Star Wars

We’ve seen a lot of fantasy movie franchises over the past few years that have racked in hundreds of millions of dollars across the globe. Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings have seen success in more areas than just the box office.

At the 2004 Oscars, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King took home best picture and won more awards than any other film in Academy Award history. Harry Potter and Star Wars haven’t received that recognition. Stars Wars: A New Hope was nominated in 1977, but lost to Woody Allen’s Annie Hall.

While all the films are great in their own way, it’s interesting to see how long their legacy lasts. Star Wars is still popular today, especially with the newer trilogy and the re-release of the films. Lord of the Ringswas unique, but certainly the slowest paced and longest films (each was over 3 hours).

Lord of the Rings

In all honesty, I think Lord of the Ringswon’t have an impact on future generations. Even with The Hobbit coming out this year, Harry Potter and Star Wars seem to have a bigger fan base and merchandise.
