The musical has now made just under $1.22 billion at the international box office since its debut last November, cruising ahead of such films as “Iron Man 3,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” and “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” to land in the fifth all-time slot. It now sits behind only “Avatar” ($2.7 billion), “Titanic” ($2.1 billion), “The Avengers” ($1.5 billion), and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” ($1.3 billion).
While the massive success of “Frozen” was a huge surprise to Disney execs, the studio is capitalizing on the world’s obsession with the flick, commissioning a Broadway musical adaptation and a special “Frozen”-centric Disney on Ice tour. Meanwhile, “Frozen” merchandise remains almost impossible to find; we can’t imagine that its continued climb of the box office charts will slow demand anytime soon.
“Frozen” also boasts the title of most successful animated movie of all time, besting “Toy Story 3″‘s take of $1.06 billion. Perhaps the only film that could stop this juggernaut is the yet-to-be-greenlit “Frozen 2.”
