Ever since we were kids there was always a gigantic rivalry between two titans of entertainment. Those being The Walt Disney Company and Pixar Animation Studios, both have amazing films that have left a major impact on our lives as well as our children’s lives, but which of these corners are New Jerseyans in?
Well, we may just have the answer according to a data survey conducted by Upgraded Points, New Jersey is marked for being Team Disney, while our Delaware and Pennsylvania neighbors sided with Pixar.
However, what about the overall outcome? Well, just over 54.7% of states chose Pixar over Disney leaving the other reported 44.2% with the mouse. The only state that was a tie between the two factions was Kentucky.
Now onto a more in-depth look at what this actually means. Well according to the report Pixar, despite being the most popular, is making less at the box office compared to Disney. Disney’s top earner is the 2019 release Frozen 2 bringing in 1.45 billion worldwide, meanwhile, Pixar’s top earner is 2018’s The Incredibles 2 is just shy sitting at 1.24 billion worldwide. So, Disney was winning in that aspect of money earned, but what about the quality of films?
Well, that’s where Pixar shines a bit more as the majority of respondents said that Pixar had a better storyline and cast. While Disney had a better soundtrack and happy endings. But what’s key here is which films get better over time and well 55% thought Disney Films actually get worse over time while 76% said Pixar films get better with time!
Of course, both have contributed massively to the film and animation industry and will continue to do so in the near future with Disney being one of the largest mass media companies in the world.
So, there’s no wonder why they’re New Jersey’s pick we like to dream big. Now if only we could solve our Pork Roll or Taylor Ham debate this easy! Which is your favorite studio or do you love both?
