It’s no surprise that Disney-Pixar‘s long-awaited sequel “Incredibles 2” was a big hit at the box office, but now the movie is officially the highest-grossing animated film in the United States.

Since arriving in theaters on June 15, the follow-up to “The Incredibles” (2004) has earned just over $600 million, according to Box Office Mojo. This achievement puts the movie ahead of Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory” (2016), which previously held the top spot with $486.3 million. According to Complex, this also makes “Incredibles 2” the fifth highest-grossing Disney film behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($936.7 millon), “Black Panther” ($700.1 million), “Avengers: Infinity War” ($678.8 million), and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” ($620.2 million).

Globally, “Incredibles 2” earned $1.16 billion. While those numbers are impressive, the movie has not topped Disney’s “Frozen,” the 2013 mega-hit which earned $1.27 billion in global box office.
