Congratulations, kids! We did it! Toy Story 3, one the best animated, and live-action, movies of these past few years has become the highest grossing animated film of all time. The film has brought in more than $920 million worldwide, surpassing Dreamworks Animation‘s Shrek 2 ($919.8 million worldwide) for the title. All I can say is, daaaaaaaamn, that’s a lot of cheddar in Woody and Buzz’s pocket.
/Film points out that the price of 3D tickets must also be considered when comparing these box office numbers. Shrek 2 didn’t have the benefit of charging theater patrons $20 a pop to see more stuff jump out at them. A film like The Lion King made $783.8 million worldwide in 1994, a number which would be adjusted to $1.54 billion today. Daaaaaamn, that’s a lot of cheddar in Mufasa’s pocket. Oh wait, he died in the film. RETROACTIVE SPOILER ALERT!
