Disney is absolutely OWNING the box office this year, and the numbers are staggering.
Disney’s worldwide box-office total for 2019 is already at a record $7.67 billion, more than any other movie studio has made in a single year. And it’s only July. The previous record of $7.61 billion was set in 2016, also by Disney.
They put out five of the six highest-grossing movies of the year: “Avengers: Endgame”, “Captain Marvel”, “Aladdin”, “The Lion King”, and “Toy Story 4”.
And they have three more HUGE movies on the way: “Frozen 2”, “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”, and “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker”.
On top of that, in November, they’re launching Disney+, the streaming service that’s expected to immediately become a serious Netflix competitor.
