It was announced today that Dr. Strange’s big weekend has pushed Disney across the $6 billion global box office mark for 2016. This is the first time in its history that Disney has eclipsed $6 billion and it aint over yet folks.

With Dr. Strange just starting out and almost sure-bet blockbusters Moana and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ready for release before the end of the year, Disney has plenty of box office success left in its tank for the remaining weeks of 2016. It will be interesting to see where they end up.

In case you were wondering, the record is the $6.89 billion Universal earned last year. Totally doable for Disney.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
