If there is anything that the world of cinema has taught us in 2019, it’s that Disney well and truly does own the entertainment world – and our wallets along with it. Just take a look at all the highest-grossing movies of the year and you have the likes of Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Toy Story, Spider-Man: Far from Home, Captain Marvel and Aladdin that have all crossed the $1 Billion mark at the global box office. All but one of those movies, Spider-Man, are Disney-owned movies and even then it’s still a part of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (Future films though? Maybe not).
It’s those Marvel films in particular that have been a massive money-spinner for the House of Mouse. Yes, their own movies along with Pixar and Star Wars are all proving to be successful, but the massive box office record-setting by Marvel is what is really setting the company apart and one of the key reasons that they keep dominating in pop culture.
