Frozen: Over $1 Billion

Aside from winning two Oscars on Sunday night, including Disney’s first best animated feature win in history, the animation also crossed the $1 billion-mark at the worldwide box office.

The movie is the studio’s seventh release to reach the milestone, joining:

“Marvel’s The Avengers”

“Iron Man 3”

“Toy Story 3”

“Alice in Wonderland,”

The second and the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

Having earned an estimated $388.8 million Stateside and $611.5 million internationally since its late November release, “Frozen” is the second highest-grossing animated film of all time globally, and the most profitable non-sequel animated picture ever.

Japan Not Included

Even more impressive is the fact that the film joined the billion-dollar B.O. club before debuting in Japan. It will bow in theaters there on March 14 and will be released on DVD in the U.S. four days later.

The musical, directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, was Disney’s biggest opening, with a record-breaking Thanksgiving holiday debut of $93.6 million.

It’s also remained in the top 10 at the domestic Box-OfficeO. during all 14 weeks of its wide release, the longest run by any film in four years.
