Disney's "The Lion King" blew past industry expectations with a huge box office opening last weekend.

The film, which is a reboot of the studio's 1994 animated classic, has made an estimated $531 million worldwide in 10 days of release.

That includes an estimated $185 million opening this weekend in North America.

Analysts had projected that the film would make around $150 million for its domestic opening.

"The Lion King" also made $98 million in China — the world's second largest movie market.

"The Lion King" has an all star cast that includes Beyoncé, Donald Glover, John Oliver and Seth Rogen all lending their voice work to the film.
