‘Frozen 2’ Crowned Highest-Grossing Animated Film Ever At Worldwide Box Office As It Skates Past Original

After becoming Disney’s 6th film of 2019 to cross the $1B threshold worldwide when it hit the milestone in mid-December, Frozen 2 has now capitalized on holiday play to become the biggest animated movie of all time globally. With an estimated $1.325B, the Chris Buck/Jennifer Lee-helmed sequel has iced the previous record holder, Frozen ($1.281B), as well as Incredibles 2 ($1.243B), to take over the crown. The current split on F2 is $449.9M domestic and $875.3M at the international box office. The top three animated titles ever on a worldwide basis are now all Disney Animation/Pixar releases.

Frozen 2 has double Golden Globe nominations tonight, in both the Animated Feature and Best Original Song categories. It will go up against stablemates Toy Story 4 and The Lion King in the animated race (although The Lion King officially falls under Disney’s Live Action umbrella) and against Tlk in Original Song.
