Disney’s Zootopia Passes $1 Billion Mark At the Box Office


Acclaim and popularity has been pouring in for Disney’s Zootopia, which has made one billion dollars so far, cementing Disney’s status as a cinematic powerhouse, as well as attaining the second-highest rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This is all according to critic Erin Whitney of Screen Crush who hailed it as “Disney’s most important and political film to date” and said, “Hopefully this will usher in a new age of meaningful storytelling in animated films.”

The film’s story turned out to be esteemed despite, or because of, the fact that several potential characters were cut from the narrative, as revealed in this USA Today article:

Among Cinema Blend’s reasons for Zootopia’s runaway success were a“lack of competition” and a cross-generational appeal.

In related news, Forbes states that X-Men: Apocalypse suffered a “66% drop from its opening weekend” and that Alice Through the Looking Glass also had a “relatively miserable second week”.

But Zootopia is not alone in its widespread appeal. According to Yahoo! Finance, “Disney has released 27 movies to date under the Pixar, Marvel, Disney Animation, and Lucasfilm brands. All of these movies have done an average business of around $770 million each at the global box office.”
