Re: What franchise has had the closest cultural impact since Star Wars

Sorry-my answer is NOTHING. Star Wars pasted itself right across American society in a way HP/LOTR/Avatar can never do.
Most kids I meet IRL who give a damn about such things (remarkable numbers of young people actually don't expend much emotional energy on movies and TV, you know) are not particularly interested in Star Wars. Harry Potter has been a much bigger deal in their lives.

Avatar is likely to have the most long-term effect on the way movies are made - perhaps closer to SW in that respect than HP is - but that's not quite what was asked.
