The “Cars” Franchise makes $10 Billion

The “Cars” Franchise makes $10 Billion

$10 Billion People!

Disney’s hugely successful animation feature has crossed the $10 billion mark in total retail sales.

Would You have guessed that a single animated movie could generate such huge gains? I know I didn’t.

$10 Billion Doesn’t Even Make “Cars” the Richest

Even though the whole “Cars” franchise has made $10 billion, legendary character Mickey Mouse generates $9 Billion a year for Disney alone.

“Toy Story” is one of the most profitable franchise for Disney although surprisingly it still lags behind “Cars” and Mickey Mouse generating a measly $4 billion a year.

John Lasseter

Chief creative officer at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation John Lasseter, has this to say about Cars 2 and the $10 Billion in merchandise sales

“It’s pretty staggering. It’s not why we make the movie but it is pretty exciting that around the world Cars merchandise sold over $10bn dollars worth.”

Astounding – $29 Billion

Disney is expected to generate $29 Billion from the combined sales of merchandise from their film franchises.

Do You think Cars 2 will become the highest earner for Disney?

To Infinity and beyond Toy Story 3

Tom Hanks, the voice behind Sheriff Woody recently sat down with the BBC to promote his new film, Larry Crowne. But that’s not the part you want to know.

Hanks Talks Toy Story 4

During the interview Tim Muffett asks Hanks about the possibility of Toy Story 4, which he replies.

I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think they’re working on it now. There you go.

In The Works?

Although Mr Hanks announced that there will be another movie there has been no confirmation of this from the studio behind the franchise.

No Clues

Tom Hanks didn’t give much more away in the interview and most importantly he didn’t say if he would be reprising his role as Woody, (could there be a Toy Story Movie without him) with no further information available at this time you should bookmark our site and keep checking back for the latest updates at StayToonedin.com

Toy Story “Hawaiian Vacation”

You won’t be able to catch toy Story 4 any time soon, but in the mean time why not watch Toy Story “Hawaiian Vacation” as it follows on from Toy Story 3.

Currently being shown before screenings of Cars 2 in cinemas

All’s well that ends well

With the bittersweet tear jerking end to Toy Story 3 it seemed the perfect place to leave the trilogy.

Is that Sheriff Woody or Clint Eastwood ?

Toy Story Toys like you’ve never seen them before.

Get a load of these Toy Story toys not just designed but literally unleashed by Luis Eduardo Vargas Montoya.

Pixar Update: Art of Cars 2 and Toy Story Hawaiian Vacation

Cars 2 and Toy Story Toons

A whole batch of stuff were added to the Pixar site with the inclusion of artwork from Cars 2 and more on the Toy Story short Hawaiian Vacation.

Now this is a one good job of an update. One little click in the Feature Films section  and you will be taken to exclusive content from Cars 2. All of which is included in the The Art of… book that is due to be released this month. Something that I suggest is worth a buy but check out Upcoming Pixar & Planet Pixar’s Review for a second opinion.

Toy Story Toons

A new page has been added to the Pixar site in the frenzy of updates featuring the brand new “Toy Story Toons” short that will be released with Cars 2 this summer.

Check out the preview by visiting the Short Films section of the Pixar website.

Cars 2 (and Hawaiin Vacation) open June 24!
