Inside Out 2: Record-Breaking Box Office Success for Pixar

“The highly anticipated film, Inside Out 2, recently reached a major milestone at the 2024 box office, breaking the record for animated films worldwide.”

After a nine-year wait, Inside Out 2 brought back the intricate emotions residing within Riley’s mind to captivate audiences once again.

Despite being released less than a month ago, Inside Out 2 has already become the top-grossing movie of 2024, having surpassed $1 billion at the box office.

Pixar’s most recent release has become the first film to surpass the billion dollar mark since the debut of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie in July 2023.

The earnings of Dune 2 ($711 million) and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire ($567 million) were the only ones that came close to matching those of Inside Out 2.

Inside Out 2 not only broke box office records in 2024, but it also set a new record for the studio by achieving this feat in a relatively short period of time.

Despite also earning a billion dollars, other recent Pixar movies such as Finding Dory, The Incredibles 2, and Toy Story 4 achieved this milestone over the course of their entire theatrical run, which typically spanned several months.

The success of Inside Out 2 is a testament to its audience, proving that Pixar’s concerns about making sequels were unnecessary. Judging by the strong box office performance, it is clear that fans still have a strong desire for films that showcase beloved characters.

Due to the overwhelming success of the movie, it is highly likely that Pixar and Disney will approve a third installment of Inside Out.

According to Amy Poehler, who voices Joy in the movie, she has plenty of ideas in mind in case a third installment of the film is greenlit. In an interview with Yahoo UK, Poehler mentioned that the potential third movie could explore Riley’s life as she graduates from high school or experiences her first romantic relationship. However, she believes that Pixar would come up with a more imaginative and superior version of her ideas.

“Yes, it would be incredible to continue monitoring her and, in a sense, continue tracing our emotions because that is essentially what we are doing.”

Currently playing in theaters is Inside Out 2. Additionally, there are other upcoming films set to debut next month in cinemas, along with new releases available for streaming.
