Less than a month ago, I reported that Disney had crossed the $5 billion mark in global box office sales. This was already a very impressive followup to last year’s record-setting $7.6 billion, but Disney wasn’t resting there and a last-minute push from Star Wars: The Last Jedi has pushed their 2017 total over $6 billion.

This late success makes Disney the first movie studio to cross $6 billion global and with an amazingly strong lineup of 2018 releases, it isn’t a stretch to say we may be back at $6 billion, or more this time next year.

Of course, this is all aside from the impending Disney purchase of Fox and the uncertain impact that will have on their box office total. For reference, according to Box Office Mojo, Fox is currently sitting at roughly $1 billion for 2017.

My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
