Disney Studios Q3 Content Sales, Licensing Revenue, Income Falls

The Walt Disney Co. Aug. 12 said its studio “content sales/licensing and other” business segment saw third-quarter revenue of $1.7 billion, down 23% from revenue of $2.2 billion during the previous-year period. Operating income decreased 58% to $132 million, from operating income of $314.2 million last year.

Disney said the decrease in operating income was due to lower home entertainment and theatrical distribution results. The decrease in home entertainment was due to lower unit sales of new-release titles, reflecting the performance of Raya and the Last Dragon and Soul in the current quarter compared with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Frozen II, Onward, Call of the Wild and Ford v. Ferrari in the prior-year quarter, along with lower catalog sales.

Disney’s first Premier Access release, Mulan, is the studio’s top-selling new release in 2021 with $4.4 million in combined SDVD/Blu-ray Disc unit sales.

Notably, Soul was released free to Disney+ subscribers on Christmas Day 2020, and made available on packaged media March 23. Raya and the Last Dragon was offered into traditional retail channels on May 18 — two months after its box office/Disney+ debut.

Disney reiterated that movies available for distribution in the home entertainment window have been impacted by the production delays and fewer theatrical releases since the onset of the pandemic.

The decrease in theatrical distribution results was primarily due to higher marketing expense for future releases and lower operating income from titles in release. Cruella was released in the current quarter, whereas there were no titles released in the prior-year quarter.

Nielsen: Disney’s ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Dominated Weekly Movie Streaming Through June 6

What a difference “free” makes.

Disney/Pixar’s original movie Raya and the Last Dragon dominated streaming on household televisions the week ended June 6, according to new data from Nielsen.

The title, which was initially released concurrently in theaters and on subscription streaming service Disney+ (for $29.99 purchase) in March — and then for free in June, topped all original movies, TV shows and licensed shows with more than 1 billion minutes. That trumped Netflix original series “Who Killed Sara?” with 206 million minutes, and licensed show “Dirty John” with 761 million minutes.

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Stomps to Top Spot on Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong easily debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended June 19.

Given the scarcity of major new disc releases the past few weeks, the monster showdown, which earned $100.1 million at the domestic box office, sold nearly 10 times as many copies as its nearest competitor.

The Godzilla/Kong dominance was actually more pronounced considering a three-movie collection grouping Godzilla vs. Kong with franchise predecessors Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island debuted at No. 4 on the overall disc chart and No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart. About 54% of the 3-pack’s sales came from an exclusive DVD edition available at Walmart.

The disc champ the previous four weeks, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon, slipped to No. 2 on the overall disc chart and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart.

No. 3 overall and No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart was a release from earlier in the year making a surge, Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984.

The No. 5 overall disc seller (No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart) was Warner’s live-action/animation hybrid family comedy Tom & Jerry.

The No. 4 Blu-ray seller was Paramount’s 4K-led Indiana Jones 4-Movie Collection, which slid to No. 9 on the overall disc sales chart.

The only other newcomer in the top 20 for the week was Lionsgate’s sci-fi drama Voyagers, which debuted at No. 7 overall and No. 8 on the Blu-ray chart.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 66% of total Godzilla vs. Kong unit sales (44% regular Blu-ray and 22% 4K Ultra HD), 54% for Voyagers (40% Blu-ray and 14% 4K).

The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended June 20 had Godzilla vs. Kong at No. 1, pushing Lionsgate’s City of Lies to No. 2.

The Redbox-exclusive Rogue Hostage rose a spot to No. 3, followed at No. 4 by Voyagers. Tom & Jerry dropped three spots to No. 5.

‘Raya’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Fourth Week; ‘Indiana Jones’ Grabs No. 2 Blu-ray Spot

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon remained No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended June 12.

It’s the fourth week in the top spot for the animated fantasy, though a couple of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray catalog titles scrambled the top 10 a bit.

The No. 3 overall disc seller was Paramount’s June 8 re-release of its collection of the four “Indiana Jones” movies, headlined by a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition, which accounted for 91.6% of the boxed set’s total sales (8.1% were of the regular Blu-ray edition). Since nearly all the set’s sales were of Blu-ray formats, it was No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, where it sold 96.9% as many copies as top-selling Raya.

The No. 3 Blu-ray seller, and No. 6 overall, was Sony Pictures’ 2005 anime film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, newly released in a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version that accounted for 98.7% of the title’s sales for the week.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s live-action/animation hybrid Tom & Jerry remained the No. 2 overall disc seller for the fourth week in a row, though it slipped to No. 4 in Blu-ray Disc sales after three weeks as the runner-up on that chart.

Rounding out the overall top five were Paramount’s A Quiet Place at No. 4, and Lionsgate’s original John Wick at No. 5.

The Blu-ray chart No. 5 was Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking, which was No. 7 on the overall disc chart — down from the third ranking on both charts a week earlier.

The only other newcomer in the overall top 20 was Lionsgate’s City of Lies at No. 17, though it fared better on the Blu-ray chart at No. 8, with 58% of its total unit sales coming in the high-def format. Produced by Saban Films and based on the book LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan, the film follows the investigation into the infamous murder of iconic rap artist Notorious B.I.G. Johnny Depp stars as a determined LAPD detective who teams up with a journalist (Forest Whitaker) in search of the truth.

‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Takes No. 1 Disc Sales Spot in May, No. 3 for the Year

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for May 2021 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service. The animated fantasy had been the top weekly seller the final two weeks of the month, which was enough to push it to N0. 3 on the list of top sellers for the entire year.

The No. 2 seller in May was Warner’s live-action/animation hybrid Tom & Jerry, which came out on disc the same day as Raya and was the runner-up to it on the weekly charts.

The No. 3 and No. 4 sellers were also released on disc in May. No. 3 was Universal’s The Marksman, a Liam Neeson actioner released May 11, while No. 4 was Warner’s crime drama The Little Things.

The April top seller, Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984, dropped to No. 5 for May. Another new release to heavily feature the Wonder Woman character, the animated superhero movie Justice Society: World War II, also from Warner, was the No. 6 May seller.

Paramount’s 2018 thriller A Quiet Place jumped to No. 9 in May, up from No. 103 in April, thanks to fans preparing for the sequel that hit theaters May 28.

The arrival of Raya shuffled the top 10 titles on the year-to-date chart a bit, though the top two titles remained the same, with Universal’s The Croods: A New Age maintaining the top spot, and Wonder Woman 1984 at No. 2.

Sony Pictures’ Monster Hunter slipped one spot to No. 4, while Disney’s Soul dropped two spots to No. 6.

In between them, taking over the year’s No. 5 spot, was the faith-based I Can Only Imagine, a catalog title released by Lionsgate in 2018. Its appearance in the annual top 10 is a bit of a surprise given it hasn’t been in the top 10 sellers for any month of the year.

Accordingly, Universal’s News of the World and Greenland also slid two spots each, to No. 7 and No. 8, respectively. Warner’s Justice League dropped one spot to No. 9, while Warner’s The Meg remained No. 10.

The new arrivals pushed Paramount’s Love and Monsters and Warner’s Tenet off the year’s top 10 list.

‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Dominates Disc Sales Charts

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended May 22.

The new animated fantasy, which earned $48.6 million during a domestic theatrical run in which it was also available for a surcharge on Disney+, led a sizeable slate of chart newcomers during the week, but still outsold its closest competitor by a nearly three-to-one margin. However, the feat wasn’t enough to put Raya on the top 20 of the DEG’s weekly Watched at Home chart, representatives for which cited the film’s status as an untrackable Premier Access title as the reason it wasn’t listed despite its arrival via traditional retail channels.

The No. 2 disc seller on both the overall disc and Blu-ray charts was Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Tom & Jerry, the live-action/animation hybrid that earned $45.6 million in its domestic box office run.

The previous week’s top selling disc overall, Universal Pictures’ Liam Neeson-starrer The Marksman, dropped to No. 3 on both charts (it was the No. 2 Blu-ray the previous week).

Warner’s Justice Society: World War II was No. 4. The direct-t0-video animated superhero adventure had been the top Blu-ray seller a week earlier and No. 2 overall.

No. 5 on both charts was Lionsgate’s Above Suspicion, a true crime drama starring Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones” as an informant in a small Kentucky town who falls in love with her FBI handler.

Other newcomers among the top 20 disc sellers include Lionsgate’s Minari at No. 6 overall (No. 8 on the Blu-ray chart); Paramount’s Cosmic Sin at No. 8 overall (No. 11 Blu-ray); Sony Pictures’ The Father at No. 10 (No. 27 Blu-ray); and Paramount’s Star Trek: Lower Decks — Season 1 at No. 16 overall (No. 6 Blu-ray).

Minari is a drama about a Korean family that moves to a farm in Arkansas, and won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Youn Yuh-jung. Cosmic Sin is a sci-fi thriller with Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo as soldiers who lead an attack on an alien race to preemptively stop a war.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 70% of first-week Raya unit sales, with 13% of its total coming from the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version. Blu-ray accounted for 42% of Tom & Jerry sales, compared with 48% for Above Suspicion, 27% for Minari, 42% for Cosmic Sin, 27% for The Father, and 70% for “Star Trek: Lower Decks.”
