Excluding certain items, Disney earned $1.84 per share, above analysts` expectations of $1.55 per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
The company, which is buying the bulk of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc`s TV and film units, said total revenue fell to $15.30 billion from $15.35 billion, above analysts` estimates of $15.14 billion.
