Four years ago, when Disney bought Lucasfilm and the rights to Stars Wars for $4 billion, a few people thought it was madness. Now, on the back of the $2 billion box office revenue generated by the first film under the Disney banner – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – as well as the countless merchandise sales, you’ll have to agree it might be quite astute deal-making from the Disney executives.

Currently, Star Wars: The Force Awakens sits loftily in third position in the highest-grossing films of all time worldwide, behind Avatar and Titanic (not adjusted for inflation).
