Video encoding question

Hello, I'm new to video editing and am still learning the basics.

One thing I am really surprised about is the final size of videos. I put together from several videos a 3 minute finished product, and the final encoded file size is almost 800 MB for a 3 minute video.

Even considering the 24 fps for movies, how can a blu ray movie with over 2 hours of footage be such a small size comparatively.

I've seen encoding videos for premiere pro, and they seem to have similar file sizes. Is there any way to maintain quality but compress the files for youtube? Or is this something everyone has to deal with?

Edit: Forgot to mention, 60 fps 1080P videos.

Well, it depends. If its meant for youtube, I would use a bit rate exceeding 20000. Youtube will automatically compress all the video put in anyways limiting how high the bit rate can be. IF your file is 800mb in 3 minutes, clearly you encoding settings are off.
