FROZEN is now the highest grossing animated movie ever made

1 min read

In news with hard proof and actual facts, here’s a slice of business that has the house of mouse grinning from ear to oversized ear. Frozen recently wrapped up at the box office, staying the top ten for weeks and banking a ton of cash. How much cash? Enough moola to officially become the highest grossing animated movie, ever made.


According to Box Office Mojo, Anna and Elsa helped net over $398.4 million in North American markets for Disney. Throw in the considerable international sum of $674 million from the international audiences who wanted to experience a winter wonderland, and that equates to over $1.072 billion in revenue. I repeat, this is not an April Fools joke. This is real.

In animated circles, that makes Frozen the financial king of the box office. In total movie numbers, that also makes Frozen the tenth highest grossing movie of all time, just behind The Dark Knight in ninth place and ahead of another Disney flick, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. Frozen is already racking up records now that it has hit domestic release on DVD and Blu-Ray, capping off a great run for Disney.

2013 has been one of the best years ever for that company, with movies such as Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World also notching up various hundreds and billions of dollars. As for the previous record holder for highest grossing animated movie of all time? Don’t feel too bad for that dethroned champ. That honour previously belonged to another Disney movie.

The Lion King.
