Star Wars is one of the most popular movie franchises in history, with a massive fan base spanning multiple generations. However, not all Star Wars movies have been equally successful at the box office. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at which Star Wars movie made the least amount of money.
The Phantom Menace
Released in 1999, The Phantom Menace was the first film in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Despite high expectations and a massive marketing campaign, it didn’t perform as well as expected at the box office. The movie grossed $1.027 billion worldwide, which is still an impressive figure but significantly less than its successor films.
Attack of the Clones
The second installment in the prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones was released in 2002. It fared slightly better than its predecessor but still fell short of expectations. The film grossed $653 million worldwide, which is almost half of what The Phantom Menace made.
Revenge of the Sith
Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005 and marked the end of the prequel trilogy. It was also considered by many to be an improvement over its predecessors in terms of storyline and action sequences.
However, it still failed to match up to the original trilogy’s success at the box office. The movie grossed $868 million worldwide.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Solo: A Star Wars Story was released in 2018 and faced a lot of production issues during filming. It also received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, which reflected on its box office performance. The movie grossed $393 million worldwide, making it one of the lowest-grossing films in the Star Wars franchise.
In conclusion, while all Star Wars movies have been successful to some extent, not all of them have been equally successful. The Phantom Menace may have made the least amount of money compared to other Star Wars films, but it’s still one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. It’s clear that the Star Wars franchise has a loyal fan base that will continue to support it in the years to come.
