Inside Out 2 Breaks Records as Pixar’s Highest-Grossing Film

Pixar’s latest release, “Inside Out 2,” has officially become the highest-grossing movie in the studio’s history, surpassing the previous record held by “Incredibles 2.”

The sequel, brimming with emotional depth and creativity, achieved this milestone in just one month since its release.

According to Variety, “Inside Out 2” has amassed a staggering $1.25 billion globally since its release on June 14.

This figure eclipses the $1.24 billion earned by “Incredibles 2,” which held the record since its 2018 release. The rapid financial success of “Inside Out 2” underscores the enduring appeal of its characters and the emotional resonance of its story.

In addition to dethroning “Incredibles 2,” “Inside Out 2” has also secured its place as the fourth highest-grossing animated film of all time. The film now stands behind only “Frozen” ($1.29 billion), “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” ($1.36 billion), and “Frozen II” ($1.45 billion) in the pantheon of animated box office hits.

The sequel’s success also outshines its predecessor, “Inside Out,” which earned $859 million worldwide in 2015. This achievement highlights the growing popularity and anticipation for the franchise, as well as Pixar’s ability to deliver compelling narratives that captivate audiences across generations.

Adding to its accolades, “Inside Out 2” became the fastest animated film to reach the $1 billion mark at the global box office, a feat it accomplished in less than three weeks. The Walt Disney Company announced this milestone shortly after the film’s release, emphasizing the movie’s unprecedented pace in reaching such a high box office threshold.

“Inside Out 2” is now one of only 11 animated films to have crossed the $1 billion mark. It also holds the distinction of being the first film to achieve this milestone since Margot Robbie’s “Barbie.” This remarkable achievement further cements Pixar’s reputation for creating groundbreaking and beloved animated features.

The success of “Inside Out 2” reflects not only the film’s captivating storyline and beloved characters but also the powerful emotional connections it fosters with audiences. As the movie continues to perform well in theaters, it stands as a testament to Pixar’s storytelling prowess and its ability to innovate within the animated film genre.
