Disney Is Making Sequels to “toy Story,” “frozen,” and “zootopia” to Bring Back the Glory Days of Animation!
Disney’s animation franchises are progressing quickly. The CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, revealed on a recent earnings call that Toy Story, Frozen, and Zootopia sequels are presently in production and would be released soon.
Today I m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises, Toy Story, FrozenandZootopia, the studio head said. This is a terrific illustration of how we’re relying on our unbeatable brands and franchises, and we’ll have more to say about these productions soon.
The announcement came in the wake of some sour news that will see a US$5.5 billion cost cut across all divisions, and the axing of 7,000 jobs at the House of Mouse. Regarding the creative teams employed during the creation process, no additional information was provided.
All three series were huge box office successes, with Frozen II bringing in an additional US$1.4 billion in 2019 over and above the US$1.2 billion the previous film made. Zootopia and Toy Story 4 each brought in more than $1 billion worldwide.
Disney’s most recent films have been little in compared to Pixar’s Lightyear and Strange World’s disastrous box office results. For instance, the latter bombed with less than US$74 million worldwide and was quickly added to the Disney+ slate just over a month after its theatrical debut. Encanto, in contrast, apparently did well on the streamer but only garnered a little over US$256 million internationally. Fans can anticipate Disney Animation’s Wish and Pixar’s Wish on the studio’s 2023 animation film slate.
