'The Lion King

Disney’s remake of the 1994 animatic classic “The Lion King” was ruler of the box office on its opening weekend.

According to CNN.com, the film has made an estimated $531 million worldwide in 10 days of release. That includes an estimated $185 million opening this weekend in North America.

Analysts had projected that the film would make around $150 million for its domestic opening.

“The Lion King” also made $98 million in China — the world's second largest movie market.

Directed by Jon Favreau, the 2019 cast includes Beyonce, Donald Glover and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The film is the 9th highest-grossing opening ever, the biggest opening for the month of July and for a PG-rated film.

"The Lion King" was also the second highest-grossing opening of the year behind "Avengers: Endgame.”
