The box office numbers have also been huge. Previously, the seat was taken by "Finding Dory", after it earned $135 million in its opening weekend in 2016.

Incredibles 2, the long-awaited return of a quirky animated superhero family from Disney-Pixar, reigned supreme at the North American box office, raking in a record $180 million in its debut, industry estimates showed Sunday.

"Incredibles 2" now also takes the spot for the eighth-biggest domestic opening of all time, beating out 2017's "Beauty and the Beast" for the best debut for a PG-rated film. "The combination of the Pixar brand and Disney's perfectly executed marketing and distribution strategy made the film an instant classic and a box office juggernaut". The film brought in an estimated $71.5 million on Friday, including $18.5 million from Thursday previews.

"We're so thrilled", Taff said.

A sequel to Bird's hit 2004 film The Incredibles, the film follows the further adventures of the super-powered Parr family trying to balance home life with saving the world and gaining the public's trust. While Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell and Samuel L Jackson reprise their voice-acting roles, Huck Milner, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener and Jonathan Banks join the cast.

Lewis went on to say that she was not calling for a boycott of Incredibles 2, but she did express concern about the lack of warning notices. Brad Bird returned to write and direct the sequel. The movie earned $51.5 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $231.5 million. Though every previous Disney-released "Star Wars" adventure has managed to fly past the $1 billion mark, "Solo" is struggling to cross $400 million.

In India, Incredibles 2 will release in June 22.
