“Big Hero 6” passes $600 million milestone at box office, what’s next?


A strong performance after opening in China, its final major international country, has pushed the box office total for Disney’s “Big Hero 6” across the $600 million market. This puts it in some fairly rare air for a Disney film. It’s Disney’s fourth film released in 2014 to reach that mark (joining “Maleficent,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy”) and the 22nd highest grossing film ever.

It has surpassed “Tangled” to land at the third-highest grossing Disney animated release of all-time. It’s not finished either as “Big Hero 6” is still playing in 25+ markets around the world. But there’s not even a slim chance it will catch either Frozen ($1.27B) or The Lion King ($987M).

So the question now becomes, what should Disney do with the franchise? A Big Hero 6 sequel? A DisneyXD animated series? Does it deserve a theme park attraction? What would you do if you were in charge?
