Disney's Frozen at $1B and counting

  • Frozen passed the $1B in global box office receipts this weekend as the film continues to play well in various international markets.
  • The movie is now the most successful non-sequel animated film of all-time and only the 7th Disney (DIS) film to ever cross the billion-dollar mark.
  • Frozen isn't ready to thaw out just yet: The movie is favored to win two Academy Awards tonight and debuts in Japan later this month.
  • What to watch: The success of Frozen sets up the potential for a vibrant Disney franchise with theme park and consumer product tie-ins.

    A made for Broadway movie...only a matter of time before Frozen follows The Lion King with a long, long run as a musical.

     

    Long (DIS) and looking for the stock to keep moving higher.

    Go DIS! My only concern is if the middle class get's hit hard by the macros, parks and resorts revenues might suffer. Something to watch.

    This is something to keep an eye on. Good call, nautor42.

     

    (DIS) has been able to navigate through the last few years. I believe that they will continue to find ways to draw first-time visitors and repeat visitors.
    A few years back they put together some resort deals that included dining plans. My family took advantage of this and had a wonderful time at Disney World. Our return trip the following year was fantastic as well.

     

    First rate company IMO.

    I've only had to strangle my children 12 times for ceaselessly singing the songs from this damn movie.

     

    DIS certainly hit out of the park with this one.

    In related news, Zuckerberg offered $100 billion for the movie rights explaining that at least a billion people would see it eventually explaining "Things that get to a billion users are inherently valuable"

    I've been wanting to get long DIS for a while now but always stopped myself thinking it's a bit over-stretched.... I just need to get in now and let it sit for the next 40yrs.
