Ranking the Star Wars movies from worst to best

5. Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2064 million)

“Chewie, we’re home” – Han Solo


If one thing is clear, is that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a love letter to Star Wars films. This gave fans what they wanted by bringing back the sci-fi retro look of the original movies and largely ignoring George Lucas’ prequel films, with their flashy CGI and freaky aliens like Jar Jar Binks. So it is no surprise The Force Awakens is the top-grossing Star Wars film to date, having made more than $2 billion at the box office worldwide.

And director J.J. Abrams’ movie not only features exhilarating action, dogfights and the trademark lightsaber duels, but also great performances. Harrison Ford is particularly great as aged smuggler Han Solo, and newcomers John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (who plays a young woman who might be strong in the Force) deliver great performances too. All in all, this is not only the highest grossing Star Wars movie to date, but also one of the best Star Wars and sci-fi movies made to date.
