The Star Wars franchise provides the perfect battle between good and evil, with the dark side and light side of the force battling it out to provide balance to the world they live in, with Jedis and bounty hunters and everything else in between.
The films may have created one of the most iconic villains in movie history with Darth Vader, but in the same token, they have made some amazing heroes as well, from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The actors who portrayed many of the classic Star Wars characters have become legends in the eyes of many, with the movies setting them up for life. Within this article, we will take a look at the net worth of the actors who lived life on the light side of the Star Wars world.
10 Peter Mayhew (Net Worth: $5 Million)
Peter Mayhew is a Star Wars legend, having portrayed the fan-favourite, Chewbacca until his unfortunate passing earlier on this year, with the incredibly tall actor not always getting the credit he deserved for his portrayal of the Wookie.
Chewbacca is one of the best characters in Star Wars history, with his shooting and flying abilities being second to none, and although Mayhew may have earned more money in a role where his face wasn't covered, he ended up growing a net worth of $5 million.
While the role of Chewbacca has now been recast, as the Wookie continues to play a key role in the movies, there is no doubt that Mayhew will always be the man people think of first.
9 John Boyega (Net Worth: $6 Million)
John Boyega is a key part of the new generation of Star Wars fans, portraying the popular Finn character, and this is how he really burst onto the scene as an actor, quickly rising to be a major name in Hollywood.
Previous to entering the Star Wars world, Boyega had starred in Attack the Block, as well as the TV series, Becoming Human, but it really was his role in the new trilogy that took him to a new level of fame.
While Boyega is really only just starting out on his career, this role is no doubt going to change things for him, already helping him get a net worth of $6 million, which isn't a bad start to life.
8 Daisy Ridley (Net Worth: $6 Million)
Speaking of actors who have burst onto the scene through the latest instalments of the franchise, Daisy Ridley has also seriously benefited from being part of the Star Wars world and also has a net worth of $6 million.
Ridley, who portrays the character, Rey, has been one of the highlights of the new movies, and even though her character is quite complex, with some fans speculating she may actually join the dark side, for now, she has fought for good.
With the big mystery surrounding who her father might be, there is plenty of excitement about Rey's character heading into the final movie, and there is no doubt Ridley will continue doing an excellent job with it.
7 Oscar Isaac (Net Worth: $10 Million)
Oscar Isaac was brought in to play a fairly similar role to Han Solo in the original trilogy, with Isaac's character, Poe Dameron being a confident, charming, and good looking pilot, while the others battle with sabers down below.
Isaac is the richest of the three new major stars, with a net worth of $10 million, which is mainly because he was a more established actor before joining the franchise, having landed roles in movies like Ex Mechanica and The Last Nativity Story.
While he might not get as much screen time as others in Star Wars, there is no doubt he is becoming a fan favorite, with people really warming to his character.
6 Mark Hammill (Net Worth: $18 Million)
Mark Hammill portrays the ultimate good guy in the Star Wars franchise, with Luke Skywalker being a character that is incredibly beloved by the fans for the iconic moments he has in the originals.
Of course, there wasn't as much money to be made in the originals as there is in blockbuster movies these days, which is why he ranks far lower than most people may have expected to see him.
Away from Star Wars, Hammill spends a lot of his time doing voice-over work, particularly for The Joker in various Batman projects, helping him grow a net worth of $18 million.
5 Carrie Fisher (Net Worth: $25 Million)
There is a reason that the world was heartbroken when Carrie Fisher sadly passed away, and a large part of that is down to her incredible work in the Star Wars movies, with Fisher being beloved by fans.
Her role as Princess Leia is legendary, creating a character that was not only beautiful and sexy but could also handle herself and stood up to the men in her life, all while creating an iconic hairstyle in the process.
Fisher created a body of work that earned her a net worth of $25 million before she, unfortunately, passed away, but her work in the Star Wars world will no doubt live on forever.
4 Ewan McGregor (Net Worth: $45 Million)
There is a reason why fans lost their minds when it was announced recently that Ewan McGregor would be returning to his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it is because his performance of the character is the single best thing about the prequels.
Without his incredible work in those three movies, the prequels would be complained about far more than they are, because he was frankly superb in all three of them, helping to create an iconic character.
He had a lot to live up to with the original Ben Kenobi being a very popular part of the original trilogy and he certainly did that. However, McGregor's career stretches far beyond just Star Wars, which is why he has earned a net worth of $45 million so far in his career.
3 Frank Oz (Net Worth: $80 Million)
Frank Oz might not be a name that you are overly familiar within the Star Wars world, but he actually plays a big role in the movies as he is not only the voice but also the puppeteer of Yoda.
Oz is the man in charge of all of Yoda's movements and the iconic voice that people still imitate to this day, with Oz's work being one of the main reasons why the character became so popular.
Away from working on Yoda, Frank Oz also worked heavily on The Muppets, which is one of the main reasons he has grown a net worth of $80 million.
2 Alec Guinness (Net Worth: $100 Million)
Alec Guinness' portrayal of Ben Kenobi in the original Star Wars is one of the highlights of the entire series, with Guinness putting in an unbelievable performance, getting the perfect balance of calm and action when needed.
Guinness is given some fantastic lines to work with during his time in the series, coming out with some of the most quotable Star Wars phrases, which is another reason he is so beloved by fans.
Away from a galaxy far, far away, Guinness earned his $100 million net worth via movies such as The Great Expectations, with Guinness continuing to work until his passing in 2000.
1 Harrison Ford (Net Worth: $230 Million)
Harrison Ford portrayed the incredibly popular, Han Solo in the Star Wars franchise, who is one of the most beloved characters in the history of the movies, with his charm and cheekiness being something people loved about him.
While he may not have been able to control the force per-say, with his skills coming from flying the Millenium Falcon and using a blaster, he still very much battled for the light side within the movies.
Star Wars isn't the only major franchise Ford stars in though, with the actor also portraying Indiana Jones, which is why it is no surprise to learn he has a huge net worth of $230 million.
