Even if Endgame doesn’t surpass Avatar, Disney is no stranger to re-releases. According to FORBES:
Walt Disney has a long history of essentially punking its rivals via reissues. It reissued The Little Mermaid in November 1997 just one week before Fox’s Anastasia (a Don Bluth toon that was very much trying to mimic the Disney formula) debuted in theaters. It offered “all new closing credit bloopers” with Pixar’s A Bug’s Life during the opening weekend of DreamWorks Animation’s Prince of Egypt in December 1998. And it released a singalong version of Frozen in late January 2014, just one week before Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Movie opened.
