Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Crosses The $1 Billion Mark

Frozen 2

The other night Disney’s FROZEN was one of the deserved winners of two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Song. It isn’t often the Academy gets things right these days, but FROZEN was a magical return to form for Disney after the over-hyped and rather bland THE PRINCESS & THE FROG and TANGLED. FROZEN has now become the 15th highest grossing film of all time and joins the $1 billion club, alongside other Disney films such as ALICE IN WONDERLAND, IRON MAN 3, THE AVENGERS, and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST. It’s also the second highest grossing animated film of all time behind TOY STORY 3.

If this wasn’t impressive enough, the film is still in the US Top Ten after 15 weeks on release and is yet to open in Japan, where it will be released on 14th March. FROZEN has managed to change the formula of Disney films somewhat, by focusing predominantly on the female characters and a sister relationship, even going so far as to poke fun at the idea of falling in love with someone you’ve just met.

With the incredible song ‘Let It Go‘ becoming an internet sensation thanks to a beautiful rendition that uses 25 different languages, and some of the best animation in recent years, FROZEN is destined for Disney classic status.
