Walt Disney Studio is currently the biggest movie studio in Hollywood. Disney have been dominating the movie industry completely for past couple of years. Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, Live action and Disney Animation are bringing billions of dollar at the box office. The phenomenal roster Disney have created in movie is beyond excellence. But Disney complete monopoly might get other studio and movie goers into trouble.
Disney bought Fox with humongous 71.3 billion dollar. Initially the bid was 52.4 billion but Comcast counter prompted Disney to go big. For the past couple of years, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar has been huge money maker for Disney. With the Addition of Avatar, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Planet of the Apes series Disney will further increase their box office performance.
Currently Disney have all five highest grossing movie of all time. With Fox acquisition, Disney now owns both Avatar and Titanic. I know because of huge strong fan base, exceptional good movies and phenomenal marketing strategy Disney have made them climbed into top.
With Disney Streaming service coming this November 12, they would be hoping to dominate the streaming service as well. Disney have Mandalorian , Marvel TV series and others on their belt. We still are kept on the dark on the future of Marvel Netflix show. Apart from those, Disney+ will have Pixar, Star Wars movies and Marvel stuff.
In the current scenario Marvel have been their big guns. Avengers EndGame is breaking records at the box office. Avengers EndGame is the second highest grossing movie of all time. Currently Marvel Studio have five highest grossing movie of all time. With 22 movies Marvel Studio have grossed more that 20 billion at worldwide box office.
Apart from Marvel Studio Pixar has been another big Studio that has been producing excellent movie and bringing huge amount at box office. Incredibles 2, Toy Story 3 and Finding Dory are the three movies to join the billion dollar club. Pixar movies have grossed 13 billion at worldwide box office.
Lucasfilm have had ups and down at the box office. The Force Awakens and Rogue one have been both critically and commercially successful. But the audience were divided with The last Jedi. The movie received mixed review but was still able to gross billion dollar at worldwide box office. Solo A Star Wars Story was bombed at the box office. Nobody wanted Han Solo movie without Harrison Ford. However the excitement around The Rise of Skywalker is very high.
Disney Animation have 2 movies on billion dollar club. Frozen is the highest grossing animated movie of all time. Disney Animation have grossed nearly six billion dollar at worldwide box office.
With Fox Acquisition Disney is getting bigger. The number of movies releasing on single calendar year will increase exponentially. Regular movie goers are used to watching a Disney movie every month. But with many movies releasing in a single calendar year movie goers might get tired of Disney. It might not happen in couple a couple of years but its impact will be felt sooner or later.
Smaller movies are getting smashed by big blockbuster. Lets take an example: Long Shot was a fun and charming movie but it was crushed by Avengers EndGame at the box office. Studios are afraid of releasing smaller movies along with huge blockbuster movies. Disney Monopoly in Hollywood getting out of hand but its not there fault. They produce excellent movies, connect with the audience and bring excellent box office result.
