Market share of animation film distributors 2010-2019

The Walt Disney Company topped the list as the leading animated film distributor with 27.5 percent market share between 2010 and 2019, followed by the Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures International.

Beyond Disney

'The Jungle Book' has generated nearly 15 total admissions in France since its original theatrical release in 1968, which makes it the most popular Disney animated movie since 1945. While Disney animated films have paved the way for successful animated films in the cinema, the most popular films in France between 2014 and 2018 came from Universal Studios. Respectively 6.66 and 5.75 million moviegoers indeed watched 'Minions' and 'Despicable Me 3' on the big screen in France.

For young and old alike

While the number of animated films released in theatres is slowly increasing, those films are no longer the prerogative of children and the public is diversifying. In 2019, 27.8 percent of the general audience of animated movies were aged between 25 and 49 years old in France and more than 20 percent of the audience distribution was made up of people of higher socio-professional categories.
