In Jugavi we work with the support of great companies like Disney and this allows us to keep abreast of the most important licenses and with more presence in the worldwide media. Now we inform you of the latest news related to some of the characters present in our collections:
The TV animated show Sofia the First, one of the last characters in joining our catalog of Disney characters, has been nominated for six Emmy awards at the 41st Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards (which will take place on June 22nd), including Outstanding Preschool Children’s Animated Program. A sample of the impact it is having this new character, which are expanding products in our collections.
If you have small children at home, you will have noted that Frozen, the last Disney film, has become a big phenomenon. Last Christmas became a box office hit and was further rewarded with two Hollywood Oscars: Best Animated Film and Best Original Song.
This success continues with the release of the film in domestic format, which has already raised more than $400 million, and has grossed over $1.19 billion in worldwide box office.
The Frozen soundtrack is now one of only 39 albums in the history of the Billboard 200 chart to have spent at least 13 weeks at number one (the chart began in 1956). The soundtrack is also marking its tenth nonconsecutive week of sales exceeding 100,000 copies. As of last week, cumulative sales for the soundtrack stand at 2.6 million units, of which 2.2 million have been sold in 2014.
To resume, the Frozen characters remain very attractive and profitable. Stay alert to our website because we are preparing new collections for the upcoming winter season, when Frozen will be one of the best selling licenses.
