‘Inside Out 2’ Becomes 10th Highest-Grossing Animated Film in U.S.

After 12 days in theaters, “Inside Out 2” has made $387.8 million in North America, pushing it into the list of top ten domestic animated box offices of all time.

“Inside Out 2” has passed “Minions: The Rise of Gru” ($370M), “Finding Nemo” ($381M), and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” ($382M). It will next pass “Frozen,” which made $400.9M domestically.

Internationally, “Inside Out 2” has made $411.9M in 44 markets, for a total of $799.7M. It’s on its way to passing the global total of “Inside Out,” $859M, before inevitably hitting $1B.

When it comes to animated films, “Incredibles 2” holds the top spot for domestic box office with $608M while “Frozen II” is number one worldwide with $1.45B — unless you count the 2019 CGI remake of “The Lion King,” which totaled $1.66B. “Incredibles 2” had the largest opening weekend for an animated film, which “Inside Out 2” didn’t quite beat.

“Inside Out 2” made $18.4M in North America on Tuesday, June 25, marking the highest non-December second Tuesday of all time. The film’s first Tuesday was already record-breaking as the highest-grossing Tuesday ever for an animated film.

The sequel is the highest-grossing U.S.A. release so far this year. The movie’s success marks a big turnaround for Pixar, which was hit with a series of bad luck starting when the COVID-19 pandemic hit days after the release of “Onward” in 2020. Their next few films were released on Disney+, while “Lightyear” and “Elemental” left theaters with low box office numbers.
