Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory crossed the $900M mark globally yesterday, becoming the fourth Walt Disney Studios release to reach the threshold this year. The third highest grossing Pixar release of all time, Finding Dory has surpassed the original $871M gross of its 2003 prequel Finding Nemo and is approaching that film’s $936M lifetime gross.
Finding Dory opened June 17 with $135M in the US and Canada, the biggest debut ever for an animated film and the #3 opening of 2016 overall. The film is already the #1 domestic release of the year and the #7 domestic release of all time with $476.9M. Its international gross is $423.5M with upcoming releases in Italy, Germany, and other territories.
Finding Dory is the 16th Disney release to reach $900M and joins Captain America: Civil War ($1.15B), Zootopia ($1.02B) and The Jungle Book ($949M) among the studio’s 2016 releases, with the four ranking as the top four industry releases of the year worldwide.
