After all, ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ may not have managed to usurp the throne of most-watched film of 2022 from ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ (it would only need one more day), but It’s clear that no one is going to cough on Disney over last year’s collection… once again., It has been consistently earning more than any other production company in the top 10 since 2016.
This past year, Disney topped the most watched movies: ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ (2), ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ (4), ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ ‘ (6), ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ (8), ‘Lightair’ (18), ‘Death on the Nile’ (32), ‘Barbarian’ (59). Together they add up to $4.9 billion, two of them in the United States alone.
You can do without Star Wars
As a result of these results, it is significant that Disney has not produced Star Wars films since 2019, once considered its most powerful franchise. It’s true that three films in the new trilogy have slipped into the top 10 in a row One of the most watched films in each year of release, but the fact that the company hasn’t lost its pre-eminent status in the past three years without a ‘Star Wars’ release shows that Disney has other options to choose from. There are aces.
The most notorious of them is Marvel. 2016, the year these results began to rear their heads, had Captain America: Civil War as the No. 1 most watched movie of the year. In later years we might see a bombardment of true-image remakes of house classics like ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016, Rank 5), ‘Beauty and the Beast’, in addition to the occasional hit from Pixar and Disney animation . ‘ (2017, position 2) and, in a stellar 2019, ‘Aladdin’ (9) and ‘The Lion King’ (2)
what’s to come
for now, The Not Much Discussed ‘Star Wars’ Involvement As An Episodic Actor In Upcoming Disney CollectionsAt least not until we have a box office crash that might never come. But it is more difficult to predict when the next premiere of the franchise will come (in principle, what Taika Waititi is preparing, but there is no date yet). In the same way, the sheen of Disney remakes seems to be fading: they’re still being made, but it’s pertinent that ‘Pinocchio’ has come straight to Disney+.
This year, Disney has got a very important actor in its catalog: ‘Avatar’. While a future ‘Avatar 3’ will be a few years away, given the way the company’s machinery works, it would be strange if Disney didn’t consider spin-offs and other forms of exploitation. The second is what James Cameron consents to and the director has the power to antagonize the alien siren songs of Fox’s current owners. And there’s always Marvel’s trump card: There are three premieres scheduled for 2023 (“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” and “The Marvels”), so Disney rules for now. far from extinction
