Walt Disney Studios has become the first distributor to bring home $5 billion in worldwide box office earnings for three years in a row, the company said on Thursday. Disney reached the milestone thanks to a push from Thor: Ragnarok, which is expected to be the third Marvel Cinematic Universe movie this year to surpass $800 million worldwide, and the seventh in Marvel’s history.

Out of the top nine highest grossing films this year, Disney is responsible for four. Alongside Thor: Ragnarok are:

  • Beauty and the Beast with $1.26 billion
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 with $863.6 million
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales with $794.8 million

Disney also had help reaching the goal in the form of Pixar, with Cars 3 bringing in $383.5 million globally and Coco $178.9 million globally so far.

The $5 billion global box office accomplishment was made with Disney still having another major release slated for the end of the year. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to open December 15th and according to Variety, “Early tracking has estimated that the ninth Star Wars movie will open at around $200 million domestically in its first weekend.”
