home on the rangeTraditional animation took a hiatus at Disney until 2009’s The Princess and the Frog, after Home On The Range flopped at the global box office.  The toon cost $110m and Disney opened Home On The Range in 3,047 theaters where it tanked with $13,880,771 coming in behind Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed in its second week in release.  The film declined 41.6% the following weekend to $8,105,171 and adding to the mouse house’s problems that weekend was their expensive disaster The Alamo opening to miserable numbers.  Home On The Range had enough legs to carry its gross to $50,030,461 but the numbers were poor enough to end in an estimated $70m write off for Disney after an expensive marketing blitz for the film.  Overseas, Home On The Range pulled in weak numbers inline with its domestic gross, topping out at $53,921,000.
