The live action remake has already beat its 1994 original by $60 million

The box-office bonanza is in spite of the mixed reaction the new film has gotten from critics: The Lion King (2019) has a Metacritic score of 55, versus The Lion King (1994)’s 88. Note though that the original’s box office of $968 million amounts to around $1.7 billion in 2019 dollars after adjusting for inflation.

The Lion King is only the latest Disney remake to cross $1 billion at the global box office, following 2010’s Alice in Wonderland ($1.02 billion), 2017’s Beauty and the Beast ($1.26 billion) and 2019’s Aladdin ($1.01 billion). 

Disney is having its best theatrical year ever, with Lion King and Aladdin remakes being just two pieces of a multibillion-dollar puzzle. Disney’s superheroes have continued to be super lucrative, with Spider-Man: Far From Home and Captain Marvel both also topping $1 billion. And then, of course, there’s Avengers: Endgame, which recently beat Avatar to become the highest-grossing movie ever.
