Disney continues to break records at the box office. The company announced Thursday that “Toy Story 4” surpassed the $1 billion mark on Wednesday, becoming the fifth movie from the studio to do so this year.
The fourth installment in the “Toy Story” franchise is the fourth Pixar film to reach $1 billion and is now the eighth highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
The film opened in June with $118 million in ticket sales, the highest debut of any “Toy Story” film.
So far, four other Disney films have passed $1 billion this year: “Captain Marvel,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
