'The Lion King' Remake Becomes Top Grossing Animated Movie Of All Time!

The Lion King, the realistic remake of the classic 1994 animated film, has now topped the original-along with any other animated movie.

Disney's live-action adaptation of The Lion King has surpassed Frozen's $1.276 billion global taking to become the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.

That total surpasses Disney's 2012 blockbuster Frozen ($1.276 billion) as the highest-grossing animated film ever, but the studio doesn't even consider it an animated film. So far, the Jon Favreau directorial has grossed 1.33 billion dollars globally according to Box Office Mojo, thus beating Frozen's 1.27 billion dollars. He wrote that the film crossed the Rs 150 crore milestone on its 24th day of release.

The debate over whether The Lion King is live-action or animated has been going on for months, and it seems Disney is still refusing to say it's an animated movie.

The Lion King's box office amount is not adjusted for inflation.

For those wondering if The Lion King is a "live-action" or not, let us clarify that the remake is considered as a "photorealistic" computer-animated remake.

The Lion King features the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

The Lion King earned $473.1 million in the USA while it collected a whopping $861.5 million overseas.
