The movie, which was made by Disney's Pixar studio, has now surpassed $1 billion Dollars in box office receipts worldwide. The studio is now the record holder for the most billion-dollar movies in a single year. Although the film was critiqued for "only" bringing in $120 million on its opening weekend, that didn't slow it down over the summer. After two months in theaters, the movie grossed $421 million in North America and $579.9 million overseas. In the United Kingdom, Toy Story 4 has made $75.2 million to become the second-biggest animated release of all time in that country and it is still going strong in Japan, with $77 million and counting.

Directed by Josh Cooley, "Toy Story 4" sees the return of Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), as the band of plastic heroes teaches a confused spork named Forky (Tony Hale) what it means to be a toy.
