With a reported production budget of $183 million, not including marketing or distribution costs, the live-action remake of the classic 1992 animated film has already proved to be a financial success for Disney as it readies another live-action remake with next month's The Lion King.

Topping this weekend's box office was another Disney family-friendly film, Toy Story 4. The Pixar sequel performed slightly below high-end expectations, but still earned a strong $118 million over its opening weekend domestically, with an additional $120 million earned overseas.
