‘Finding Dory’ Has HUGE Opening Weekend

Most of us expected the opening weekend for Disney’s “Finding Dory” would be a big one and it certainly did not disappoint. The “Finding Nemo” sequel took in $136.2 million this weekend, making it the top opening weekend ever for an animated film. Further, it was the 18th largest opening weekend haul ever.

Disney is on a roll this year, already with two (“Captain America: Civil War” and “Zootopia”) billion dollar movies and another (“The Jungle Book”) knocking on the door. It appears “Dory” will be joining them soon in that prestigious club.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times.I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets.
