You guys know that despite "under-performing" it still had a 120 million domestic opening and broke the record for biggest worldwide opening for an animated movie, right? Hardly something to gloat over as a failure.
Not really something to gloat over but more scratch our heads, I think? The common assumption is that everything is weak this summer due to Disney films overperforming, so a Disney film missing its mark by like $30 Million is a surprise after Endgame and Aladdin exceeded expectations.
My personal theory is that Disney's releases are starting to cannibalize themselves.Added in 2 minutes 50 seconds:

Underperforming =/= Performing Poorly
I mean, what other word are you going to use when the studio and all the usual suspects predicted an OW of $150M or more and it ended up just shy of $120M? Toy Story 4 is doing very well and is going to be one of the highest grossing movies of the year, but it's not going to be AS big as expected and that's an honest surprise.
