2019 belongs to Disney, after having a record breaking success with its Marvel properties. Disney's animation subsidiary, Pixar has picked up another accolade. Toy Story 4, the fourth film in the franchise, has smashed the global box office record for an animated movie.

According to reports, the film has raked in $238m since opening worldwide over the weekend, with the Latin American and European markets showing strong numbers but failed to meet expectations in China. For a franchise that has existed for nearly 25 years, Toy Story has earned well over a billion dollars through ticket sales alone. Even though fears that audiences would be lukewarm considering that Toy Story 3 ended perfectly, strong reviews from critics have motivated audiences.

Toy Story 4 brings its familiar characters like Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and brings new characters including doll Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks), Bunny and Ducky (Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key) and stunt motorbike rider Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves) and Forky (Tony Hale)
