To $1 billion, and beyond!
Disney announced Thursday its critically lauded animated sequel Toy Stoy 4′s worldwide grosses have crossed the box-office landmark nearly two months after its theatrical bow. It is Disney’s fifth billion-dollar grossing film of 2019, following Aladdin, The Lion King, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame — all of which made more than $1 billion earlier this year.
Through Wednesday, the film’s ticket sales pushed it past the $1 billion mark, joining Incredibles 2, Finding Dory, and Toy Story 3, as the fourth Pixar film to achieve the unprecedented feat.
According to a studio release, the film’s $1,001.7M haul makes it the eighth-highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
Toy Story 4‘s total is fueled by $421.8 million in domestic ticket sales, coupled with $579.9 million from foreign territories, including Japan ($76.5 million), the United Kingdom ($75.2 million), and Mexico ($71.8 million), with future theatrical bows still slated for Germany and across Scandinavia.
Released nine years after its predecessor, the Josh Cooley-directed Toy Story 4 follows beloved toys Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) as they join forces with friends new (Tony Hale as a feisty spork, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as plush carnival toys) and old (Annie Potts as Bo Peep, Joan Cusack as Jessie) on a quest to help Woody reconnect with his new owner (and himself).
Toy Story 4 is now playing in theaters nationwide.
