Toy Story 3 merchandise expected to gross $2.4 billion this year

Pixar is a force to be reckoned with, it seems. The chart above shows the production budgets for each of the 11 Pixar films to be released. In a graphic below, you can see how much money they grossed at the box office. More interesting is how much side-revenue Disney rakes in. Cars has made $2 billion in merchandise sales since it came out in 2006 and Toy Story 3 is expected to bring home more than $2.4 billion this year alone. 

Another cool statistic: Steve Jobs (Apple CEO) bought Pixar for $10 million in 1985. In 2006, he sold it to Disney for $7.4 billion. This info comes courtesy of Know Your Money, a British financial website. Thanks to Studio Briefing for the link.
