Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” has officially dethroned Paramount/DreamWorks’ “Shrek 2″ as the top-grossing animated film worldwide.

Walt Disney Studios announced that “Toy Story” has taken in $920 million at the global box office, topping “Shrek’s” $919.8 million. Globally, it’s Disney’s fourth-highest-grossing film, trailing two of the installments in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

In 1995, Pixar launched the “Toy Story” franchise, with its central characters of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and their fellow toys.

Released June 18, “Toy Story 3,” directed by Lee Unkrich, recorded Pixar’s highest-grossing opening weekend, taking in $109 million in North America, and was the 11th Disney/Pixar title to debut in the No. 1 position on its opening weekend of wide release.

Fans can have all the Woody and Buzz the want when “Toy Story 3″ hits DVD and Blu-ray November 2.
