Disney becomes the first studio of the year to have five $1 billion movies under it’s name with Toy Story 4 being the latest one to cross the mark. 

The studio announced on Thursday that the animated Pixar film has hit $1.001 billion in worldwide ticket sales becoming the fourth Pixar movie ever to join the billion-dollar club.

Released on June 21, the fourth installment in Pixar’s Toy Story series introduces several new characters, including a talking fork. It has been well received by audiences for it’s humour, emotion and animation. The film fared quite well at the box office becoming the sixth highest-grossing film of 2019 as well as the ninth highest grossing animated film of all time.

Spider-Man: Far From Home—a co-production of Sony film and Disney’s Marvel Studios is the only other feat to have hit the $1 billion milestone globally this year.

The Walt Disney Studio planned to release 19 movies in 2019. So far, five out of them have soared past 10-figures. These successful movies include  Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Aladdin, The Lion King and now Toy Story 4. Of these, two are live-action remakes of Disney classics.
