"The Lion King," the photo-realistic remake of the 1994 animated classic, is the latest Disney film
to cross $1 billion at the global box office.

Three other Disney productions have hit that milestone this year: "Avengers: Endgame," "Captain Marvel" and the live action remake of "Aladdin." "Endgame" made that much in its opening weekend alone back in April.

"The Lion King" is Disney's fourth billion-dollar film of 2019, but it likely won't be the last. Pixar's "Toy Story 4," which was released in June, hovers at around $920 million and could cross the $1 billion mark in the coming weeks.

Disney also has two big films premiering at the end of year with "Frozen 2" in November and the final chapter of the Skywalker saga, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," in December.
