Why invest in Pixar?

Pixar was purchased by Disney in 2006 at a valuation of more than $7.4 billion (around £5.4 billion). Its latest two films, Luca (2021) and Soul (2020) were both released on Disney+. They were both well received by critics and the media. Its latest film to be released in theatres was Onward (2020) which grossed $141.4 million worldwide (around £104 million). This was significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, as cinemas were closed within two weeks of its release.

Disney took a significant hit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. It was forced to close all of its resorts and theme parks, as well as halt any cruises. The closure of cinemas impacted the release of its films, and forced it to start producing films almost exclusively at crew members’ homes. Despite this, Disney just kept swimming, and its stock has recovered well. The company has several upcoming releases and its streaming service, Disney+ reportedly had 116 million subscribers in July 2021. The question is, will it go to infinity...and beyond?
