Big Hero 6” opened to $56.2 million in the U.S. on November 7 and has taken off internationally.

Last weekend, it overtook “Tangled” as the third biggest Walt Disney Animation Studios release ever globally, behind only “Frozen” and “The Lion King.” It’s also the studio’s third largest domestic release of all time.

“Big Hero 6” continues doing strong business in China, where it opened just two weeks ago. After reeling in over $51 million, it’s already surpassed “Frozen” to become the highest-grossing Disney or Pixar animated release in the country. Baymax, the film’s marshmallow-like robot character, is a big hit in China.

The pic has earned more than $75 million in Japan — becoming the second highest grossing Disney animated release there ever.
