‘The Lion King‘s roar continues to reverberate.
Details on the film’s major milestone below…
As reported, Jon Favreau‘s photo-realistic remake of the 1994 crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office – joining an elite list of titles.
Now sitting at a colossal $1.334 billion, ‘The Lion King’ has clenched another win. For, it’s become Disney’s most successful animated movie of all time.
In earning the honor, the Beyonce and Donald Glover led production tops ‘Frozen’s $1.276 billion.
There continues to be open debate about whether the film is technically live-action (its director has consistently referenced it as “photo realistic” animation), but as a live-action flick it’s now become Disney’s highest grossing “non-Marvel/non-Star Wars” live-action movie ever. [Source]
