The animated heroes of “Toy Story 3” sold $109 million worth of tickets during their opening weekend at the North American box office, reviving slow summer sales, according to estimates issued on Sunday by distributor Walt Disney Co.

The film scored the best debut for a film produced by Disney’s Pixar Animation unit. The old mark of $70.5 million was set by “The Incredibles” in May 2004.

Pixar’s perfect record of 11 No. 1 movies also remains intact, as expected. Woody the cowboy, Buzz Lightyear the spaceman and their pals in the toy chest starred in Pixar’s debut release, “Toy Story,” in 1995, a film that inaugurated the era of computer-generated animation. They returned in November 1999 with a sequel that opened to $57.3 million.
