        They made negative 100 million at least, cable is dead and disney has its own streaming platform so their movies only go there, that streaming platform loses several billion dollars every year so nothing makes money there either

        I'm not sure how the advertising works but half of it is probably spent on their own properties, still I'm not sure everything can just all come out in the wash forever if they keep making garbage and failing

          The fact that Disney is staying the course and doubling down on all their woke shit even when it is bombing shows that their entertainment division is for propaganda, not profit. It can be propped up indefinitely by their profits from their other ventures.

          Merch will be hit next unless they hope to ride on legacy content forever, because no one is gonna buy merch of any of their new shit.

            That's the part I'm not so sure of. People are mistaken if they think one bad quarter or year or even decade can end something so monolithic as Disney. But what WILL kill them eventually is a generational shift in the perception of the brand.

            The nostalgia they've been cashing in on for decades is based on nearly unanimous approval of their previous works. The shit they're churning out now just isn't sticking like the old shit did. And they're undermining the value of some of their older works by going back to the same well just to make worse versions of the same stories. Old fans are being alienated, and they're not not making new ones to the same extent. There will be no big implosion. It'll be death by 1,000 cuts but eventually it will happen

      Too many people forget that Disney makes most of their money from merch and the parks. Their movies haven't been their bread and butter in decades.

      My understanding isn't great, but the short answer is that it's complicated.
      Disney is a huge conglomerate so they have both several sources of income, as well as massive war chest that they built over decades.
      Just from existing, their passive income probably exceeds $1m/day from film and merchandise licensing/residuals. Then their theme parks actually make a shit load of money when they aren't actively tanking them or hurt by a pandemic. They have several decades of box office domination where they made money hand over foot.
      So they have to lose a LOT of money to even be in the red for the year, never mind go bankrupt.

      The other big thing to understand is the way that the film industry has changed. All these companies pumping out these huge budget blockbusters didn't come out of nowhere. As long as they're profitable, they've very fricking profitable. If a film's marketing and production budget costs $400m for the sake of argument, and it makes $800m at the box office, they'd have roughly broken even. They then have home video sales and licensing deals and contracts etc that means that the film is now a source of increased passive income. And it's a blockbuster so everyone wants to see it, so it's pretty lucrative.
      If it makes $1bn at the box office, all that applies and they get an extra $100m or so in cash for "free".
      If it makes $1.5b, you're talking an extra $300m or thereabouts.
      If it makes $2b...
      You get the idea. Disney had several box office hits of the last decade. Those films are all still making a lot of money, as well as the money they made in cinemas. And they're also making money through merchandising. Frozen as a franchise has probably generated over a billion dollars without the film's performance.

      The final thing to understand is that disney is so big that a lot of a film's "costs" is money they're paying themselves. Things like licensing other characters from different franchises. Equipment and prop rental. Etc etc. So as a whole they don't lose out on that money even if departments do.
      So the question is less "how has disney not gone bankrupt?" and more "how has disney fricked up so badly that they're consistently in the red despite all this?"

    amazing how they make it so detailed rich yet lack any memorable styles, shots, contrast or angles, because they just do storyboarding as the fricking script and then use one bullshot as a reference for an entire scene theyll do in CGI
