The 50 Disney movies that made the most money at the US box office

Disney‘Avengers: Infinity War.’

“Avengers: Infinity War” earned the highest domestic box-office debut of all time over the weekend, and it did so by dethroning a record set by “Star Wars: Force Awakens” in 2015.

A Marvel film surpassing a “Star Wars” box-office record is, needless to say, music to the ears of The Walt Disney Company.

That’s because both films and the lucrative franchises they fit into are pieces in Disney’s ever-expanding arsenal of cinematic cash cows.

To track the Disney films that “Infinity War” will be chasing for subsequent records in the coming weeks, we turned to Box Office Mojo for data on the highest-grossing movies at the US box office that have fallen under Disney’s umbrella.

Here are the 50 highest-grossing Disney movies of all time at the domestic box office, unadjusted for inflation:

Note: This list would change significantly if it were ranked by inflation, but we went with Box Office Mojo’s available, unadjusted ranking, and included inflation adjustments for films that weren’t shown in 2018.
