I gotta go with Harry Potter as well.

It was hugely successful. Like SW it made a particular genre into a mainstream phenom. And just like SW changed the way that movie studios did business, HP changed publishing.
If Rowling was smart just like Lucas and to make Potter immortal just as Lucas is going to make Wars - she'd sell the rights to another studio like Universal and they would make Potter live forever as well.

Especially since she has no interest in writing any more Potter books.
