The Walt Disney Studios have crossed the threshold of $5 billion for its annual global box office. This is the third consecutive year that Disney has reached this milestone. Starting January 1st through November 29th, Disney’s box office receipts brought in $5.0031 billion globally. In the United States alone, Disney brought in $1.7633 billion. #3.2398 billion was made overseas.
This year has been a very good year for The Walt Disney Studios. Four of the top nine highest-grossing movies of the year have come from the studio. This includes Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The year isn’t done for The Walt Disney Studios though. Disney-Pixar’s Coco just released over Thanksgiving and is doing very well. It was just named Best Animated Feature by the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also be released on December 15th. Both of these will contribute to a strong end of the year for The Walt Disney Studios.
