Fact #6

On the 13th August, 2010, Disney celebrated Toy Story 3 becoming the highest grossing animated film of all time.

However, this is a bit of a contentious title, owing to inflation and the fact that Toy Story 3 was released in 3D, which many films previously were not, and also meant that more was being charged per ticket for the same film.

Adjusting for inflation, a list of the 25 highest grossing animated films (at the US Box office) are as follows:

1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs ($853 million)
2. 101 Dalmatians ($782 million)
3. The Lion King ($697 million)
4. Fantasia ($650 million)
5. Jungle Book ($576 million)
6. Sleeping Beauty ($569 million)
7. Shrek 2 ($556 million)
8. Pinocchio ($527 million)
9. Bambi ($498 million)
10. Finding Nemo ($441 million)
11. Lady and the Tramp ($436 million)
12. Aladdin ($410 million)
13. Toy Story 3 ($408 million)
14. Toy Story 2 ($374 million
15. Shrek ($370 million)
16. Shrek the Third ($367 million)
17. Beauty and the Beast ($355 million)
18. Monsters Inc. ($353 million)
19. Toy Story ($343 million)
20. The Incredibles ($312 million)
21. Up ($307 million)
22. Who Framed Roger Rabbit ($298 million)
23. Cars ($291 million)
24. A Bug’s Life ($267 million)
25. Tarzan ($263 million)

Out of 25, Disney/Pixar films were mentioned 21 times. Not a bad effort, really.
