BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Disney Pixar's "Toy Story 3" crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office Friday, the Hollywood film studio announced.
The movie became the highest-grossing animated film of all time two weeks ago.
The Walt Disney Studios previously celebrated the $1 billion milestone this year with its live-action blockbuster "Alice in Wonderland."
Disney is the first studio to have two movies earn $1 billion in a year.
"It's been an incredible year as we saw the Pixar team bring Buzz and Woody back to the big screen and watched Tim Burton's vision for 'Alice in Wonderland' take the world by storm," Rich Ross, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, said in a statement Friday. "These box office triumphs prove that creative storytelling brought to life by imaginative, inspired and talented professionals is something audiences respond to the world over."
