In a move that shocked no one, Disney
The original has grossed $635 million in worldwide ticket sales since its December debut. For Disney, Chronicles has become a slice of redemption after the company failed to play a bigger role in The Lord of the Rings trilogy's success. Most of those spoils went to Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation Time Warner
The fantasy world of the Pevensie siblings gives Disney another live-action workhorse to return its film studio to theatrical glory. A sequel to its smash hit The Pirates of the Caribbean will hit a multiplex near you this summer. Pirates and Chronicles will likely be blockbuster bookends for Disney, in the same vein that Time Warner feasted on having Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.
The proposed pairing of Disney and Stock Advisor pick Pixar
Yes, Disney's back. The share price may still be trading in the mid-$20s, but the company's prospects have rarely been brighter. It took a division of the entire company over at Viacom
More optimism, too.
