Walt Disney is well known for producing some of the top grossing films in animation. Their partnership with Pixar is a very impressive move as they have become not just the leader but a trend setter when it comes to storytelling and modern filmmaking.
The following is a list of the top grossing and award winning films that Disney Studios have created in the recent years:
Earning more than $600 million in worldwide box office is not an easy task but Disney and Pixar seemed to achieve it effortlessly with the super hero flick. A story about a family of super heroes is more than just a family story but also a fun and delightful animation film that everybody loves.
“Up” earned more than $730 million worldwide and a host of top accolades from critics. It was considered one of the best films of the year and animation has moved beyond simple entertainment.
The story about a dad trying to save his son has earned $860 million worldwide. Set underwater, the amusing interaction of the fishes and other animals were more than enough to entice movie goers.
Lion King is probably the most profitable film from Disney and it was released before they collaborated with Pixar. With a budget of only $45 million (nearly 1/3 of the budget for Up) the film earned a whopping $950 million worldwide.
Toy Story 3
The fitting end of a beautiful animation trilogy is also the biggest earner for Disney. With the help of new 3D technology, Toy Story 3 earned $1 billion worldwide.
