The Best Selling DVD Of All Time Is?

The Lion King
Finding Nemo
Lord of the Rings
Alfred Nobel Established the Nobel Prize After What?

Answer: Finding Nemo

The recipe for DVD sales success is definitely one part fish, one part animation, and a healthy dose of humor topped off with an emotional plot of loss and reunited family, if the box office records and DVD sales of 2003’s computer animated success Finding Nemo are any indicator.

Between the film’s release on DVD and 2006 alone, consumers snatched up a staggering 40 million copies of Finding Nemo. The intervening decade has done little to cool children’s love of the film, as many parents can attest to, and it remains a strong seller in both DVD and Blu-ray formats.

Despite the release of other popular and briskly selling titles (Frozen sold 3.2 million DVDs and Blu-rays on its release day) the combination of other formats such as Blu-ray and digital downloads combined with overall decreasing DVD sales will likely ensure that Finding Nemo remains the best selling DVD of all time.
