Zootopia has made it past the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office as of June 5, 2016 after 13 weeks in theatrical release. The Walt Disney Animation Studios film opened domestically with a $75 million weekend (the biggest animated opening ever for a March release) and has earned the title of the number one grossing animated movie of 2016. To date, Zootopia has brought in $337.2 million domestically and $663 million internationally.

Zootopia is now Disney’s 11th film to cross the billion dollar bar, and the second film from the studio to do so in 2016 (Captain America: Civil War is the other Disney release). It’s also only the fourth animated movie ever to make it to $1 billion in global box office receipts. And, only Frozen has grossed more among Disney Animation’s original films. Directed by Byron Howard (Bolt), Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), and Jared Bush, Zootopia features the voices of Once Upon a Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia Spencer, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Alan Tudyk, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Raymond Persi, Katie Lowes, Jesse Corti, and John DiMaggio.

Zootopia Plot: The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
