The animated fourquel hit $1.001 billion in worldwide ticket sales on Thursday, becoming the fourth Pixar movie ever and fifth Disney movie this year to join the elusive billion-dollar club.
Disney is now the first studio to have five films gross over $1 billion in a single year. In 2019 alone, “Avengers: Endgame,” “Captain Marvel,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King” and now “Toy Story 4” have soared past 10-figures.
Disney beat its own record, previously set in 2016, with four films having reached the billion-dollar mark. The company will release “Frozen 2,” a “Maleficent” sequel and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in the coming months, meaning Disney could continue to elevate that bar.
