no stopping it this week. Ironically, it didn’t secure the single largest post on the week, as Harrison Ford’s Call Of The Wild took the honors from the very franchise that granted him superstar status 40 years before.
