List of highest-grossing animated films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Included in the list are charts of the top box-office earners, a chart of high-grossing animated films by the calendar year, a timeline showing the transition of the highest-grossing animated film record, and a chart of the highest-grossing animated film franchises and series. All charts are ranked by international theatrical box office performance where possible, excluding income derived from home video, broadcasting rights and merchandise.

Animated family films have performed consistently well at the box office, with Disney enjoying lucrative re-releases prior to the home video era with Walt Disney Animation Studios, who have produced films such as Aladdin and The Lion King, both of which were the highest-grossing films of their respective years. Disney Animation also enjoyed later success with the Frozen films and Zootopia in addition to Pixar, of which the films from Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Inside Out have been the best performers; beyond Disney and Pixar, franchises such as Shrek, Ice Age, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, and Despicable Me have met with the most success.

An animated feature film is defined as a motion picture with a running time of more than 40 minutes, in which movement and characters' performances are created using a frame-by-frame technique. Motion capture by itself is not an animation technique. In addition, a significant number of the major characters must be animated, and animation must figure in no less than 75 per cent of the picture's running time.

Highest-grossing animated films[edit]

The chart below lists the highest-grossing animated films. Figures are given in United States dollars (USD). Many films that were released during the 20th century do not appear on this list as figures have not been adjusted for inflation, and as a result the films on this list have all had a theatrical run (including re-releases) since 2004. Films that have not played since then do not appear on the chart due to ticket price inflation, population size, and ticket purchasing trends not being considered. If inflation were adjusted for, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs would appear at the top of the chart with an adjusted gross of $1,977,000,000.[2][nb 1] All except two—The Simpsons Movie and the original 1994 version of The Lion King—are computer-animated films. Despicable Me is the most represented franchise with five out of six films in the top 50 highest-grossing animated films. The top 12 films on this list, each having grossed in excess of $1 billion worldwide, are also ranked between 9th and 50th among the top 50 highest-grossing films of all time.

Highest-grossing animated films by year[edit]

The top-grossing animated films in the years 1937, 1940, 1942, 1950, 1953, 1955, 1961, 1967, 1992, 1994, 1995, 2004, 2010, 2013, 2020 and 2024 were also the highest-grossing films overall those years.[# 180]

Computer-animated films have been the highest earners in 1995, 1998–2019, 2021 and 2023 while 1975 and 1993 are the only years when a stop motion animated feature grossed the highest. Traditional animated films have topped every other year.

The Ice Age franchises have had the most entries be the highest-grossing animated films of the year with four films, while The Rescuers and Finding Nemo all had both films in each respective franchise be the highest-grossing animated films of the year they were released.

Disney films has top the list the most of any studio topping the list 32 times.

Animal Farm, Out of an Old Man's Head, Fritz the Cat, and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train were the only four adult animated films on the chart.

The top-grossing animated film of the year has usually been an American film, with a few exceptions. Japanese animated features have topped the list at seven occasions: in 1978, 1979, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1987, and 2020; the list has also been topped by a Spanish film in 1945, French in 1949, Swedish in 1968 and 1974, Norwegian in 1975, Belgian in 1976 and Canadian in 1985.

Timeline of highest-grossing animated films[edit]

At least eight animated films have held the record of highest-grossing animated film at different times. Four of these were Disney films and two by Pixar. Shrek 2, made by DreamWorks Animation, is the only film on the list not produced by Disney or Pixar.

Snow White held the record for the longest, with 55 years, while Finding Nemo held it for the shortest period of a year. The original Lion King was the last non-CG animated film to hold the record. Shrek 2 and Toy Story 3 are the only sequels to hold the record. Finding Nemo was the first CG animated film.

All of these films are still among the highest-grossing animated films except Snow White, and only Snow White, Aladdin and Shrek 2 are not also among the highest-grossing films. The Lion King is the only franchise to hold the record twice.

Toy Story is the only franchise to hold the record on multiple occasions doing so with the first three films. Pixar is the only studio to hold the record on multiple occasions doing so six times, while A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo both held the record the shortest: less than a year. Shrek 2, made by DreamWorks Animation, is the only film on the list not produced by Disney or Pixar.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Inflation adjustment is carried out using the International Monetary Fund's global Consumer price index.[3] The index is uniformly applied to the grosses in the chart published by Guinness World Records in 2014, beginning with the 2014 index. The figures in the above chart take into account inflation that occurred in 2014, and in every available year since then, with 2016 the most recent year available.
  2. ^ a b c d Disney, which produced The Lion King (2019), considered the film to be live-action despite the entire film (aside from its opening shot) being photorealistic animated.[5] Others, such as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (presenter of the Golden Globe Awards), deemed it to be animated based on specified criteria.[6]
  3. ^ a b c d Box Office Mojo stopped updating its main total for Frozen in August 2014, while it was still in release. The total listed here incorporates subsequent earnings in Japan, Nigeria, Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany up to the end of 2015, but omits earnings in Turkey, Iceland, Brazil, and Australia (2016) which amount to a few hundred thousand dollars. The total is rounded to $1 million to compensate for the numerical inaccuracy.
  4. ^ Snow White earned $8.5 million in gross rental upon its initial release, in the process becoming the highest-grossing sound film. The gross rental is the distributor's share of the box-office gross and was more commonly reported than the exhibition gross up to the 1970s.
  5. ^ It is possible Aladdin never took the record. Aladdin's release (1992–93) coincided with a Snow White reissue, and it is possible that Snow White ended up grossing more. Snow White had grossed a total of $330 million up to 1987, and then added a further $88 million in North America from its 1987 and 1993 reissues; it is unknown how much Snow White made from these reissues outside of North America, but if the foreign gross matched or exceeded the North American gross then Snow White would have earned more.

The 2015 edition of Guinness World Records does not provide an explicit figure for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. However, it does state that it is one of only two pre-1955 films—the other being Gone with the Wind—that are among the adjusted top ten. It placed tenth in the 2012 edition, and the eleventh highest-grossing film according to the 2015 edition is The Exorcist, which has grossed $1.794 billion adjusted to 2014 prices. The adjusted grosses for the other films on the chart increased by 4.2 percent between 2011 and 2014 according to Guinness, and using this apparent rate of inflation would take the adjusted gross for Snow White from $1.746 billion at 2011 prices to $1.819 billion at 2014 prices.

Founded in 1972, [sic] the [Nelvana] company earned an international reputation in 1984, after American director George Lucas—best known for the Star Wars movie series—hired the studio to create two animated TV spin-off series, Ewoks and Droids. A year later, Ohio's American Greetings Corp. and Kenner Parker Toys Inc. commissioned Nelvana to produce the animated Care Bears Movie. Earning $34 million in 1985, it became at the time the world's most profitable non-Disney animated movie. Buoyed by that success, Nelvana made two sequels. But the last of the trilogy, the 1987 Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland, which Nelvana produced for just under $5 million, only broke even. Conceded Hirsh: 'It was just one [sequel] too many.'
