Disney is roaring with pride as its musical "The Lion King" scores over $6.2 billion.

The musical now has the highest box office earnings in entertainment history.

The show jumped to the top spot this summer when it surpassed "The Phantom of the Opera."

In comparison, "Avatar" is the highest grossing film in history with $2.8 billion worldwide.

The figure is a total of ticket sales from Lion King productions around the world from New York, to London and Tokyo.

The Lion King has been on Broadway since 1997.
