Star Wars The Force Awakens"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is raking in the $$$ at the box office, but not all of its stars have the paycheck to reflect the windfall.

An initial report from the Daily Mail outlined the salaries of the major actors in "The Force Awakens."

Variety checked those figures and here's what sources told them:

Harrison Ford received an eight-figured paycheck ($10-20 million).
Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill made salaries in the low seven-figure range.
Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver got mid- to high-six figures (above $500,000).
Daisy Ridley and John Boyega earned something between $100,000-$300,000.

That would mean Ford possibly made a whopping 76 times more than Ridley and Boyega. Of course, Ford is a huge star, while the younger actors are relative newcomers. Plus, Disney and Lucasfilm opted to create a "legacy pay scale" for returning actors from the original "Star Wars" movies. And the storyline of "The Force Awakens" depended heavily on Han Solo's involvement.

""Harrison is the key to making this movie work. He's the link between the old generation and the new," a source told the Daily Mail. "Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were good to get, but the film could have lived without them. You couldn't make it without Harrison Ford."
