The studio — which commands nearly a third of the market share — set the previous industry record of $7.6 billion in 2016.

Disney's domination has reached a new high.

The studio on Sunday announced that it is set to cross the $10 billion mark in 2019 global ticket sales, including $3.28 billion domestically and $6.72 billion internationally.

When including Fox titles the studio has released since the Disney-21st Century Fox merger in late March, that number grows to $11.94 billion.

Disney blew past the previous industry record of $7.6 billion all the way back in July.

The question now is how high Disney will fly by the time the year wraps, considering it has yet to release Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is set to open in less than two weeks.

Frozen 2 is the latest mega-win for the studio. The sequel finished Sunday with a massive global total of $919.7 million and is now assured of becoming the sixth 2019 Disney release to join the billion dollar club after Avengers: Endgame —  the top-grossing film of all time with $2.8 billion — The Lion King ($1.66 billion), Captain Marvel ($1.13 billion), Toy Story 4 ($1.07 billion) and Aladdin ($1.05 billion).

The previous record for the number of $1 billion-plus films released by one studio in a given year was four, a milestone achieved by Disney in 2016.

Among Fox films, Ford v Ferrari has been a major fall win, grossing $167.6 million to date. Disney released and marketed the adult drama.

Domestically, Disney commands roughly a third of the market share.
