Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” has crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, becoming the fourth Pixar movie to do so and the fifth Disney movie this year to be a part of the billion-dollar club.
Disney is now the first studio to have five films (“Aladdin,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Captain Marvel,” “The Lion King,” “Toy Story 4”) gross over $1 billion in a single year. The Mouse House has been putting out juggernauts fairly consistently – short of its misfire with the “Dumbo” remake, its always small-fry Disneynature release, and the disappointing results of the Fox movies it inherited.
Disney beat its own record, previously set in 2016, with four films reaching the billion-dollar mark. This year however won’t likely be topped as both “Frozen 2” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” are expected to cross the mark as well. The studio also has “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” opening which should do good business.
