Biggest animated opening for Disney post Covid: Despite the Disney+ fever for Pixar’s Elemental ($154.4M domestic, $496.4M WW) last summer and Encanto ($96M, $256M WW), the latter released during Covid, the Mouse House has been made the laughing stock by a bunch of Minions. But now their emotions are finally getting a laugh.

First movie to open to $100M+ domestic since Barbie: Why is that important even though Inside Out 2 didn’t beat Barbie‘s $162M debut? Because after a marketplace that’s been battered by two strikes, leaving a lack of consistent tentpole inventory, the fact that a movie can come out and do five-quad business screams that theatrical still works.

Fourth highest domestic PG-rated opening ever which also gives Disney the top 4 in industry history that being The Lion King ($191.7M), Incredibles 2 ($182.6M), Beauty and the Beast ($174.7M) and Inside Out 2.

Second biggest domestic Monday for Pixar, third biggest for an animated movie at $22.2M: Inside Out 2 ranks behind Incredibles 2‘s $23.6M. Among all animated movies’ first Monday at the B.O., IO2 is behind Incredibles 2 (June 18, 2018) and 2004’s Shrek 2‘s $23.4M (May 31).
