Infographic and Info on ‘Toy Story 3’s’ Financial Success

Milo has compiled an interesting infographic breaking down the finicnial and critical success of Pixar’s Toy Story 3. You can see that infographic below but first here are some statistics you may be interested in.

Disney’s Toy Story 3 passed the $1 billion mark at the box office this summer making it the highest-grossing animated film of all time. The film is the first animated film to break the threshold and only the seventh overall. And, with the success of Alice in Wonderland earlier this year, Disney has become the first studio to release two billion-dollar grossers in the same year. Must be those 3-D ticket prices?
