It’s no secret that Toy Story 3 has been hyped for a long time. Many who are teenagers or adults grew up when the first two movies came out and with the third film out it has almost become an event. Hell, there’s even a group on Facebook called “Move over kids, I’ve waited 11 years for Toy Story 3” (which I joined). And its no surprise that it delivered exactly what we wanted and is now among the best films of this year.
According to /Film, earlier this week the film became the highest grossing Pixar film surpassing 2003’s Finding Nemo. And that of course began to rise and now it’s not only the highest grossing Pixar film ever, it’s now the highest grossing animated film of all time and the 14th highest grossing film ever. The total gross is $920 million, beating out Dreamworks Shrek 2, which grossed $918.9 million.
Of course this is great news. It’s no secret that Toy Story 3 is an incredible picture with one of the most satisfying and saddest endings to a franchise since Lord of the Rings, and I gotta say I’m not surprised at the fact it made that much.
Man…it makes me wanna see the film again.
