During the earnings call, CEO Bob Iger spoke about the "solid" quarter, which narrowly surpassed Wall Street expectations, being buoyed in part by positive results from the ESPN network and the Disneyland Resort in Paris.
About Pixar's WALL-E, Iger said:
"WALL-E is a big hit, generating nearly $200 million at the domestic box office so far, and, in a testament to its quality, has been the best reviewed film of the year, animated or otherwise. We believe WALL-E will continue to provide substantial value over time as one of our classic films."The 'Street' responded sluggishly to the report, sending the stock down roughly $0.75 in after hours trading.
