It would be interesting to see a table of Disney live action remakes after the Aladdin and Lion King runs. Especially a grand total line at the bottom of the chart. Aladdin will see a hefty profit. Lion King is looking massive.And how's Disney Studios doing (and comparing it with current competition)...

So, Aladdin is also a "mix", but a mix that has turned a profit, unlike the six DS movies preceding it.
And the bottom chart shows that no one really wanted more LEGOs or Pets. Godzilla has a really tough road to break even with so high a budget.
Adding one movie's profit to one that didn't make profit doesn't mean one can say "Hey, their movies make a profit." That's a tad misleading. For Disney Studios, some do. Most don't.*I’m guessing $1 billion between Dumbo and Aladdin isn’t too disastrous. Nowhere near what Disney wanted but least they’ve not last money?
Lion King will probably do $1 billion too
I mean, not that I'm an Aladdin 2019 stan by any stretch of the imagination (I still haven't seen it and probably won't), but it's passed the original and is one of the more successful live-action "reimaginings." Which, tangent by the way, is such a stupid name Box Office Mojo THEY'RE REMAKESYes, they can.
To hide the failures.
I figured it would do well, just as I believe lion king will. I hoped they would do poor, but it's way to low hanging fruit to not succeed. There are just way too many people who love those movies for them not to succeed. When the little Mermaid comes out it will be the same thing.Anyways. So it's doing better than I thought, considering just how awful it looked in the trailers.
Which bears repeating. Post theatrically 5 broke even/turned profit and two: Wrinkle and Nutcracker (probably soon to be three: Dumbo) did not.*In the theatrical window, excluding post-theatrical windows and merch.
Do you have a source for that? Nutcracker has *a lot* to make up for in the after-market to break even.Which bears repeating. Post theatrically 5 broke even/turned profit and two: Wrinkle and Nutcracker (probably soon to be three: Dumbo) did not.
It’s still a meh batting average and they hope to make more than that.
Sorry Nutcracker (and Wrinkle) DID NOT break even, nor will they ever.Do you have a source for that? Nutcracker has *a lot* to make up for in the after-market to break even.
