Lucas doesn’t have to move a muscle and he still makes money. The director/producer gets paid anytime a Star Wars movie is shown and every time a kid buys Star Wars merchandise. The Hollywood director and producer is still reaping millions from his Star Wars franchise. The 6 movies have earned a total $4.3 billion in worldwide box office (not adjusting for inflation), while toys and other merchandise have grossed $20 billion since 1977. Now a new generation – reared on The Clone Wars, Lucas’ Cartoon Network – keeps the legacy alive.
