Finding Dory breaks animated movie opening weekend record

Disney’s Finding Dory brought in an estimated $136.2 million last weekend in the U.S., according to Disney, marking the highest opening for an animated film ever.

It’s also the U.S.’ second-largest opening overall, trailing only 2015’s Jurassic World ($208.8 million).

“The original movie is so beloved and a part of our culture, we’ve dubbed it ‘Generation Nemo.’ For those who saw this movie 13 years ago, it’s the movie of their childhood, the movie they saw in college.

“At the same time, it was the biggest animation release of all-time and left an indelible mark for great reason, and now there’s an insatiable want-to-see. From our exit polls, people are loving the movie effusively.”

-Dave Hollis, Disney distribution chief
