Disney woke up to a nice gift this Christmas morning as its animated family film The Good Dinosaur became the studio’s sixth film this year to cross the $100M mark. The not-so-little critters now step into the same club as Cinderella, The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Inside Out, Ant-Man and, of course, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (which has the distinction of reaching the $100M mark faster than any film in history). The latest Star Wars crossed that plateau in Friday matinees after making history with the biggest preview night ever (logged by Disney as $57M).
The Good Dinosaur is the 92nd title to reach $100M in Disney’s long history. And with The Force Awakens expected to cross $500M on Sunday (they already had a $5B global box office first for the company last week) how happy are Disney chairman/CEO Robert Iger and Walt Disney Studio chairman Alan Horn?
