‘Lightyear’ Launches With $5.2 Million in Preview Box Office Earnings

Pixar’s “Lightyear” is launching this weekend with $5.2 million already in preview earnings at the box office, reports.

Box office analysts expect “Lightyear” will reach between $70 and $85 million at the domestic box office this opening weekend. Globally, it’s expected to reach $135 million. The film is banned in 14 Middle Eastern and Asian countries due to a same-sex kiss between two secondary characters.

  1. I can’t help but wonder, with Disney loosing over $220 Billion in value, also loosing Reedy Creek which is estimated at lifetime $300 Billion in value, is it really worth potentially $100 Million in lost movie sales to put in any unnecessary plot element for any reason?

    How does any plot element advance the story, enhance the enjoyment for the largest number of paying customers, and promote profit for that for-profit organization?

    What’s best for Disney? Losses and reduced value or solid, high quality products & services that benefit the company’s ability to stay in business and continue providing goods & services?
