How Far Will Moana Go?: Disney's 'Moana' Wins Third Consecutive Box Office Weekend

The latest Disney animated movie, "Moana," continues to dominate the domestic box office as it took in an estimated $18.8 million to top sales for a third consecutive weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Moana," which stars Dwayne Johnson and features the music of "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, has now earned $238.8 million globally.

"Moana" is the latest example of Disney's dominance this year, but the studio has saved likely its best performer for its final release of the year.

Next weekend "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", the first ever "Star Wars" standalone movie, will open and projections of the movie have it earning between $280 million-$350 million in its first five days in theaters.

Domestically, it would mark the fourth consecutive weekend a Disney title was number one at the box office, and it's likely Disney would own the box office the last two weekends of 2016 as "Rogue One" looks to dominate the rest of the year.
