Propelled by “Zootopia” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Disney is crossing the $1 billion mark at 2016’s international box office on Friday.

It’s the earliest that Disney has ever reached the milestone. “Zootopia” has hit $415.9 million so far in its international release, while “The Force Awakens” took in about $447 million this year from foreign markets after grossing $680 million during the last two weeks of 2015.

“Zootopia” has also totaled $217.4 million in the U.S., leading the box office for three weekends.

“Zootopia” is now the second-largest movie ever in Russia, behind only “Avatar,” with $26.5 million. In China, the animated comedy has brought in $184.7 million and is Disney’s second-highest grossing release in that market behind “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

France is the third highest international market with $26 million, followed by Germany with $19.1 million, South Korea with $18.7 million, Mexico with $15.8 million and Spain with $12.5 million.

“Zootopia” is launching in the U.K. this weekend. Major markets still to come include Japan on April 23.

“Zootopia” has totaled $633 million worldwide, while “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has a worldwide total of $2.06 billion.

Disney’s “The Finest Hours” has taken in about $23 million so far from international markets to go along with $27 million domestically.
