Not sure why The Lion King remake isn't considered an animated movie when it's 99.9% CGI.

Was some of it not CG? Did they just film the ground and digitally add everything else later? I was curious as I looked up how much it made and legit shocked it made that much. To me it looked like a soulless copy, so never went to see it.

It is obviously a huge hit. But, box office dollar sales records are pretty meaningless, when you consider the extremely high rate of movie ticket price increases over the last couple of decades. What would be interesting is to compare the number of tickets sold.

Wow I wasn't expecting it to pass the first Frozen movie, which was huge for its time! Or break the all time top 10!

I loved the movie for how simple and sincere it was. All other animated movies try to be deep and dramatic, as if that was what people watching colorful cartoons were looking for. No, I wanted a little dude jumping on turtles and yelling YAHOO! Not a Shakespeare play about existential pain pretending to be a cartoon.
