'Frozen's Now Officially the Highest-Grossing Animated Film Of All Time
Since its release this past Thanksgiving, Disney's Frozen's been on an unstoppable roll, like a really well-build snowball, or an avalanche, or some sort of other cold weather-related rolling thing. Its fantastic success can add another huge accolade to its already impressive list now: Frozen 's officially the highest-grossing animated film. Ever.
As Disney said in a statement announcing the milestone:
This weekend, Disney’s Frozen officially became the highest grossing animated film of all time, and with $1,072.4 million worldwide, [Frozen] has also entered the list of the top 10 biggest films of all time. The Walt Disney Studios’ seventh billion-dollar release, Frozen has earned an estimated $398.4 million at the domestic box office and $674 million internationally.
This comes on the heels of several other big things for the film, including Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez' Oscar win for Best Original Song and the film's truly bonkers DVD sales. It's generally been a groundbreaking film for Disney, surpassing both The Lion King and Finding Nemo, becoming the first Disney film to pass the billion dollar mark and the first to win the Academy Award for best animated feature.
There seems to be, to put it simply, no stopping Frozen.
