    Jones didn’t make that much more for the sequels. He took a salary and NET points. Which if the film did well would get him a huge payout. But as of January 2021 neither Empire or Jedi have according to the Lucasfilm have ever produced a profit. It sounds crazy, but it’s true. So anyone who took NET points on the films never made a dime more than their salaries, or the amounts they were paid when it aired on PPV/Cable/Air by SAG/Aftra.
