Pixar’s Inside Out 2 Surpasses The Incredibles 2 as Studio’s Top-Grossing Film to Date

After a sluggish start to the year, the summer blockbuster season is finally here to revitalize the box office, and the biggest blockbuster breakthrough so far is Pixar’s Inside Out 2. The animated sequel, which hit theaters June 14, quickly outgrossed the 2015 original; now it’s overtaken The Incredibles 2 as Pixar’s all-time top-grossing release. It can add that honor to its previously attained achievements of being 2024’s top-grossing film so far—and the first movie since 2023’s Barbie to join the billion-dollar club.

As of today, Inside Out 2 has broken Pixar’s previous box office record held by The Incredibles 2. The Hollywood Reporter published the numbers and the Inside Out sequel has surpassed The Incredibles 2‘s $1.242 billion haul with a whopping $1.251 billion in global ticket sales. It’s currently the fourth highest-grossing animated movie ever, and the trade speculates it could eventually overtake Frozen II (which racked up $1.451 billion).

This is a win for Disney, Pixar’s umbrella studio, which is far from done with the box office this year. Deadpool & Wolverine is ready to slash records as the only major Marvel Studios release for the year. And later this year it will be releasing Moana 2, the animated sequel to Moana; the 2016 original is such a popular title choice on Disney+, the studio decided the sequel, originally slated as a streaming series, would instead get a feature film release this Thanksgiving, with Dwayne Johnson and Auli’i Cravalho returning to co-star as Maui and Moana. 

Pixar’s Inside Out 2 is currently in theaters.
