Earlier this year, Captain America: Civil War ($1.153 billion) and Zootopia ($1.023 billion) crossed $1 billion at the global box office, and today, Disney has officially announced that Finding Dory has accomplished the monumental feat as well.
With an estimated $484.7 million domestically and $516.7 million internationally, Finding Dory now has an estimated total of $1,001,480,568, making it Pixar's second billion-dollar film. Toy Story 3, which was released in 2010, was the first to reach the billion-dollar milestone and is still the studio's highest-grossing film of all-time with $1,066,969,703. However, Finding Dory is the highest-grossing Pixar film of all-time at the domestic box office, surpassing Toy Story 3's record ($415 million) back in July.
As for highest-grossing animated films of all-time, Finding Dory currently ranks fifth. Not too shabby for a film that came 13 years after its predecessor, Finding Nemo, which pulled in $940 million at the worldwide box office.
From the Academy Award®–winning creators of Disney•Pixar's Finding Nemo (Best Animated Feature, 2003) comes an epic undersea adventure filled with imagination, humor and heart. When Dory, the forgetful blue tang (Ellen DeGeneres), suddenly remembers she has a family who may be looking for her, she, Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) take off on a life-changing quest to find them…with help from Hank, a cantankerous octopus; Bailey, a beluga whale who's convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark! Dive into the movie overflowing with unforgettable characters, dazzling animation and gallons of fun!
Its all-star voice cast also includes Ed O'Neill (Modern Family), Kaitlin Olson (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Eugene Levy (Schitt's Creek), and Diane Keaton (Love the Coopers).
