The sequel to the Oscar-winning 2015 hit far exceeded expectations, drawing moviegoers with a cluster of new, animated emotions and the travails of growing up. The strong showing marks a box-office comeback for the Disney DIS -0.12% decrease; red down-pointing triangle unit. It was the second-biggest domestic opening weekend in Pixar’s history and the second-strongest domestic animated film opening ever, according to Comscore, in both instances behind “Incredibles 2,” which took in $182.7 million in its 2018 opening.

“Inside Out 2” grossed an estimated $140 million over the weekend internationally, giving it an estimated $295 million in global ticket sales.
