A still from 'Inside Out 2'.

Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 has joined the billion-dollar club.

The sequel to the 2015 film surpassed $1 billion at the global box office on Sunday, becoming the first film of 2024 to do so – and the first film since Barbie to garner this kind of ticketing success. It is currently the highest grossing film of the year.

According to Disney, Inside Out 2 hit the billion-dollar mark just 19 days since its release, setting the fastest box office record for an animated film — Frozen 2 reached it 25 days. The movie also scored the biggest box-office opening day of the year, picking up $62 million the day of its release. Just this weekend, Inside Out 2 made $57.4 million, just ahead of A Quiet Place: Day One at $53 million.

Only 11 animated films have made this kind of money at the box office including Zootopia, Finding Dory, Despicable Me 3, Toy Story 3 and 4, Minions, Incredibles 2, Frozen and its sequel, and the highest grossing animated film of all time, 2019’s The Lion King. The movie’s predecessor, Inside Out, was just shy of the accolade back in 2015, when the film collected $858 million.

Inside Out 2 sees the return of titular character Riley (voiced by Kensington Tallman), as she grapples with her emotions, including some new additions: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Liza Lapira), Fear (Tony Hale), Anger (Lewis Black), Anxiety (Maya Hawke), Envy (Ayo Edebiri), Ennui (Adèle Exarchopoulos), and Embarrassment (Walter Hauser).

Mashable’s Belen Edwards described the film as “the rare Pixar sequel that truly earns its existence and deepens the message of its first film. And even though it may make you deeply, deeply, deeply anxious, it’s also, quite simply, a joy to watch.”
