Tangled has become the fourth biggest animated opening in Disney's history, following a strong weekend at the UK box office.

The 3D comedy adventure took £5.1 million over its opening weekend in the UK. Tangled rates behind Toy Story 3 (£11.5m), Monsters, Inc (£6.5m) and Up (£6.4m), while it is the tenth highest animated opening in UK history.

Meanwhile, in the US, Tangled was the highest opening film ever for Walt Disney Animation Studios and the second biggest Thanksgiving weekend opener behind Toy Story 2.

Disney now holds all top five three-day Thanksgiving opening records in industry history (Toy Story 2, Tangled, Enchanted, 101 Dalmatians and A Bugs Life).

In terms of consumer products, key items include dolls and play-sets, role play, books, posters, dress-up, home and stationery.
