Star Wars toys
Although toys and games featuring characters from films are extremely common now, back when Star Wars was made it wasn't the case.

But George Lucas thought young film fans might want to play with toys based on the characters.

He was proved right, and Lucas made millions of dollars from toys, games and books, also called merchandising.

That money helped pay for the place where Lucas lives and his companies used operate from, Skywalker Ranch in California.
