After a 14 year gap since their last cinematic adventure, Pixar's Incredibles is back and bigger than ever as Incredibles 2 has gone on to become the first animated film to earn over $600 million at the domestic box office.

Now the highest-earning animated film domestically of all time, the sequel has earned $1.16 at the global box office with $602.32 million of its combined earnings from the North American box office. It is the third Pixar film to reach the $1 billion mark after 2010's Toy Story 3 and 2016's Finding Dory.

Previously, Finding Dory had the largest domestic box office earnings of all time at $486.29 million upon its initial release. The 2016 Pixar sequel went on to earn a combined $1.02 billion at the global box office while Toy Story 3 previously was Pixar's highest-earning film at $1.06 billion worldwide.

While Incredibles 2 has long surpassed Disney Animation's Frozen which earned $400.73 domestically in 2013, the fan-favorite film remains the highest-earning animated film of all time with $1.27 billion worldwide which the Pixar film is projected to fall short of.

However, hopefully the robust box office earnings for the Incredibles sequel will convince the studio to put a new installment in development as long as it doesn't take another 14 years.

Written and directed once again by Brad Bird, Incredibles 2 stars Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Sophia Bush, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Isabella Rossellini, and Brad Bird. The film is still out in theaters and will be released on home video digitally on October 23 followed by a Blu-ray release on November 6.
