While fans of Star Wars take a minute to appreciate the pictures, and speculate on the plot and characters of the upcoming blockbuster, executives at Walt Disney Co are preparing for an entirely different kind of release. The company’s earnings for the first quarter of the year are due to be released on Tuesday afternoon.

Before going into all of that, here’s a run down of what we now know about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The film is bound to be one of the biggest releases of the year, and it’s going to be the most important event for investors to Watch.

The exact earnings power of the Star Wars franchise will be forecast based on the performance of that first film, and investors will want to see audience excitement building long before its release.
