‘Big Hero 6’ Hits $500 Million Mark at Global Box Office
This makes the film the fifth Disney animated film to make $500 million worldwide. The other films are Frozen, The Lion King, Tangled, and Aladdin.
Big Hero 6 earned $218.5 million at the domestic box office and will soon be the third highest grossing Disney Animation film in history.
At the international box office the film has earned $287 million, with $66.7 million of that earned in Japan where it was the number one film for five weeks.
