Inside Out 2's Domestic Box Office Pushes Pixar Sequel Past Frozen 2 For All-Time Animated Record


  • Inside Out 2
    crosses $1 billion worldwide, becoming the first film in 2024 to achieve this feat.
  • It is now the 4th highest-grossing animated film domestically, surpassing
    Frozen II
  • Inside Out 2
    is on track to overtake
    Toy Story 3
    in worldwide rankings, despite Despicable Me 4’s upcoming release.

Inside Out 2 has pushed back yet another domestic milestone, pushing it closer to a major animated movie record. Inside Out 2 made headlines this weekend when it crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide. This coveted gross has been earned by very few films overall, and Inside Out 2 is the first movie in 2024 to do so. In addition to its box office success, Inside Out 2‘s reviews are also immensely positive.

As per Collider, Inside Out 2‘s updated domestic box office pushes it past yet another milestone. Inside Out 2 is now the fourth-highest grossing animated film of all time at the domestic box office, passing Frozen II. This feat arose after Inside Out 2‘s Monday box office haul of $9 million brought its domestic total to $478 million, bringing it to the fourth spot. Inside Out 2 is also in the top 10 animated films of all time by worldwide gross, coming in at no. 8 (right ahead of Despicable Me 3). Its cumulative gross is now $1.045 billion.

How Far Will Inside Out 2 Go at the Box Office?

Though Inside Out 2 just now crossed the threshhold for the no. 4 slot domestically, it is not long before the film sets other records in the rankings. The movie needs just $8 million to take the no. 3 spot in the domestic rankings for animated films, as Finding Dory currently holds that spot at $486 million. Worldwide, Inside Out 2 is well-positioned to overtake both Toy Story 3 ($1.06 billion) and Toy Story 4 ($1.07 billion). Inside Out 2 may be the no. 3 animated film domestically and the no. 6 worldwide by the end of the week.

As Inside Out 2 nears these records, it will be interesting to see how far the Pixar sequel will go. The first Inside Out made $858.8 million during its 2015 run, so the sequel has already beat this total. Inside Out 2 has also managed to have immense staying power, as it was the no. 1 film at the domestic box office not just in its opening weekend, but in its second weekend as well, beating out A Quiet Place: Day One. At this rate, there is no telling exactly how far Inside Out 2 will go at the box office.


All 28 Pixar Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

From Toy Story to Inside Out 2, how do Pixar’s animated movie releases rank? Does your favorite rank in our top 3?

Part of Inside Out 2‘s success will be thwarted this week by the upcoming release of Despicable Me 4. Releasing on July 3, Despicable Me 4 is predicted to be one of the summer’s biggest blockbusters. The last film in the franchise, Minions: The Rise of Gru, brought in $940.2 million during its release, and Despicable Me 4 is arguably even more anticipated. Even if Inside Out 2 is dethroned from its no. 1 spot this weekend, the Pixar film’s record-breaking run is not over yet.
