pandemic box office

There’s nothing better to inject some life into the pandemic box office than a little bit of Disney magic. The Disney catalog joined Universal films in playing in the few theaters that are still open while the majority of the country’s 5,900 theaters remain closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Disney’s Zootopia led the pandemic box office this week, followed closely by Marvel’s The Avengers, both taking in grosses in the $200,000 range — still meager earnings for the struggling box office.

Zootopia Sequels

It’s been nearly three years since Walt Disney Animation released Zootopia.
