‘Toy Story 3’ sets box office record

Disney-Pixar film becomes highest-grossing toon ever

Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” surpassed today $920 million in worldwide box office receipts, making it the all-time highest-grossing animated film globally.

Toon is expected to cross the $400 million domestic benchmark this weekend, which would make it only the second Disney pic to do so. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” which bowed July 7, 2006, took in $423.6 million domestically.

“In 1995, the talented team at Pixar introduced a cowboy, a space ranger and their friends who have gone on to become some of the most beloved characters in the world,” Disney chairman Rich Ross said in a statement. “The success of ‘Toy Story’ is due to the tremendously creative and innovative team at Pixar, led by John Lasseter and Ed Catmull, and our incredible marketing and distribution teams around the world.”

Boosted by the toon’s 3D format, “Toy 3” debuted Stateside on June 18, with $109 million to become Disney/Pixar’s top opening ever. Toon’s international tally stands at more than $518 million to date.
