Disney Becomes First Studio to Earn $10 Billion at the Box Office in a Single Year

Disney Becomes First Studio to Earn $10 Billion at the Box Office in a Single Year

After a string of massive blockbusters, Disney has so far had the biggest year of any studio in box office history.

At the time of writing, its gross total comes to an eye-watering $9.997 billion, and is expected to cross the $10 billion over the next day.

Frozen 2 alone earned them a sweet $919.7 million globally. The new milestone will mean that its the first eve studio to accomplish the feat.

Disney already beat its own record in 2016, when it became, once again, the studio with the highest yearly box office total, with $7.6 billion.

Even more impressively, the 2019 total for Disney takings doesn't include any films that were released by 20th Century Fox, which Disney acquired in March 2019 - if those numbers were included, it would mean that the corporation would be closer to the $12 billion mark.

For a quick recap - here are a few of Disney's releases from this year. The biggest earner, is obviously Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame. Not only did it push Disney's overall turnover up, but it was also the highest-grossing film of all time, taking $2.798 billion worldwide.

That means that it will not only become the the first studio to have a ridiculous five $1 billion movies in one year, Disney will most likely have seven of them by the end of 2019. Not bad going.

There's not long to go until the Skywalker saga of Disney's Star Wars comes to an end, with the release of The Rise of Skywalker arriving on 19 December.

But does the film mark the end of the road for Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) within the space opera franchise?

As it stands, nothing is set in stone, although if you're hoping to see Boyega's character Finn in any of the current or planned Disney+ spin-off shows - including the wildly popular The Mandalorian - we've got some bad news for you.

When asked by Variety if he'd be willing to sign up for any of the TV projects, he said: "You ain't going to Disney+ me!"

Looks like that's settled that, then!
