Finding Dory box office hits $1 billion globally

Posted on

Disney/Pixar

Finding Dory is still swimming its way to big box office numbers.

Pixar’s follow-up to Finding Dory has officially crossed the $1 billion threshold at the global box office, Disney announced on Sunday, making it the fifth-highest grossing animated film of all time.

Dory, which brought back Ellen DeGeneres as the lovable but forgetful blue tang fish, now stands as this year’s highest-grossing domestic release, with a total of $485 million. Its international haul adds another $517 million to the total.

The film’s entrance into the billion-dollar club also makes it Pixar’s second film to hit that mark (following Toy Story 3) as well as Disney’s fourth film to hit $1 billion in the past 12 months, after Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Captain America: Civil War, and Zootopia.

Finding Dory, which also featured a voice cast including Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton, first started raking in cash when it was released on June 17, where it set records as the seventh-biggest domestic opening and the biggest animated opening of all time. Next, it swims onto digital release on Oct. 25 and on Blu-ray/DVD on Nov. 15.
