Disney announced strong second quarter results for fiscal year 2018, topping Wall Street expectations. The entertainment giant reported a 9% year-on-year quarterly revenue increase, while earnings per share jumped 23%. This growth was fueled by its Parks division and Studio Entertainment segment, in particular the success of blockbuster movies such as Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. Disney’s Studio Entertainment is set to keep the blockbuster titles coming over the next few years, which will be of vital importance when Disney launches its direct-to-consumer offering in 2019.
