On Monday the continuing success of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘Sing’ meant that 2016 passed $11.05 billion at the box office, which was 2.3 percent more than this time last year.

    Not only that, but Disney has notched up the top four grossing films of the year too. “This historic achievement is possible because all of our film studios are bringing their absolute best to the table, telling great stories of all kinds that resonate with audiences across borders, gender, and generations,” said Alan Horn, Disney Studios’ chairman said in a statement.
