Disney and Pixar can add another check mark off of success they have had in the recent years. Inside Out has officially crossed the $700 million mark worldwide making it the fifth Disney and Pixar film to do so.
Inside Out is the fifth-highest grossing film for Disney and Pixar after Toy Story 3, Monster University, Finding Nemo, and Up, according to Deadline. On opening weekend, Inside Out opened at $90.4 million which is pretty good since it was up against Jurassic World which made $106 million.
Domestically, Inside Out made $343 million which was the highest-grossing animated film this year and the second highest-grossing film for Pixar ever on its original release, right behind Toy Story 3. Internationally, Inside Out has made $358 million, but Inside Out has yet to premiere in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and Singapore, which will happen this weekend. It also has yet to appear in China, Germany, and Italy which will raise Inside Out’s profits even more.
Inside Out has received praise as it shows how a young girl deals with her emotions, joy, anger, sadness, disgust, and fear, as she moves from her quiet midwest town to San Francisco with her family. Riley has to deal with meeting new friends, going to a new school, and trying out for the hockey team which can be rough for a teenager to handle. Critics rave that it is a good representation of how a person works through their emotions to make hard decisions in their life.
With Inside Out still set to premiere in many locations internationally, you can only imagine the amount of emotions that Pixar will be feeling when Inside Out finally does premiere and the money that it will be bringing in.
It has also been announced at D23 that Inside Out will get numerous small shorts in the future, including the newest one “Riley’s First Date,” which can be seen when Inside Out comes out on DVD on November 3.
