It is hard to believe that a small science fiction movie with a relatively modest budget could turn into a movie empire (pun intended) that has entertained and amazed generations. Almost 40 years after A New Hope debuted, Star Wars remains a dominant movie franchise with countless marketing extensions that permeate just about every aspect of pop culture.
So just how big has Star Wars become after all these years? Here are the more interesting Star Wars facts and statistics I was able to dig up. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.
Please note that some of these Star Wars statistics and facts are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed here should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
