Toy Story 3 has joined the $1 billion dollar club. It is already Pixar’s highest grossing film to date, and now it can add ‘first animated movie in history to cross the billion dollar mark’ to its trophy cabinet.
The film has made just under $600 million internationally, and $400 million in the US.
Disney is now the first studio in history to release two $1 billion grossing films in a single year. Alice In Wonderland hit the mark in May, and now they have Toy Story 3. Higher ticket prices for 3D were obviously a factor, and we can expect more movies to make $1 billion+ in the near future. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I will probably be the next one thanks to a 3D conversion.
I wonder if this success will prompt Pixar and Disney to green-light a Toy Story 4?
