Top grossing Disney movies of all time
Disney and everyone Disney works with have made so many movies. It would be almost impossible to find every single movie that has ever been made with help from Disney and the company that runs it. However, there is an easy way to find out what movies have been the most successful of all time. Take a look down below to find out what movies have stuck around throughout the years and have continued bringing in revenue, even after decades.
One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
This iconic movie is one of the top grossing Disney films because it brings in a dramatic adventure for the people watching the movie. The movie is based on a book about a woman who wants to kidnap puppies and sell their fur for a lot of money. The book followed the parents of these puppies on their adventure to rescue the pups from the evil woman.
The movie takes the original meaning of the story, but sets it out to be a little bit more realistic, even in cartoon form, allowing the human owners to take the lead in rescuing and protecting these puppies from the evil hands of Cruella de Vil and her minions.
The movies were so popular that there were at least 3 other adaptions released and plenty of reboots to redo the story with whatever new technology became available.
Ever since Disney bought rights to Marvel films, these movies have started climbing their way up to the top of the popular movies in Disney’s hands. One of the most popular, and most grossing, Marvel movies that Disney helped create was Avengers: Endgame. This is the final Avengers movie, at least for the Avengers we have grown to know and love, which is why it takes second place.
The Lion King (1994)
This is another older film that is still considered one of the most popular movies that Disney has ever released. This was the first ever movie that Disney had released that was entirely based on an original idea rather than a fictional world or a fairy tale that you grew up reading about. The movie is based on a lion kingdom and how the cubs learn to take care of it as they grow older. The evil villain is another lion and the rest of the characters are animals that you would find in Africa.
It is still one of the most popular Disney films, even if it isn’t bringing in as much money as it did when it was originally released. This is why it is taking third place in the top grossing Disney movies list.
For a movie that came out way back in 1940, this movie is still one of the top grossing movies that Disney has ever had a hand in releasing. The movie is one of the top grossing because it features a whole new realm of magic that no one could have ever imagined seeing back then.
And even now, the movie remains popular due to the iconic main character that everyone knows and loves, Mickey Mouse, being the star of the show in this musical adventure. Kids and adults alike enjoy the movie to this day as if it were brand new.
