Walt Disney Co. shares dropped in the extended session Tuesday after the media giant’s quarterly revenue fell short of Wall Street estimates.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Disney’s shares had gained about 30 percent year to date, boosted by news of upcoming “Frozen” and Star Wars sequels, making it the fastest-growing stock in the Dow Jones industrial average. The Dow, on the other hand, is down about 2 percent for the year.

On Monday, Walt Disney extended its partnership with Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo, a subsidiary of Fast Retailing, as the retailer looks to expand its presence in China. Through the collaboration, Uniqlo will design clothing, accessories and plush toys featuring Disney and Marvel characters, expanding a tie-up that began in 2009 when Uniqlo launched its Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse T-shirt collection.
