Disney Hits $4 Billion at Global Box Office in Record Time

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ passes $800 million worldwide as it opens in China to help studio hit milestone for third straight year

Walt Disney Studios has crossed the $4 billion mark at the global box office, and done it faster than it ever has, the studio said Thursday.

Paced by Pixar’s “Inside Out,” which crossed the $800 million mark worldwide as it debuted in China this week, Disney beat the old record (Nov. 14, 2014) by nearly six weeks.

With $1.433 billion domestically and $2.575 billion internationally as of Wednesday, this is the third consecutive year the studio has reached this threshold.

“This has been a record-setting year both domestically and internationally thanks to a strong slate of films from all of our brands,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice-president of¬†theatrical distribution. “With an incredible pipeline of both original stories and anticipated sequels featuring our most beloved characters, we are set to deliver some fantastic movies well into the future.”
