When it comes to making big money with good storytelling, there’s no denying that Disney knows what it’s doing.
Though the company first became well known in the feature world for its family fun and heartwarming animated features, in recent decades it has acquired a number of incredibly lucrative franchises and companies including Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar.
With those powerhouse properties under their belt, they’ve been churning out hit after hit at the box office, and huge numbers of people are turning out at theaters worldwide for the experience.
Below are the 20 of the top grossing Disney movies of all time as of this publication date. The listed numbers don’t adjust for inflation, and they are just the total worldwide gross,provided by Box Office Mojo.
These massive numbers don’t account for any of the other major sources of income a successful property can bring in, like spin offs, TV shows, Broadway plays, park attractions, video games, branded experiences, and merchandise, all of which bring in even more profit for each franchise.
