Long-range box-office tracking projections for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend are in with Disney’s animated film “Wish” and Ridley Scott’s war epic “Napoleon” on track for five-day openings of at least $50 million and $24 million respectively.

If “Wish” reaches expectations, it would mark the biggest original animated opening since “Coco” back in 2017 which took in $73 million over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

Other strong Disney Thanksgiving performers in the past include “Encanto” taking $40.5 million during the pandemic, and “Moana” sailing to a stellar $82 million.

Ridley Scott’s $130 million budgeted “Napoleon” is generating heat with men, with a five-day opening the range of his “House of Gucci” which launched on the Thanksgiving 2021 weekend to $22 million for the five days.

It’s also in line with Apple Studios other major wide theatrical release of late – Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” which opened to a solid $23.2 million three-day weekend last month but sadly dropped off more than hoped in its second weekend.

Both will follow in the wake of “The Hunger Games: Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes” and “Trolls Band Together” both opening the week before and tracking for $50 million and $25 million three-day debuts respectively.
