Why 'Lightyear's' Failure To Launch Isn't Tied To Disney's Streaming Strategy

Disney’s approach to streaming has long been a hot button issue over the last year and some blame it for the poor performance of “Lightyear” at last weekend’s box office. The argument is that people stayed home because they knew the movie would be coming to Disney+ within the next few months, lessening initial demand for theatrical viewing. In reality “Lightyear” is a movie that tried to be so many different things it ended up outsmarting itself and that’s why it made less in its initial weekend. In a rare misstep, “Lightyear” was mis-marketed by Disney, with the company not being able to explain how it fit into the “Toy Story” universe and connected to the overall franchise. It is easy to blame the streaming element, but the marketing, the creative choices and a higher parental rating all come into play first.

Disney: Abundant Uncertainty
