Despite mixed reviews which billed it as a visually impressive, yet soulless remake of the Disney classic, 2019’s The Lion King is now officially the highest grossing animated film of all time.

The Jon Favreau-directed film – which is now on its fourth week in the U.S. – has grossed $ $1.34 billion, dethroning 2013’s ‘Frozen’, which earned $1.28 billion.

And while The Lion King is technically a part of Disney’s roster of ‘live-action’ remakes, the film’s use of ‘photorealistic’ visual effects is apparently enough to consider it as an animated flick.

The Lion King is currently ranked as the 12th highest grossing film of all time.
