'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Cast Salaries Revealed

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making history with the amount of money the film is grossing at the box office and it looks like the salaries for the cast members were well spent!

Harrison Ford by far made more money than anyone else in the cast with a reported salary of anywhere between $10 million and $20 million, according to Variety.

The other returning cast members, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, earned in the low-seven-figure range.

John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, who are both newcomers to the cast and the film world in general, were paid between $100-300k.

Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, who are both well established actors at this point, earned in the mid-to-high-six figures.

All of the deals are expected to be renegotiated for the upcoming sequels!

    The review in Disneyleaks is right on. This is the least imaginative or original Star Wars movie so far. It was just a scene-by-scene ripoff of the Episodes IV and V that was so predictable that any true Star Wars fan would feel let down that Disney decided only to reboot the original movies. It sucked!

    thats the reason they were hiding the reviews so that it does not impact on the movie, this was going to make money regardless off good bad reviews.Disney is the biggest winner they got paid back for the price they paid for buying this franchise so is it any wonder they will keep on rebooting the originals.

    Is there a link for that review?

    Marketing over artistic integrity is what Disney’s all about. You can tell by how many Best Picture Oscars they have won over the years.

    So they practically robbed the new guys (especially Daisy Ridley) blind with this. Unless of course they negotiated for royalty.

    Disney is well known for being cheap when it comes to paying actors salaries. It should not be based upon the person’s age or years of experience. It should be based upon the roll being played and how much the movie grosses in the theaters, dvd’s, cable, etc… Disney would rather pocket the money themselves than be fair to the actors making it all happen. It’s so disgusting. To hear Daisy Ridley & John Boyega were paid between $100k to $300k for a top grossing film, both being lead characters throughout the entire movie, it’s so pathetic when they should have been paid at least $10M each. Disney does the same thing with the kids tv shows. Disney makes so much money over them, kids with leading parts are paid $5k an episode…when they should be earning $75k – $150k an episode…sometimes more.
