Disney has become the first studio to have five movies cross the $1 billion mark at the global office in a year.
On Thursday, it was announced that Toy Story 4 had hit the billion dollar milestone, following in the footsteps of Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Captain Marvel and Aladdin. The only other movie to cross the billion mark globally this year is Spider-Man: Far From Home, a Sony film co-produced with Disney’s Marvel Studios.
Toy Story 4 is the fourth Pixar film to make $1 billion, joining Incredibles 2, Finding Dory and Toy Story 3. It’s also the eighth highest-grossing animated film of all time.
Of course, there’s no doubt that Disney’s record-breaking run will continue until the end of 2019, with the likes of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Frozen 2, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker still to be released.
2016 was the last time numerous Disney movies achieved the $1 billion mark worldwide, with four films reaching the coveted milestone: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Finding Dory, Captain America: Civil War, and Zootopia.
