The Walt Disney Company has become the first studio in history to cross $10 billion at the global box office.

Over the weekend, the studio generated $3.28 billion in North America and $6.7 billion in the rest of the world totalling $9.98 billion and is expected to officially cross the $10 billion mark today.

It doesn’t come as a surprise since Disney’s catalog of studios and companies that it has acquired over the years has become huge such as 21st Century Fox and Marvel Comics. Back in August, Disney created a record for having five movies, “Avengers: Endgame”, “Aladdin”, “Toy Story 4”, “The Lion King” and “Captain Marvel” hit $1 billion each in a single year.

“Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker” will be released in just a few weeks and already has analysts predicting that is will also reach $1 billion worldwide in the box office.
