With more than 603,500 admissions , including 93,175 in preview, the new animated film from Illumination studios recorded the best start of the year 2022, far ahead of Jurassic World 3 and Top Gun: Maverick. Exceptional figures that distributors had not seen since 2019. At the time, Avengers: Endgame topped the charts with 692,142 admissions, followed closely by the live action The Lion King and its 630,478 admissions.
