Harry Potter is one of the most lucrative movie franchises of all time but Star Wars has now moved past it in terms of global box office numbers.

Star Wars isn’t the highest grossing franchise in history, however, as the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its 17 films is still out in first place with $13.5 billion.

I can't see star wars, or any franchise, ever over taking Marvel. Hard to compete with a franchise that does 2 movies a year.

Star Wars set the bar from the get go. The original trilogy has some of the highest grossing films of all time, with Star Wars being in the top spot for a considerable amount of time. Couldn't imagine what would have happened if Disney had this in their umbrella the whole time. You had a huge gap from 1983 to 1999 between Return of the Jedi and Phantom Menace. Everytime they put out a Star Wars movie, it conquers the box office. To think if Star Wars was spitting out 2 to 4 movies a year since 1983... the amount of money this franchise could have made would be astronomical.
