'The Lion King' Remake Becomes Top Grossing Animated Movie Of All Time!

The Lion King just broke a major record!

The latest worldwide box office numbers – not adjusted for inflation – show that the 2019 remake has officially become the top grossing animated movie of all time.

Frozen, which was released by Disney in 2013, previously held the top spot, earning $1.27 billion in the worldwide box office. As of this weekend, The Lion King has earned just over $1.33 billion.

This also makes The Lion King the number 12 movie of all time, according to Box Office Mojo.

The film could also earn a spot in the top ten if it out-earns both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 and Black Panther – which are narrowly ahead by $1.341 billion and $1.346 billion, respectively.
