Disney has already smashed a host of box office records this year thanks to Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, and it looks like they’ll be setting another this month thanks to the Disney-Pixar sequel Toy Story 4.
According to tracking estimates (via Dark Horizons), Woody, Buzz and the gang are on course to topple the $182 million debut of last year’s Incredibles 2, with Toy Story 4 looking at a domestic three-day opening weekend of $200 million.
Not only would that be a high for the Toy Story franchise (currently held by Toy Story 3 on $110.3 million), but it would also set a new opening record for an animated movie.
Three weeks out from its release, and Toy Story 4 has already set a pre-sales record, with Atom Tickets revealing that its first 24 hours of sales were 50% up on the previous top three animated pre-sellers combined.
Toy Story 4 is set for release on June 21st and features a voice cast that includes Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts, Joan Cusack, Blake Clark, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Estelle Harris, Jodi Benson, Michael Keaton, Jeff Pidgeon, Kristen Schaal, Bonnie Hunt, Timothy Dalton, Jeff Garlin, Lori Alan, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Don Rickles, and Keanu Reeves.
