Incredibles 2 Is Pixar’s Highest Grossing Film Of All Time

Who says waiting 15 years to make a sequel doesn’t pay off? After waiting all this time, audiences were recently treated to a follow-up to what is arguably one of Pixar’s strongest entries in its ever-growing filmography. Of course, I am talking about Incredibles 2, Brad Bird’s sequel to the 2004-original, which featured a family of superheroes in a world where superheroes had become illegal.

Luckily for us fans, Incredibles 2 managed to be a worthy successor, embellishing on the idea of the world hungering for more supers, despite the laws that suggest otherwise. While it didn’t have the advantage of coming out to when superhero films weren’t all the range, it did have enough nuance to captivate those who were interested in what it had to say — and there was no shortage of folks who went out to see it.

According to Box Office Mojo, Incredibles 2 has now made a whopping $601 million domestically — far outpacing the second-place film, Finding Dory, which made $486.3 million — but that’s not all. Incredibles 2 also did admirably overseas, and as a result, has taken in nearly $1.2 billion worldwide, just north of Toy Story 3‘s $1.1 billion cume back in 2010 — nearly a decade ago.

Thanks to this performance, it is officially the highest grossing Pixar film to date, and while it’s not likely the highest grossing worldwide when adjusted for inflation, it IS the highest grossing domestically when inflation is taken into account. It may have taken some time to reach this point, but Incredibles 2 is an unquestionable success, and while it’d be easy to point to this as proof that sequels are the way to go, I think it’s especially telling that the film wasn’t made until the director felt he had something to say.

What do you think of the film, and do you think it deserves the No. 1 spot in Pixar’s catalog of films? Let us know down below!
