Zootopia Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

I really enjoyed seeing Zootopia. It was a great animated film, with a deeper message about intolerance and racism. You can read my full review for the movie here. Since I saw it, I have been championing this film on at the box office. It has been going and going and going, being the highest grossing film of the year for awhile... until a little film called Captain America: Civil War came out. Right now, Civil War stands as the highest grossing film of the year, having raked in over $1.1 billion, with Zootopia trailing behind it. I never thought Zootopia would make more than Civil War, but I really wanted to see it cross $1 billion dollars, because it's been hovering around $900 million for a while now. However, now Zootopia has hit that milestone.

Zootopia has officially crossed $1 billion dollars at the worldwide box office, making it the second highest grossing original film of all time (behind Avatar), the 11th Disney film to break one billion, and the 26th film ever to join to billion dollar club. I am very happy for Zootopia. It's a great film, and it deserves the success it's getting. This is the second 2016 film to cross one billion, and I don't think it will be the last. The Jungle Book is about $100 million from $1 billion, and it's very feasible that it will cross that milestone. Plus, we have other big films coming out like Finding Dory, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which all have the possibility of doing massive damage at the box office. I think 2016 may hold quite a few billion dollar films, and Zootopia is now the second one to join the list.

What do you think? Are you happy that Zootopia crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office? Have you seen the film? What other movies this year may join the billion dollar club? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
