Disney is expanding to the U.S. and Canada, launching an all-new Star Wars franchise and unveiling its new stock for the first time.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the fourth Star Wars film to be released on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.- and Canada-based countries, and it’s the biggest blockbuster ever made in those markets.
The U.K.-based Star Wars is the second-biggest release in the world, behind the Avengers.
The company also released a new stock offering, with an initial public offering, for a total of $3.2 billion.
That’s up from $2 billion, or $1.9 billion, the previous offering.
The offering was announced in the company’s latest quarterly earnings conference call with analysts.
Disney also announced that it is now the largest film studio in the Americas, with $3 billion in annual revenue.
That beats out Disney’s largest competitor, Universal, which is expected to have around $2-3 billion by the end of this year.
Disney says it plans to use the money to invest in Star Wars and other franchises.
It will invest $500 million in “Star Wars Story,” a new Star Wars movie starring Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver that will premiere in 2018.
Disney also announced the purchase of Pixar Animation Studios, the studio behind Toy Story and The Incredibles.
The Disney shares were trading at $32.84 in early trading on Monday.
Disney stock closed Friday at $39.49.
