Raya and the Last Dragon Wins Box office for Third Straight Weekend with $5.1M

Raya and the Last Dragon comes in first at the Box Office for the third consecutive week. Though movie theaters are just beginning to reopen their doors nearly a year after the global shutdown due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Disney’s new animated feature film, Raya and the Last Dragon managed to snag the #1 spot at the box office, earning $71.2 Million globally since its release.

Domestically, the film only brought in $5.1 million over the course of the weekend, but that is much better than most films that have tried to brave a theater release with a majority of theaters still shuttered or in this case refused to screen the film after Disney’s refusal to offer exhibitors a larger cut of box office revenue. Theater chains such as Cinemark and others refused to screen the film due to the conflict over earnings.

Regardless, the film has been performing well, and it is currently unknown how many Disney+ subscribers bought into the $29.99 Premier Access digital release, which may swing the numbers in Disney’s favor. The film was said to cost the animation studios around $100 Million to make and produce, but taking the pandemic into account and realizing a good amount of the film was recorded and finished from the homes of the cast and crew, we would say the movie is still a crowning achievement for Disney and we can’t wait for audiences to love Raya just as much as we did!
