“Toy Story 3” top-grossing animated film of all time

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Woody and his pals have elbowed aside the green ogre, with Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” climbing above Paramount/DreamWorks’ “Shrek 2” to become the top-grossing animated film worldwide.

Walt Disney Studios announced Friday that “Toy” has taken in $920 million at the global box office, topping “Shrek’s” $919.8 million. Globally, it’s Disney’s fourth-highest-grossing film, trailing two of the installments in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

The 3D toon also has crossed the $400 million mark domestically, the second Disney film to hit that level, after 2006’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” which took in $423 million domestically.
