NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet's Jim Cramer said he will be watching Disney (DIS) - Get Report as the company reports earnings for its third quarter after the market's closing bell on Tuesday.

"The pattern of stocks running into a quarter has often proved to be a good sign," Cramer said. "Disney is running into the quarter for Tuesday."

Cramer said many Disney shareholders are unwilling to sell their shares, despite the stock's run heading into the earnings release, because of all that is going to be coming from the media and entertainment giant. Cramer said Star Wars and the coming Shanghai Disneyland are two things investors will be looking out for from Disney.

Disney got hold of the Star Wars franchise when it acquired George Lucas' Lucasfilm in 2012 for roughly $4 billion. Lucas, who fully owned Lucasfilm, became the second-largest non-institutional investor in Disney, behind the trust of the deceased Steve Jobs, while Disney added Star Wars to its long list of hugely successful franchises.

In July, Disney unveiled the design and attractions for its mega-resort to open in Shanghai. The first Disney resort in mainland China is set to open in the spring of 2016 and help secure Disney's footing in the country.

"What you're hoping to do, if you do sell, is to be able sell it and then buy it back very nimbly," Cramer said. However, "that has not been a good course."

Disney's stock has been a "straight-up stock," he said, relating it to other stocks such as Netflix (NFLX) - Get Report and Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report. Disney's stock has gained about 28% since the beginning of the calendar year. Netflix and Amazon have surged 133% and 73%, respectively, in the same time period.

"If you own Disney because of my recommendation, just hold it," Cramer said. "There is no reason not to."

At the time of publication, Jim Cramer's charitable trust Action Alerts PLUS held no positions in stocks mentioned.
