The “Cars” Franchise makes $10 Billion
$10 Billion People!
Disney’s hugely successful animation feature has crossed the $10 billion mark in total retail sales.
Would You have guessed that a single animated movie could generate such huge gains? I know I didn’t.
$10 Billion Doesn’t Even Make “Cars” the Richest
Even though the whole “Cars” franchise has made $10 billion, legendary character Mickey Mouse generates $9 Billion a year for Disney alone.
“Toy Story” is one of the most profitable franchise for Disney although surprisingly it still lags behind “Cars” and Mickey Mouse generating a measly $4 billion a year.
“It’s pretty staggering. It’s not why we make the movie but it is pretty exciting that around the world Cars merchandise sold over $10bn dollars worth.”
Astounding – $29 Billion
Disney is expected to generate $29 Billion from the combined sales of merchandise from their film franchises.
