Star Wars Movies

You'd kind of expect the Star Wars movies to have three pretty big dropoffs in living percentage, given the 20-year gaps between the trilogy of trilogies, but there are some curious ups and downs which go against this. The fact that far more cast members are shared between the original triogy and the recent trilogy, as compared to the original trilogy and the prequels, accounts for some of this. The youthfulness of the cast of The Phantom Menace in fact results in it having fewer dead cast members than The Force Awakens from a decade and a half later.
