It should come as no surprise to anyone, but the Disney corporation is fucking rich. While the company has been setting box-office records for the past few years between both the Star Wars and Marvel brands, 2019 was a particularly noteworthy year for film earnings. Not only did the Disney corporation break $11.1 billion in gross by itself, but its Fox acquisition also brought in another $2 billion on top of that.
Walt Disney Studios posted its global gross for 2019 and the results see a ludicrous $13.2 billion at the international box-office. If Avengers: Endgame wasn’t enough (the film has gone on to become the highest-grossing film of all time), Disney had an additional five films top over $1 billion in individual earnings. These include Captain Marvel, Toy Story 4, Frozen 2, The Lion King, and Aladdin. Talk about making bank.
This is particularly noteworthy because Disney has now become the first studio in history to cross the $10 billion mark globally for gross in a single year. I’m pretty sure you can guess who broke the previous records for earnings in years prior -hint, the company’s mascot is a mouse-. It seems there is no stopping the Disney corporation.
