Ding, dong the Force is dead!

Okay, the Force isn't dead, exactly, but it's facing the end of its reign, the end of their years-long bragging rights as the most successful cinematic franchise of all time. Though George Lucas' 'Star Wars' has earned a mind-boggling $1.9 billion over the course of six films, spraying the world with the Force and wicked lightsaber battles, there's a franchise primed to beat the record and send Luke and his troubled dad packing.

No, it's not the blunt-teeth world of Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight.' It's that boy wizard who can fly brooms like the dudes of 'Top Gun' fly planes, and fight evil with great success -- J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter.
