The Lion King remake has crossed $1.3 billion at the international box office, officially beating out Frozen’s $1.27 billion to become the top-grossing animated film of all time.

Fans are happy with this news, especially Nigerians who feel represented, sort of, all thanks to The Lion King album curated by Beyonce herself, which features Nigerian artistes. However, according to CinemaBlend, Disney doesn’t want to label the film animated, insisting that it is ‘live-action.

Asked about this, director Jon Favreau said, “It depends what standard you’re using. Because there’s no real animals, and there’s no real cameras, and there’s not even any performance that’s being captured that’s underlying data that’s real. Everything is coming through the hands of artists. But to say it’s animated, I think, is misleading as far as what the expectations might be.”

Whatever be the case, Disney wins either way as The Lion King passes the worldwide grosses of Incredibles 2 and Frozen, dethroning Frozen as the highest-grossing animated movie ever.
