After being the highest grossing animated Disney movie since Frozen for several months, Zootopia must give the title to a family of fish.
That’s right, Finding Dory has made more in its box office run than Zootopia did. Coming in at 1.024 Billion dollars, they just barely surpass Zootopia’s gains by a little under 1 million dollars (as of November 7th).
Well done, Pixar! Well done indeed! Give our congratulations to our fishy friends!
Besides, not all is lost for Zootopia- not by a long shot! It’s still the #2 Highest Grossing Original Film in history, and it was $50 Million cheaper for Disney to make than Finding Dory was. Zootopia also seems to have a good shot at winning Best Animated Film at the Oscars. And with the news of Big Hero 6 getting a TV show, it would be insane for Disney to not do anything more with Zootopia.
So let’s keep our fingers crossed for more Zootopia in the future, and congratulate Pixar for their third (good) sequel!
