The Market Structure of Animation Studios, and What It Means For Disney Animation Studios In the midst of the holiday season, a group of firms plans the release of their next products, hoping to beat out all their competition and appeal to the maximum numbers of consumers as they spend time with their families. This group of firms is distributors of movies. Especially with the cancellation of school around the holidays, animated movie producers try to make a killing at the box office. Looking at the studios responsible for the films, Disney Animation Studios with Wreck-It Ralph is one of the newest flicks (“Walt Disney Animation Studios”). Disney Animation Studios has a reputation for classic movies, from the 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to the highest-grossing animated film of all time, The Lion King, in 1994 (“Box Office Mojo”), to Wreck-It Ralph’s current success.
His drawing hobby carried on into his teens and he created cartoons to be included in his yearbook. Walt attempted to join the army, but was not accepted. Disney found his calling when he entered the world of animation beginning with small ads and later expanding his horizons.

In its first two decades, Walt Disney Productions was a struggling cartoon studio that introduced the world to its most famous character ever, Mickey Mouse. Few believed in Disney’s vision at the time, but the smashing success of cartoons with sound and the first-ever full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in 1937 led, over the next three decades, to other animated classics including Pinocchio, nimbi, Cinderella, and Peter Pan, love action films such as Mary Poppins and The Love Bug, and television series like Davy Crockett. When Walt Disney died in 1966, he was considered the best-known person in the world. By then the company had expanded the Disney brand into film, television, consumer products, and Disneyland in southern California, its first theme park, where families could experience the magic of Disney in real life. After Walt’s death, Roy Disney took over as CEO and realized Walt’s dream of opening the 24,000-acre Walt Disney World theme park in Florida.

The Walt Disney Productions Inc. is one of the most successful family entertainment providers throughout the world. It is famous for its characters, home video and theme parks. Walt Disney started out as a young unknown illustrator in the early 1920’s. The first breakthrough of the small company took place in 1928, when the cartoon producers introduced the first cartoon with sound and the new star Mickey Mouse.

This segment easily generates the most revenue and is the most valuable to Disney’s management for future growth as evidenced by EPCOT. The theme parks and resorts segment has been the subject of much of the focus over the past several reporting periods. The main problem seems to be the low or zero growth in attendance over the last decade while their competitors have grown by 5% annually. Analysts have a rather poor outlook for the future and view the market as fully saturated by 25 major theme parks already in existence. The main
