The premiere of Lightyear, the prequel to Toy Story, has not gone as Disney Pixar expected. The data already speak of a failure at the box office.
The first box office data Lightyear have come to light. It must be said that they are not positive at all. Especially considering that it is a prequel to toy story and that expectations were through the roof. The forecasts of disney-pixar they were much better and the specialized critics pointed out that we were in front of a good animated film. Also, animated films work quite well with the arrival of summer. However, the study has been disappointed with the first data.

Our national box office analyst TachyBox has revealed that the data is quite disappointing. Lightyear It would have raised just 5.2 million during the previews and the special screenings on Thursday in the United States. The result is, to say the least, shocking. Very worrying for the expectations that were in Disney Pixar. Keep in mind that Sonic 2: The Movie It made 6.25 million recently and it was an animated film. On the other hand, compared to Toy Story 4the latest installment in the saga of toys that move and talk raised up to 12 million in that time interval.
The results are even worse than those of ‘Morbius’
TaquiBox has made his estimate of how much he could earn during his first weekend in the United States and Lightyear It would be between 50 and 60 million dollars at the domestic box office. The data of the previous ones and the special passes of Thursday are so poor that it is even below the 5.7 million of a failure like Morbius and the 6 million dollars from another ridiculous collection like the one from Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets. The news, of course, is terrible.
Some believe that the failure of Lightyear in these early stages of launch is due to the ‘review-bombing’ that has been suffered by a certain sector of the public. That ‘review-bombing’ accused Disney Pixar of having included a homosexual relationship and a kiss between a same-sex couple in a children’s film. However, this should not be the only reason to explain the blockbuster hit of the film to which he gives voice. Chris Evans. Something else must have happened that we don’t understand. Perhaps, with the passing of days and weeks, we will see it from another perspective. Of course, it’s a real shame.
