Disney’s Challenges

In stark contrast, Disney’s latest release, ‘Luca,’ marks the culmination of its efforts to navigate the challenges of releasing Pixar films during the pandemic era.

Despite debuting in 1,390 theaters, ‘Luca’ struggled to find its footing, grossing a mere $550,000 with a per-screen average of $395.

These lackluster figures mirror the underwhelming performances of previous releases such as ‘Soul’ and ‘Turning Red,’ highlighting the challenges faced by the industry amidst the ongoing global pandemic.
