Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin is continuing to be the surprise hit of the summer, and the film is about to cross another box office milestone.
Aladdin is set to become only the 55th film in history to gross $900 million at the global box office, and Disney’s 6th live-action title to reach this mark along with Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and three of the Pirates of the Caribbean films.
Disney is having quite the year at the box office as the studio has grossed over $5.6 billion globally, thanks to Captain Marvel $1,128,258,330, Dumbo $351,795,003, Avengers: Endgame $2,766,340,683, Penguins $7,699,452, Toy Story 4 $519,802,847, and of course Aladdin.
Still to come from the studio is Disney’s retelling of The Lion King which is already breaking advanced ticket sales records for Fandango and Atom Tickets, and is on track to gross over $150 million in its opening weekend in two weeks. As well as, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Frozen 2, and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s animated classic “Aladdin.”
