The Lion King has far greater influence than just entertaining hordes of young children and those of us who love a good story, told well.

The movies and theatrical productions of this monster hit have raked in the cash.

The opening weekend of this year’s live action movie release generated $269 million at the international box office. For perspective, the beloved 1994 animated version grossed $968.5 million.

According to Forbes, the film's US takings are $512.7 million in 40 days of release, and it has earned a robust $1.01 billion internationally, giving it a current global cume of $1.5 billion.
