The world’s previous one-year record earnings for the year was $ 7.6 billion, set by Disney in 2016. Disney is the only company that has ever exceeded $ 7 billion in a year. "Data-reactid =" 20 "> Disney Earned According To Variety, the worldwide box office record for one year was $ 7.6 billion, which was set up by Disney in 2016. Disney is the only company that ever has sales of $ 7 billion achieved per year.

Disney is unlikely to build on its incredible success of 2019, in which it was responsible for seven of the ten most successful feature films and had sequels in two major franchises: "Toy Story" and "Frozen" as well as a Star Wars episode. "The Rise of Skywalker" to end the year.

It looks like it will take a surprisingly big success or two before Disney closes its ticket sales in the theater in 2019 and far less well-known franchisees hit the market.

No Star Wars

Marvel franchise – less blockbusters

Disney will have the advantage of two Marvel franchise films – although there may not be a draw for "Endgame" either – nor will it have the great appeal of the other two Marvel films from 2019, "Captain Marvel" and "Spider- Man: Far from home. "

One of the Marvel films is "Black Widow", which will be shown in cinemas on May 1st. The film is about the former KGB assassin Natasha Romanoff in a film between "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War".

The other is a great unknown in terms of popularity, as it introduces a whole new group of superheroes to the Marvel universe. The film is called "The Eternals" and follows a new immortal alien race. While Disney has to hope that fans will reach a new group of characters with this new franchise, the first version brings Starpower, including Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.

Pixar

In addition to the Star Wars and Marvel features, the Pixar films were the third pillar of the successful Disney tripod in the past decade. Last year's "Toy Story 4" was a big part of the studio's success in 2019, as more than half of Disney's box office sales in the past year came from either Marvel or Pixar films.

Both Pixar films in 2020 are more new stories than sequels. Therefore, it is difficult to guess what they will look like, although Pixar originals have not worked out as well in the past as sequels.

Pixar's "Soul" will be released in June and features a teacher with a Jamie Foxx voice whose soul is separated from his body. Quest Love and Tina Fey are also in the film.

Pixar's other film this year will be "Onward" in March. It looks like a classic movie about two brothers – creatures that look like trolls – who have to fix a wrong spell to spend another day with their father has died.

With "Mulan" Disney will make another attempt to convert a previously animated feature into "live action". With "Aladdin" it was possible to transform animated characters into real ones in 2019.

Other Disney films this year include:

  • Stephen Spielberg's adaptation of the classic Broadway musical "Westside Story".
  • A recording of Jack London's "The Call of the Wild" with Harrison Ford.
  • "Artemis Fowl", based on the book series by Eoin Colfer.
  • The King & # 39; s Man, "a prequel to" Kingsman: Secret Service ".
