Disney posts second best year ever at the box office in 2018

BURBANK, California (KTRK) -- Walt Disney Studios is celebrating its second biggest year of any in the history of the box office.

The company made more than $7 billion globally in 2018, becoming the only studio to ever reach that high of a number.

Disney was so successful that the only studio that could beat it last year is Disney in 2016.

That year, the company posted $7.6 billion, setting a new global record.

Analysts said Disney was helped by the number of blockbusters it released last year, including Marvel's 'Black Panther' and 'Avengers: Infinity War.'

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of this ABC station.
