And the movie quickly became one of the highest grossing movies of all time! Just last month, the live action adaptation of Aladdin hit theaters, and became the #1 movie in the country. And soon, Toy Story 4 will come out this summer. The year has just begun, and Disney has already dominated the year. In fact, Disney released a look at some of its upcoming movies as well.
