OTHER FILMS DISNEY HAS
High School Musical
Lilo and Stitch
All these films were very popular. They are aimed at children and after all the
sales it was proved how successful Disney actually were. The amount of films
produced since the company started up also portrays the success of the
OTHER FILMS HAXAN HAS
Four corners of fear
Say yes quickly
These particular films were successful as films in general however the
Haxan productions aren’t very well known so not many people would
be interested in watching these films as they wont star well known
Disney are most commonly known for
producing children’s films. They haven’t
produced any adult films. Most of their
films are aimed at families with young
children or young teenagers.
Most of the films Haxan have produced
have been horror.
Each institution aims to have a specific genre they
focus on when producing films to make sure they
can interest and please their target audience.
I think Disney appeals more to younger age groups and families.
However as they are so well known they would have a very wide
audience and people of all ages would be willing to watch their films.
I don’t think Haxan would have a very broad audience, however I
think they would be aiming their films at young adults/ 20.30 year
olds that like those kinds of films.
I think Disney definitely outperforms Haxan as Disney have
produced nearly 500 films since 1986. Haxan started in 1999 and has
only produced 20ish films. That doesn’t seem like a very successful
film producing company. This would also imply that they’re quite
unsuccessful when it comes to selling the films whereas Disney are
one of the largest film companies in the world proving their success.
Haxan are still producing films but I think Disney have a much wider
