An “Star Wars” sequel is coming, and it could be a billion-dollar franchise.
The movie has made a whopping $1.7 billion at the global box office, making it the second-highest-grossing film of all time behind the 2014 release of “The Force Awakens.”
The sequel to the “Star Trek” reboot has grossed $1 billion worldwide.
That’s not the only record-breaking movie on the horizon.
There are currently two films that are expected to make millions, both of which are in production.
One is “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which has earned $1 million per frame in China, with another in the works that will begin production in 2019.
“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the third film in the “Lord of the Rings” series, has already made more than $500 million worldwide.
The sequel of the “Avengers” movie, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” is expected to open this year.
Both movies have already earned more than a billion dollars.
But that doesn’t mean that they won’t be huge flops.
The “Star War” franchise was a $10 billion franchise in 2003, and the sequel of “Starman” has already earned nearly $1 Billion worldwide.
There’s also a sequel planned for 2020, titled “StarWars: The Force Awakens,” which is set to debut on December 18, 2019.
Both films have grossed more than one billion dollars, but the sequel to “Star wars” has earned a better-than-expected $1billion.
That makes it the third-biggest-grosser franchise worldwide, behind “Lord Of The Rings” and “Star Warrior.”
But that’s not all.
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” which earned $9.8 billion worldwide last year, has made more money than any other film of the franchise.
And it’s coming out in 2019, right before “The Lord of the Wars” movies.
The new movie will be directed by “Beautys” star Emma Watson, who is currently filming the film.
“Beauties” stars Sally Hawkins, Idris Elba, and Ezra Miller.
