    Pixar's Finding Dory continues to impress at the box office. The movie has now cleared $900 million worldwide, becoming the fourth Disney movie this year to reach that mark, Deadline reports.
    The others include Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion), Zootopia ($1 billion), and The Jungle Book ($949 million). As of May, across all of its 2016 releases, Disney movies combined for more than $5 billion at the box office, which was a new record for any film studio in history.
    [​IMG]Disney movies also made $5 billion in 2015, but this figure was not reached until December 20, after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This year stands to be even better for Disney, as Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Rogue One lands in December. Additionally, Disney's animated movie Moana comes out this Thanksgiving, while Marvel (owned by Disney) will release Doctor Strange in November.
    Moving back to Finding Dory, it's made more than $476 million in the US and $423.5 million internationally. As Deadline points out, the movie has yet to be released in Italy and Germany.
    Finding Dory was a success from the start, opening on June 17 to $135 million--the highest-ever opening for an animated movie in the US. With its $476 million in the US, Finding Dory is the No. 1 domestic movie this year (ahead of Captain America: Civil War, with$407.5 million) and is the highest-grossing animated film in US history. The previous record-holder was DreamWorks' Shrek 2, which made $441.2 million at the box office in 2004, according to Box Office Mojo.
    Compared against other Pixar movies, Finding Dory is the third highest-grossing movie from the acclaimed studio. The No. 1 Pixar movie was Toy Story 3 ($1.06 billion), followed by the original Finding Nemo ($936 million).
