Disney’s Aladdin Is Crossing the $900 Million Mark Today


With a global total to date of $897.3 million, The Walt Disney StudiosAladdin is crossing the $900 million mark at the worldwide box office today. It is one of Disney’s biggest live-action hits of all time, joining Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, and three of the Pirates of the Caribbean films in reaching this milestone. It’s the third-biggest film of the year domestically and worldwide, and the biggest film of the year to date outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Domestically, the movie has remained among the top performers of the summer since it opened at No. 1 over Memorial Day Weekend with $117 million, continuing in the top five and recently surpassing the $300 million mark in its sixth weekend of release. The domestic total to date is $313 million.

Internationally, the film opened No. 1 in nearly all markets during its run and has brought in over $584 million. Among the top markets are Japan with $72 million; Korea, where the film returned to No. 1 in its sixth weekend and has grossed $63 million; and China with $53 million, as well as UK with $43 million and Mexico with $32 million.

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, Aladdin is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s Aladdin. The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Alan Tudyk as the parrot Iago; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim.
