Let’s face it, the chances of this happening are high enough even now that the pandemic is no longer such a major factor.
The public is becoming more and more accustomed to living room cinemaand if titles such as Encanto and Eternals were excellent examples (both have had a great response with the domestic public), other data could also support this theory and its validity for Lightyear.
After all, IndieWire tells us, according to Google Trends, there seems to be more research investigating Lightyear’s Disney + debut than Lightyear’s showtimes in theaters, and on the day of the arrival of the Pixar film in theaters there were more searches than ever with the terms “Lightyear streaming” (a similar thing had happened, for example, also with Encanto, but two days after its debut with Disney +).
It seems therefore that, if the 50.58 million takings that Lightyear brought home during its opening weekend in the United States and Canada did not make Disney jump for joy, however, it remains to wait for the arrival in streaming to be able to decree the actual success of Lightyear.
