‘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 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.
