Inside Out 2 beats Incredibles 2, Pixar's new top-grossing movie

Jul 10, 2024 5:53 PM

Inside Out 2 has surpassed Incredibles 2 to become Pixar's highest-grossing movie ever, achieving global box office ticket sales of $1.251 billion. This places it among the top-grossing animated films of all time, trailing only behind Frozen, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and Frozen 2. The film has set records as the fastest animated film to reach $1 billion worldwide and has become the top-grossing movie of 2024, with a significant domestic haul of $543.5 million. This success marks a significant turnaround for Pixar, which faced challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic and recent layoffs. Despite some criticism in reviews for lacking the emotional depth of its predecessor, Inside Out 2 has clearly resonated with audiences worldwide.

What is Inside Out 2 about?

Inside Out 2 continues to explore the inner emotional world of Riley, focusing on the complexities and evolving emotions associated with adolescence. It introduces a chaotic new cast that aims to delve deeper into the confusing emotions experienced during puberty.

Inside Out was originally released in 2015, captivating audiences with its innovative concept of emotions personified as characters inside a young girl's head. The first movie was both a critical and commercial success, which set high expectations for its sequel. Pixar leveraged the foundation laid by the first film to delve deeper into the emotional experiences of growing up, maintaining its charm while expanding the narrative’s emotional depth.
