‘Cinderella’ Waltzes Past $500 Million at Global Box Office

She nabbed her prince, settled down to live happily ever after, and just waltzed past an important box office milestone.

Cinderella” crossed the $500 million mark at the global box office, Walt Disney Studios said Wednesday. Produced for $95 million, the fantasy romance is part of the company’s strategy to mine its catalog of animated classics for fresh live-action family films. In coming years, Disney will adhere to the formula, and it’s moving forward with live action versions of “The Jungle Book,” “Dumbo,” “Mulan,” “Pinocchio” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

Cinderella” has taken in nearly $195 million domestically, while it has made more than $308 million internationally. Those are impressive numbers, although they pale in comparison to “Maleficent’s” $758.4 million global bounty or “Alice in Wonderland’s” $1 billion haul; both of those movies similarly used animated films as jumping off points.

“Cinderella” was directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, “Downton Abbey’s” Lily James, and Helena Bonham Carter.
