At the home box office, the movie grossed a hefty $300 million. In the rest of the world, it raked in a staggering $642 million which speaks volumes about its popularity. This makes it a record breaker alright. The only other Disney animation to have almost equaled it was the Lion King.
Shrek, Toy Story and Finding Nemo have all come close to this movie’s level but they still fall short. And the money keeps rolling in. One reason for this may be the funny sequences that are shown in the movie of a snowman with a carrot and two twigs for a nose and arms. A comical reindeer is depicted too.
Meanwhile, its music is something which the common people are just dying to listen to. It has made it to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. And it is no coincidence that all of North America is in the grip of a polar vortex at the exact moment when this movie has conquered the hearts of a malleable audience.
Already, the film has been nominated for several awards. The soundtrack has pushed pop star Beyonce’s album off the numero uno spot and gained the upper hand. Frozen is a winner and Walt Disney’s ghost must be looking and smiling from up above.
