'Lion King' remake passes 'Frozen' as highest grossing animated film

Lora Ball | 13 August, 2019, 18:06

Animated or not, The Lion King is now the second highest grossing film of 2019 at both the domestic ($473.3 million) and global ($1.337 billion) box office. If we count it as such, it's outperformed Beauty and the Beast ($1.263 billion) as the highest-grossing live-action musical of all time to become Walt Disney's biggest live-action movie ever.

The Lion King is the highest-grossing animated film in the world, bringing in a whopping $1.335 billion at the worldwide box office since its release last month.

The Lion King, released in July and featuring photo-realistic graphics, reached a worldwide gross of over $1.3 billion at the box office over the weekend, placing it above Frozen's $1.2 billion gross.

Box office analysts Exhibitor Relations tweeted on Sunday that Disney viewed The Lion King's total as passing a much different record.

OnePlus Will Make More Than Just Flagship Phones With Upcoming Smart TV
We can't be sure what a unique Android TV experience means, but it could be a combination of customized user interface and apps. Pete Lau had already mentioned that the current crop of smart TVs isn't really offering a well-integrated internet experience.

There has been a debate as to whether The Lion King (2019) is live-action since save for one brief shot of the African sunrise, everything else, including animals, environments, trees, grasses was created in the studio using 3D rendering software.

The Lion King earned $473.1 million in the USA while it collected a whopping $861.5 million overseas.

Favreau himself even added some fuel to the fire, by saying his film is "neither" animation nor live-action, in an interview with Slash Film. The Lion King recorded the second-biggest collection in China.
