Walt Disney Animation’s “Strange World” has received a ‘B’ from CinemaScore following its theatrical release on Wednesday.

According to one Twitter user, the grade marks the lowest ever for a Disney Animation title since 1991 when CinemaScore started polling audience reaction to the studio’s films.

This is the first time ever that a Walt Disney Animation Studios released has received a CinemaScore worse than an A- since they started getting polled in 1991. Yes, even Home on the Range and Chicken Little scored an A- from Cinemascore. https://t.co/KWxG1jpExn

A representative for CinemaScore did not immediately return The Wrap’s request for comment.

CinemaScore’s grades for major movie releases in the U.S. and Canada, which range from A+ to F, are calculated by polling a “regionally-balanced and statistically robust sample of opening night moviegoers,” according to its website.

Pollsters provide audience members a ballot with six questions — including the grade scale, purchase and rental interest and demographic data — which are answered by bending back the ballot’s tabs. After a movie ends, audiences return the ballots to the pollsters, who tabulate the data and send the results to CinemaScore.

CinemaScore does not automatically poll or report on social media about movies that open in less than 1,500 screens. In that instance, the film studio or producers can privately contract CinemaScore to conduct a survey, which uses the same methodology as its public survey. However, CinemaScore will not disclose the score publicly without permission from the contracting party.

While CinemaScore’s polling measures a movie’s appeal among theater audiences, it does not definitively indicate whether a film will be successful or not at the box office.

“Strange World” grossed $4.2 million in its opening day on Wednesday from 4,174 locations in the U.S. and Canada.

In addition to its B rating from CinemaScore, the film has received a 75% by critics and 59% by audiences on Rotten Tomatoes as of press time.

Cinemascore didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
