‘Star Wars’ Beats ‘Avatar’ as Highest Grossing Movie of All Time

Jordin Agemy, Feature Reporter

After six years of the film ‘Avatar’ being the highest grossing movie of all time, with total revenues of $2.7 billion globally, has been surpassed by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While it took Avatar 318 days to get that much money, it only took Star Wars 20 days to make $3 billion. To make the film, the production company spent about $200 million. This is the most amount of money spent to produce a Star Wars film.
Many people have seen this film more than once, also adding to the amount of money taken in by Disney, the company that owns the Star Wars franchise. Nevertheless, the immense popularity of the Star Wars universe has grown vastly since the release of the The Force Awakens. Star Wars has slated the next five films to be released, including a Han Solo origin, Boba Fett origin, Rebel Alliance origin, and the Star Wars 8th and 9th installments, said to end the long fought battle.
