3 Media Stocks in Focus: Disney’s ‘Frozen,’ Netflix Picks Up ‘Nikita,’ Dish Under Fire

Walt Disney Co. (NYSE:DIS): Disney is hoping its new animated feature film, Frozen, which debuts on Wednesday, will bring in profits similar to last year’s Wreck It Ralph which grossed $471 million. In recent years, Disney has been challenged to step up its game by competitors Dreamworks, Pixar, Blue Sky, and Illumination. As with most Disney movies, it’s expected that the majority of the profit in the wake of the film’s debut will stem from the various merchandise sold in years to come. According to a recent Forbes review of Frozen, the film is “a declaration of Disney’s renewed cultural relevance.”
