With Toy Story 4, Disney Becomes The First Studio To Have 5 $1 Billion Movies In A Year

Mumbai: Toy Story 4 has crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, Disney (DIS) announced on Thursday. That makes the animated Pixar film the fifth billion-dollar release for Disney this year. The studio is now the record holder for the most billion-dollar movies in a single year.

Disney tweeted, “Thanks to our fans to infinity and beyond for helping #ToyStory4 cross $1B at the global box office!”

Disney has managed to dominate at a time when there is a glut of content on TV, streaming and in theatres and during a year in which the domestic box office is down roughly 6.5% compared to this time last year.

Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Captain Marvel and Aladdin have each crossed $1 billion this year. The Lion King and Aladdin crossed the $1 billion thresholds last month while Avengers: Endgame made that much in its opening weekend alone back in April.

And Disney’s big year is far from over. The studio has a strong slate of films for the rest of the year including “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” in October, “Frozen 2” in November and the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” opening in December.

Disney announced last month that it has raked in an industry record $7.67 billion worldwide, breaking their own record of $7.61 billion in 2016.

A box office year like this one only cements Disney’s status as the king of content.
