It’s taken under 2 months for Toy Story 4 to cross $1 billion at the global box office, marking it as the fourth Pixar movie to do so. It has joined the ranks alongside Finding Dory, Toy Story 3, and Incredibles 2.
Sequels may have been causing some controversy lately, but this really shows that Pixar know what they’re doing – and they’re doing it well. Not only have these 4 sequels performed amazingly well, but they’ve also each been remarkable in their own ways. I don’t know about you, but I have seen Toy Story 4 multiple times in theatres already.
With Pixar’s upcoming movies all being originals, it’ll be exciting to see how they perform. The world may generally enjoy franchises and familiar characters, but Pixar movies are in themselves familiar (in a good way!). We can’t wait for more information on Onward and Soul to come out soon.
