From post 2 top 25 animated movie rank, decided to Look up the posters of those movies, age rating, genre and how they marketed their films.

Finding dory (2016)
Finding dory marketing
Quotes from article:
They held a giveaway, the voice actor of “dory”Promoted the film by talking about it in her tv talk show, this reached out to parents of children that could take their kid to watch the film. Making at least 2 sales per kid going to watch the film, since a child is normally accompanied by an adult.
When the trailer came out with 2 female adults push a stroller, people thought the humans was lesbians. The controversy trended on social media and even the newspapers created articles about it. Most people was positive about the idea of a lesbian couple however some was completely against it and wanted to boycott it.
Found these statistics of the age of people, gender and their other interests, that searched up finding dory or Pixar in general. Could not find statistics for young children or actual statistics of the age of the audience who went and saw the actual movie.
In conclusion: going to think about the type of people that like a certain genre and what other things they may be more likely to like is well, to incorporate that to In the concept.
Toy story 3 2010
Age Certificate: U
Genre Listed : Animation, Adventure, Comedy.
Quote “The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care centre instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college,” “Woody’s job to convince the others they weren’t abandoned”
Everyone is hiding behind the main character, a box, a window, colourful.
Toy story 3 promotional campaign
Because of the 15 year gap between the first movie and toy story 3, due to once child character in the movie is going to collage, roughly the age of the first generations either at or ready to go to collage.
They placed flyers for the request of drivers to work at ”pizza planet” a fake location in the movie around selected colleges. The flyers directed people to a facebook page about the toys story 3 screening.
Despicable Me 2 (2013)
They placed the most popular characters in the movie poster the minions.
Age rating: U
Genres listed : Animation, Adventure, Comedy
In their first movie poster of the Despicable me, they placed the main characters in, no displaying there faces and a hoard of minions. Dark colours. Comparing This movie poster and their second movie they have shifted the focus on the characters.
Quote” the companies are expected to spend more than $254 million traditional media like TV, print, radio, outdoor, in-theater, in-store and online ads”They also partnered with McDonalds, toysrus,.”
In Hong Kong they had mini themed play area and photo opportunity’s. This allowed people to take photos with the life sized figures, share on social media and people they know would find out about the movie and possible share it on to people they know. In a shopping centre. Mcdonald had done an exclusive Hong Kong minion themed menu “summer bello party”.
In conclusion: Need to think about the region and what marking campaign is suitable for different places. Need to consider a Anthropomorphic character, since it may be more marketable then humans, like what the despicable me has done.
(Primary research photos of the cup and tic tacs )They created a line of minion tick tacs for their despicable me line.
