Disney’s Pixar has knocked another one out of the park.
Incredibles 2 landed over the weekend, earning Disney an estimated $180 million in North America alone. This massive haul has made Incredibles 2 the biggest animated opening of all time, the biggest PG-rated opening of all time and the eighth best overall film launch ever.
Previously, Pixar’s Finding Dory held the best animation opening with $135 million and Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast held the best PG-rated opening with $174.8 million.
The sequel comes 14 years after the original film, with Brad Bird returning to write and direct. Both films received overwhelmingly positive reviews by critics and audiences.
