'TS3' is the first animated film to reach $1 billion and only the seventh movie in history.
As of yesterday, Toy Story 3 had grossed more than $404.4 million domestically and $592.9 million internationally.
Walt Disney Pictures' Tim Burton-directed Alice in Wonderland also reached $1 billion worldwide a few months ago, making Disney the only studio ever to release two billion dollar blockbusters in one year. Sci-fi thriller Tron: Legacy (opening Dec. 17) should prove to be a third, making Disney's record exceptionally hard to beat.
Congratulations to director Lee Unkrich, producer Darla K. Anderson, and the entire team at Pixar and Disney on reaching this milestone.
