May 30, 2019 – Disney Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” (opening in theaters June 21) is the new record-holder for best first day presales for an animated title on Fandango, outselling last year’s “Incredibles 2,” the previous record-holder. Tickets went on sale on Fandango on Tuesday at 12 noon PT, and within the first 24 hours, advance ticket sales for the film outpaced other major presellers such as Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” and “Finding Dory,” as well as the live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
“Pixar’s ‘Toy Story’ movies mean the world to so many fans, and that’s very much reflected in the record presales for ‘Toy Story 4,’” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “It’s been nearly a decade since the adventures of Woody, Buzz and friends played out on the big screen, and so anticipation for this fourth installment is incredibly high.”
