Evening Factoid


Third highest grossing:

... Big Hero 6 has now grossed $219.3M at the domestic box office, which pushed it past Beauty and the Beast. That puts the film in third place among Disney animated films, behind The Lion King ($422.7M) and Frozen ($400.7M). ...

The Disney flick that's right behind?

Aladdin, which has a North American gross of $217,350,219. Which is 43.1% of its ultimate, worldwide total from 22-plus years ago.

Of course, adjusted for inflation, the big blue Genie and his friends are (at this point) comfortably ahead, but who wants to adjust? Especially when it interferes with bragging rights?

One thing Aladdin didn't have to deal with in 1992-93 was Piracy. Also competition in Feature Animation for BH6 was much stronger than what Aladdin faced in 1992. The Lego Movie & How to train your Dragon 2 is much tougher to compete against than Ferngully: The Last Rainforest & Bebe's Kids.
