Disney is having its best year ever at the box office


With just a little less than two months left in 2016, Walt Disney Studios has already had its best year ever at the box office.

Disney announced Sunday that its Saturday box office numbers were enough to break the $2,278.6 billion domestic record the company set for itself in 2015, according to Entertainment Weekly.

So far in 2016, the company accrued $2,308.4 billion and it still has two films that haven't been released.

The biggest winners this year for Disney have included "Doctor Strange," which topped the U.S. box office for the second week in a row.

Then, of course, the highly-anticipated "Finding Dory," earned more than $1 billion globally.

"The Jungle Book," "Zootopia" and "Captain America: Civil War" also contributed to Disney's record-breaking year at the box office.

But next month, Disney will release its first-ever "Star Wars" spin-off movie, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."

The film will hit theaters on Dec. 16, following up last year's reboot, "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens."

And last, but certainly not least, Disney will release "Moana," which features the company's first Polynesian princess.

On top of that, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars in the animated feature and some of the songs were co-written by "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

"Moana" hits theaters Nov. 23.
