When creating such a worldwide phenomenon such as Star Wars, it’s no surprise that the people behind the series are rolling in dough. While Disney themselves have gotten quite a profit from the new movies, that doesn’t mean that the man who created the idea is left empty handed now. Despite George Lucas selling the property back in 2012 for about $4.1 billion dollars, the man still manages to generate a lot of revenue as by the end of 2018, he has a net worth of $5.4 billion.
The filmmaker and producer has generated more revenue than ally director Steven Spielberg and modern day celebrities such as Jay Z and Kylie Jenner. Spielberg did however manage to take second place with a net revenue of $3.7 billion dollars, right behind Lucas’ $5.4 billion. Behind both directors are Oprah Winfrey with $2.8 billion, Michael Jordan with $1.7 billion and Kylie Jenner and Jay Z both tied at around $900 million dollars. It is clear that these celebrities won’t be slowing down with all the movies, and social media presence going on for them to help make them have a more than desirable earning for the next few years.
