Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker remained No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended April 11.

The concluding chapter of what is now dubbed “The Skywalker Saga” debuted in the top spot a week earlier.
