2015 was a highly prolific year for Walt Disney, raking in an astounding $5.851B. However, the numbers for Disney have not stopped growing—after the release of Doctor Strange, the studio exceeded all expectations and crossed the $6B mark. Today, Walt’s worldwide box office has reached $6.07B.
The $6B threshold has only been crossed once in the history of film making, when Universal made $6.89B last September (2015). However, there is still time before the ledgers close for this year, which means Disney has a chance to top the 2015 record. Movie lovers have Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana to look forward to on November 23, and the long-awaited Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is expected on Dec. 16.
After its release on October 20th, Marvel’s Doctor Strange raked in $325.4M through Sunday. On a worldwide scale the movie made $240.4M so far, with hefty hauls in China, Korea, the UK and Russia so far.
A few other important Disney stars of 2016 are Captain America: Civil War ($1.15B); Zootopia ($1.023B); and The Jungle Book ($966M)...
