HOW DO MEDIA FRANCHISES MAKE THEIR MONEY?

Bat-SonicOver the last couple of months, our pals over at the Casino Kings have sat down and analyzed how the world’s highest-grossing media franchises have made their money, including cartoons, films, television shows, comic books, video games, and any other popular form of media. So, to find out what they've discovered, stand back, take a deep breath, and scroll down the page to check out the following infographics.





Here are some statistics that you might find interesting.
  1. On average, most cinematic productions generate a fair portion of their income through ticket sales at the box office, unlike Star Wars, which has made $40 billion from its merchandise and $25.9 billion from everything else it's licensed to. 
  2. The popular TV show, Friends, has managed to bring in $3.5 billion through worldwide TV syndication alone, making it the most profitable television series so far.
  3. One of the most lucrative franchises in the world of animation is the Barbie franchise as it has made $24 billion, with $2 billion coming from its animated films and $22 billion coming from its merchandise.
  4. Despite its box office success, The Lord Of The Rings has earned a substantial share of their income through book sales, $9.1 billion, regardless of its format.
  5. Contrary to other animated-adventures, The Lion King made most of their money from musical theatre, $8.2 billion, rather than the films, the merchandise, or the spin-offs.
  6. In the same vein as some of the other franchises previously mentioned, the Minecraft franchise has made the majority of its revenue by selling its merchandise rather than its video games, totaling $3.6 billion.
