Pictures have emerged of the final title sequence which mentions Osborne alongside Culture and Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey.
The pair were given a mention by the film's producers as a result of their role in changing UK tax incentives awarded to big blockbuster productions. Films in the 'Star Wars' franchise have always been filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.
Meanwhile 'Force Awakens' is expected to become the biggest grossing film of the year, and potentially of all time, after its release on Wednesday.
Osborne described its release as "a huge day for the British film industry" in an interview, above.
"We fought very hard as a government to get 'Star Wars' made in Britain," he said.
People have reacted predictably to Osborne's mention.
George Osborne gets a credit at the end of Star Wars. The Dark Side has won.— Jon Croker (@joncroker) December 17, 2015
I don't mind that George Osborne is mentioned in the Star Wars credits, I just wish they'd given him his full title of Sith Lord in waiting— Lucy Loves Lace (@vadgeofhonour) December 17, 2015
The only thing I hated about the new #StarWars? They credited George Osborne in the "Special Thanks" bit.

George Osborne and Ed Vasey are personally thanked, at the top of a short list, at the end of Star Wars: Force Awakens— Ben Berry (@cllrbenberry) December 17, 2015
On Wednesday, George Osborne was apparently booed at the London premiere of the movie.
The Chancellor and David Cameron were both present at the event in Leicester Square as director JJ Abrams and many of the cast attended the British opening.
Mr Abrams welcomed the Prime Minister, who was politely applauded, but Mr Osborne came under fire when he was praised by the movie director - for helping secure the Lucasfilm production to the UK.
