Alice Through the Looking Glass might be a flop for Disney, but at least Zootopia is bringing in the big bucks.

Disney’s latest animated feature reached a huge milestone over this past weekend, making over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Zootopia is the fourth animated film to reach this landmark, following in the footsteps of Frozen, Minions, and Toy Story 3.

Byron Howard and Rich Moore’s film is currently the second highest-grossing picture of 2016, right behind Captain America: Civil War. Sitting at #3 is The Jungle Book, which could eventually pass the billion dollar mark as well. It should be noted that all three of these films are under the Mouse House’s roof.

In addition to being the biggest animated film of the year thus far, Zootopia has been a massive critical success. It could very well take home 2016’s Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Then again, we’ve yet to see Finding Dory.
