THE LION KING Dethrones BLACK PANTHER To Become Tenth Highest-Grossing Movie Worldwide

Since hitting theaters in July, Disney's The Lion King has now roared to a worldwide box office total of $1.351 billion, cracking the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time (surpassing Black Panther).

There's a new king in town.

Jon Favreau's live-action remake of The Lion King has surpassed Marvel's Black Panther at the worldwide box office to become the tenth highest-grossing film ever.

According to Box Office Mojo, The Lion King now sits at $1.351 billion worldwide, knocking 2018's Black Panther down to the 11th spot at $1.346 billion. At the end of the day, they are both under the Disney banner so Mickey Mouse is probably pleased either way.

Of The Lion King's worldwide total, $487.4 million (36%) has come stateside while the remaining $853.8 million has been made overseas in international markets.

This is just the latest milestone for The Lion King which passed Frozen — another Disney pic — last week to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time. Of course, with Frozen 2 — a very highly anticipated sequel — hitting theaters this November, it'll be interesting to see if Disney can break its own records again.

At this point, it seems like Disney is competing against itself at the box office. Of the top six highest-grossing movies of 2019, Disney is responsible for five of them: Avengers: Endgame (#1, $2.795B), The Lion King (#2, $1.351B), Captain Marvel (#3, $1.128B), Aladdin (#5, $1.035B), and Toy Story (#6, $1.002B).
