Today, Walt Disney Studios announced that Toy Story 3 is set to pass the $1 Billion mark within the next 24 hours. This will be the studio’s second film to pass the $1 Billion mark this year, the other release being Alice in Wonderland. Except this time the film is actually decent and worthy of making that much money.
“It’s been an incredible year as we saw the Pixar team bring Buzz and Woody back to the big screen and watched Tim Burton’s vision for Alice in Wonderland take the world by storm,” said Rich Ross, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “These box office triumphs prove that creative storytelling brought to life by imaginative, inspired and talented professionals is something audiences respond to the world over.”
Toy Story 3 is also the first ever animated movie to cross this milestone as well as being Disney’s most successful internationally released animated movie of its entire history. And this is a studio that has made a lot of animated movies. This film certainly does deserve these records and I hope it continues to make a lot more money!
