With the weekend collection along with the Thanksgiving holidays, Moana could score a five-day opening of $75 million or more, and possibly north of $80 million, according to Variety

With so much earnings expected to come to the tills, Moana is even expected to match the all-time Thanksgiving record of $93.4 million for the five days, set three years ago by Disney’s “Frozen.” 

The other holidays fare include J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that has already collected over $143 million over the Monday and Tuesday showcasing in theatres.
