Disney Interactive has revealed their latest financial report for the year, revealing more than a 100% increase in revenue thanks in-part to the recent release of real-life toy/video game hybrid product Disney Infinity.
The large percent saw an increase to the Interactive division's revenue by $205 million, up from $191 million in Q4 2012 to $396 million in Q4 2013, according to The Walt Disney Company's earnings report for the fourth quarter.
The impressive sales of Disney Infinity's Starter Pack, which contains the game, its base and three Disney characters - Captain Jack Sparrow, James P. "Sulley" Sullivan and Mr Incredible - have topped more than 1 million sales worldwide thanks to its enjoyable palette of features.
During the financial conference call, Walt Disney senior executive VP and CFO Jay Rasulo said the next test for Infinity will come this holiday season, but "we feel good about its prospects so far" based on feedback from retailers, consumers, and gamers (via GamesIndustry).
Walt Disney as a company also saw some favourable turns for the better, posting full-year revenues up 7 percent year-over-year to $45.04 billion, with net income up 8 percent to $6.14 billion.
In what could potentially be gaming related, the new financial report also revealed that Star Wars Episode VII will make its theatrical debut December 18, 2015. Interestingly this is the same date as Blizzard's WarCraft movie, which is being directed by Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie.
