Walt Disney sold a record number of cinema tickets in 2019
The American entertainment group Walt Disney has already sold $ 7.67 billion in cinema tickets worldwide this year. The company thus beats its own record from 2016, when the counter at the end of the year stood at $ 7.61 billion.
It seems that this year Disney will be well above the old record: with Frozen 2, the Maleficent-sequel and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the studio has three major film projects on the roll.
Disney has been the owner of Fox since this year, but the successes mainly come from their own stable. Three Disney films already crossed the $ 1 billion mark this year: Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel and Aladdin.
The most recent film, the remake of The Lion King, is also heading towards that milestone. Analysts also expect Toy Story 4 from Disney subsidiary Pixar to generate around 1 billion euros.
