Pixar net worth and earnings

Updated: November 1, 2020

With 5.15 million subscribers, Pixar is a popular YouTube channel. The Pixar YouTube channel started in 2006.

One common question we hear is: What is Pixar's net worth or how much does Pixar earn? No one beyond Pixar really knows, that said, let's walk through what we know.

What is Pixar's net worth?

Pixar has an estimated net worth of about $4.51 million.

While Pixar's finalized net worth is publicly available, Net Worth Spot sources online data to make a forecast of $4.51 million.

That estimate only uses one advertising source though. Pixar's net worth may possibly be higher than $4.51 million. When we consider many sources of revenue, Pixar's net worth could be as high as $7.9 million.

How much does Pixar earn?

Pixar earns an estimated $2.26 million a year.

You may be wondering: How much does Pixar earn?

The Pixar YouTube channel attracts about 1.57 million views every day.

YouTube channels that are monetized earn revenue by serving. On average, YouTube channels earn between $3 to $7 for every one thousand video views. With this data, we predict the Pixar YouTube channel generates $188.11 thousand in ad revenue a month and $2.26 million a year.

Net Worth Spot may be using under-reporting Pixar's revenue though. If Pixar makes on the higher end, ad revenue could bring in as much as $5.08 million a year.

YouTubers rarely have one source of income too. Successful YouTube also have sponsors, and they could earn more by promoting their own products. Plus, they could speaking presentations.

Pixar Animation Studios, commonly known as Pixar (), is an American computer animation studio based in Emeryville, California, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Studios owned by The Walt Disney Company. Pixar began in 1979 as part of the Lucasfilm computer division, known as the Graphics Group, before its spin-off as a corporation on February 3, 1986, with funding from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who became its majority shareholder. Disney purchased Pixar in 2006 at a valuation of $7.4 billion by converting each share of Pixar stock to 2.3 shares of Disney stock, a transaction that resulted in Jobs becoming Disney's largest single shareholder at the time. Pixar is best known for its feature films technologically powered by RenderMan, the company's own implementation of the industry-standard RenderMan Interface Specification image-rendering application programming interface. Luxo Jr., a desk lamp from the studio's 1986 short film of the same name, is the studio's mascot. Pixar has produced 22 feature films, beginning with Toy Story (1995), which was the first ever computer-animated feature film; its most recent film was Soul (2020). All of the studio's films have debuted with CinemaScore ratings of at least an "A−," which indicates a positive reception with audiences. The studio has also produced dozens of short films. As of July 2019, its feature films have earned approximately $14 billion at the worldwide box office, with an average worldwide gross of $680 million per film. Toy Story 3 (2010), Finding Dory (2016), Incredibles 2 (2018), and Toy Story 4 (2019) are all among the 50 highest-grossing films of all time, with Incredibles 2 being the third highest-grossing animated film of all time, with a gross of $1.2 billion; the other three also grossed over $1 billion. Moreover, 15 of Pixar's films are in the 50 highest-grossing animated films of all time. The studio has earned 21 Academy Awards, 9 Golden Globe Awards, and 11 Grammy Awards, along with numerous other awards and acknowledgments. Many of Pixar's films have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, since its inauguration in 2001, with ten Pixar winners being Finding Nemo (2003), The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007), WALL-E (2008), Up (2009), Toy Story 3 (2010), Brave (2012), Inside Out (2015), Coco (2017), and Toy Story 4; the three that were nominated for the award without winning it are Monsters, Inc. (2001), Cars (2006), and Incredibles 2. In addition to that award, Up and Toy Story 3 were also the second and third animated films, respectively, to be nominated for the more inclusive Academy Award for Best Picture (the first being Walt Disney Animation Studios' Beauty and the Beast in 1991). On September 6, 2009, Pixar executives John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, and Lee Unkrich were presented with the Golden Lion award for Lifetime Achievement by the Venice Film Festival. As part of the ceremony, the physical award was handed to Lucasfilm's founder, George Lucas.
