Summary: 
In 2019, Disney led the industry with 40 percent of ticket sales. The company's tobacco content started to drop in 2005, after Disney adopted a policy "discouraging" tobacco in its movies and sold its chain-smoking Miramax division. In 2015, Disney strengthened its policy, pledging that no cigarettes will appear in kid-rated films from Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel and Pixar. However, Disney's purchase of Fox studio assets in March 2019 made "smokefree" Disney one of today's smokiest media companies. That poses a challenge not only for future productions under the Twentieth Century Studio and Searchlight banners, but when flogging Fox films on Disney's Hulu streamer.
