Disney, Like Fans, Must Wait for ‘Star Wars: Force Awakens’.

Captain Phasma masks, Kylo Ren lightsabers and BB-8 backpacks have been flying out of stores the world over since Sept. 4, yet not a cent of those sales showed up in Walt Disney Co.’s quarterly earnings this week. Earlier this week, he told People magazine that he had viewed the films over and over since he was first introduced to them as an eight year old, “analyz[ing] every little detail.” Fleetwood, who is suffering from spindle cell carcinoma, recently discovered that cancer tumors have filled 90 percent of his lungs.

His wife, Ashley, celebrated on her Facebook page that Daniel saw an unfinished version of the movie, thanks to the film’s producers and director, J.J. Accounting rules bar Burbank, California-based Disney from recording revenue from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” products until the movie hits theaters on Dec. 18, Chief Financial Officer Christine McCarthy told investors on a conference call Thursday. The Star Wars fan in Texas worried that he would not live long enough to see the newest episode, “The Force Awakens.” Though Daniel has outlived his original prognosis, he still has little time remaining. We would like to thank the awesomely talented JJ Abrams for calling us yesterday to tell us Daniel was getting his wish granted!” This is not the first time Abrams has allowed a fan who is terminally ill an early viewing of one of his films. The rule may explain why Disney’s total revenue for the period ended Oct. 3 came in a tad lighter than expected, according Barton Crockett, who follows the company for FBR & Co. “Delayed gratification in licensing,” Crockett called it in a research note Friday.

The seventh installment of the “Star Wars” saga and the first since Disney acquired franchise owner Luscasfilm Ltd. in 2012, could be the all-time domestic box office champ with $762 million in ticket sales, topping “Avatar.” That’s the estimate of film researcher Boxoffice.com. “We have Star Wars products in numerous retail categories, especially toys and games,” Iger said. “And the huge global response to the brief glimpse of new merchandise we revealed on Force Friday in September suggests the demand will only grow with the release of new movies.” U.S. online sales of “Star Wars” toys hit a 12-month-high of $17.7 million in September, according to research from 1010data.
