Entertainment giant The Walt Disney Company ( DIS ) late Tuesday posted better-than-expected fiscal third quarter earnings, aided by growth in its TV networks and theme parks units.

The Burbank, CA-based company reported fiscal third quarter net income of $1.48 billion, or 77 cents per share, compared with $1.33 billion, or 67 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding one-time items, adjusted profit was 78 cents per share.

Revenue rose 7% from last year to $10.7 billion.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller profit of 73 cents per share on lower revenue of $10.4 billion.

After an initial after-hours pop, Disney shares reversed course and fell $1.18, or -3.4%, during premarket trading Wednesday.
