With an A CinemaScore and an exceptional 97% Fresh critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, Toy Story 4 made its domestic debut on June 20 with $120.9 million, one of the biggest openings ever for an animated film.

Globally, Toy Story 4 minted more than $238 million during its opening weekend, out of which $118 million was collected from the United States markets alone.

Not only did Disney make it to the top with Avengers: Endgame beating Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time, the company has also become the very first studio to have five movies each making more than $1 billion at the box office in a single year. Disney will probably get at least one more billion dollar-earning movie this year, as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens in December.

Currently, Toy Story 4 is the 9th highest-grossing animated movie of all-time at the global box office - if you count Jon Favreau's 2019 The Lion King as an animated film. It featured the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Madeleine McGraw, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves, Ally Maki, Jay Hernandez, Lori Alan, and Joan Cusack.

Spider-Man: Far From Home-a co-production of Sony film and Disney's Marvel Studios is the only other feat to have hit the $1 billion milestone globally this year. After two months in theaters, the movie grossed $421 million in North America and $579.9 million overseas. Hindustan Times notes that the film also secured a flawless 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
