Disney's animated comedy "Zootopia" has crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, becoming the second film this year to do so. "Captain America: Civil War" was the first, having accomplished the feat about two weeks ago.
"We hope there's cake," co-director Byron Howard told USA Today. "I cannot imagine a billion of anything," added his collaborator Rich Moore. "A billion is such a big number. "
"Zootopia" is only the fourth animated film to pass $1 billion, after Disney's "Frozen" ($1.277 billion), Illumination Entertainment's "Minions" ($1.159 billion) and Pixar's "Toy Story 3" ($1.063 billion), although those totals don't account for inflation.
Disney boats 11 of the 26 films to reach the box-office milestone.
Centering on the unlikely partnership between a rabbit police officer and a con-artist fox to uncover a conspiracy within the mammal metropolis, "Zootopia" arrives Tuesday on Blu-ray.
