Disney’s Frozen II has become the studio’s sixth release of the year to join the billion-dollar club, having blazed past the milestone mark at the global box office.
The sequel title to 2013’s phenomenon, Frozen II has become the eighth title of 2019 to pass the $1bn mark this far. The film has grossed $366.5 million domestically, and $666 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $1.032bn.
In 2013, the original Frozen took home $1.28 billion at the global box office to become the top-grossing animated film of all time. In the same year, the feature film also took numerous awards, including the Oscar for best animated feature.
Frozen II is currently the top-grossing animated title of all time in China with $111.5 million. In the UK it has taken $49.6 million.
It now joins an elite club of seven other titles to have passed the $1bn mark this year, including Avengers: Endgame (with $2.79bn globally), The Lion King ($1.65bn), Spider-Man: Far From Home ($1.31bn), Captain Marvel ($1.12bn), Toy Story 4 ($1.07bn), Joker ($1.06bn), and Aladdin ($1.05bn).
The milestone was achieved just a week after Disney revealed it had amassed more than $10bn in total worldwide ticket sales last year.
