Squee! Congratulations to the team of master storytellers up at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, CA. Their latest film, “Finding Dory,” has just swam its way to cross the $900 million mark at the global box office. The film has yet to open in some markets including Italy and Germany, so that total could go higher (although $1 billion seems out of range barring another domestic release).
Dory’s domestic total is an impressive $476.9 million. That makes it the highest-grossing film of the year so far and the 7th highest grossing movie on the all-time list. Not too shabby.
Disney actually has the top four films of the year right now: Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” at $1.2 billion, “Zootopia” with $1.0 billion, “The Jungle Book” at $948 million, and “Finding Dory.” Dory joins Pixar’s pantheon of big films in third place behind “Toy Story 3” ($1 billion) and the original “Finding Nemo” ($936 million in lifetime gross).
Which is your favorite Disney film of 2016?
