Disney has earned a record-breaking $7.67 Billion at the global box office so far this year, according to The Hollywood Reporter - and there's still a quarter of 2019 left to go.

The mammoth studio is about to rack up its fourth billion dollar film of the year with its Lion King remake set to cross the $1B threshold this week. It currently sits at $962.7B globally through Sunday, July 28. Toy Story 4 is also likely to cross the global $1B threshold before leaving theaters.

That tally includes Avengers: Endgame, now the highest grossing film of all time with $2.79B in global box office receipts. Meanwhile Endgame's Marvel Cinematic Universe predecessor Captain Marvel took in $1.23B in its global run back in March, while Disney's live-action Aladdin also earned over $1B earlier this year.

Disney also shattered the previous studio yearly international box office record, with $5.09B sold in overseas ticket sales.

Disney has now tied its own current record for most $1B films in a year with four. Should Lion King and Toy Story 4 make that mark, the new tally will be six $1B+ films from Disney in one year.

And it still has (among other films) Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (10/18) and two billion dollar locks - Frozen 2 (11/22) and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (12/20) -  still to go.
