Disney’s Beauty and the Beast live action remake has earned over $1 billion at
the global box office! The news was announced by the film studio on Thursday.
This being said, Beauty and the Beast is the highest grossing movie of 2017 till
now, and also it’s the highest grossing live action movie musical in the history.
This is Disney’s second live action movie to earn more than $1 billion since Alive
in Wonderland, which was released in 2010.
Beauty and the Beast opened on theatres on March 17 in the US and later all
over the world. The fact that it made $1 billion in less than a month makes this
achievement even greater, so congrats to the cast and the crew.
