So far, the Star Wars series has accumulated a massive $7.5 billion worldwide at the box office. Domestically, the 21st Century Fox (FOX) films have reeled in more than $3.7 billion.
When the first film, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, was released in 1977, it made some $787 million worldwide at the box office. Fast forward to 2015 when the hit series returned with Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens and garnered about $2.3 billion globally at the box office.
But Fox and Star Wars creator George Lucas weren't the only ones to see their wallets fatten on the popular film series.
Here's a look at some of the other companies making bank on the franchise.
Toy maker Hasbro (HAS) acquired Kenner Products in 1991, which held the license with Lucasfilm to manufacture all toys based off the Star Wars films. Since the release of the most recent film, Hasbro has touted its Star Wars brand for its continued revenue growth. In its recent first quarter, revenue rose 2% to $849.7 million, led by growth in its franchise category, which saw its net sales grow to $423.6 million from $416.4 million the previous year. "Overall, what we've seen is that Star Wars year on year continues to perform," Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said on a recent company earnings call.
Disney (DIS) bought the Star Wars franchise from Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion. The budget for the entire franchise is about $838 billion. The two most recent films, The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, cost $200 million each to make but gained $2.3 billion and $1.1 billion, respectively, worldwide at the box office. In December, Walt Disney Studios said it became the first Hollywood studio to reach $7 billion in worldwide movie ticket sales, thanks to Star Wars.
After the launch of The Force Awakens, AMC Entertainment (AMC) , which operates some 900 theaters with 10,000 screens worldwide, saw its sales spike. In the fiscal quarter following the film's 2015 release, AMC's total revenue rose 10.1% to $783.9 million and its admissions revenue increased 8.4% to $498.7 million. Its attendance for the quarter also popped 5.8%.
For the release of the Rogue One film last year, Nissan (NSANY) dressed up its Rogue SUVs in Star Wars Jedi fighter gear, a move that went along with its TV ad campaign Rogue-Rogue One. The campaign led to an 18% spike in Rogue SUV sales and a 300% boost to Nissan's website, according to USA Today.
