When George Lucas had gotten the go signal to start making his dream movie, Star Wars: A New Hope, he never expected that the franchise would become so famous. The movie had grossed more than $775 million across the world and was also the 3rd highest grossing movie. The sequels and three prequels were followed by animated TV series, books, comics and video games.
20th Century Fox did not believe that this movie would perform well and it let Lucas even negotiate a contract where the majority of merchandise sales went to him. The toy company, Kenner Products then got the license for Star Wars and started making toys for the franchise.
Kenner was then bought by Hasbro and they went crazy with the Star Wars toys and released many Star Wars-themed products and Lucas had allowed a few other companies to also use this license. Disney has now taken over Star Wars and is releasing new movies. Hasbro is now churning out the at a pretty alarming rate.
