STAR WARS Surpasses HARRY POTTER To Become Second Biggest Box Office Franchise Of All Time

Star Wars has surpassed Harry Potter as the second-highest grossing movie franchise of all time, but it'll most likely never become the biggest ever thanks to another Disney-owned property. Check it out...

The box office success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (now over $1 billion) has helped push Star Wars past the Harry Potter universe of films to become the second-highest grossing franchise of all time.

According to Star Wars News Net, the Star Wars franchise - which is comprised of 10 theatrically released movies - has earned a total of $8,556,678,930 worldwide, while the Harry Potter franchise (9 films) has earned $8,539,253,704.

The regularity of Star Wars films being released now that Disney is calling the shots pretty much guarantees that the franchise is in no danger of dropping below second; however, another Disney-owned property will probably prevent it from ever becoming first The Marvel Cinematic Universe has already grossed an estimated $13.5 billion worldwide (with Thor: Ragnarok still in theaters). With Disney pumping out fresh Marvel films at a pace faster than Star Wars, the number one spot for highest grossing franchise will remain in a very differnt galaxy far, far away — one that'll soon be turned on its head from a visit by Thanos.

Looking ahead, Star Wars will be bolstered by the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25, 2018) and Episode I(December 20, 2019. Marvel, meanwhile, will see Black Panther on February 16, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018, and Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018.
