Just on the Thanksgiving Eve, the movie has earned a record $15.7 million which is ahead of the Frozen’s haul of $15.2 million in the same period in 2013, according to Variety.

The movie Frozen embarked on to make $93.4 million eventually and Moana is expected to break that record. The movie has been predicted to make over $80 million in the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend.
