‘Frozen 2’ Hits $1.3 Billion At The Worldwide Box Office Passing The First ‘Frozen,’ ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Passes $900 Million

After over a month of domination at the box office Frozen 2 has hit a mark that no animated film has done before it.

The animated sequel grossed another $11.3 million stateside and $42.4 million oversees bringing its worldwide total to $1.325 billion. That total officially makes it the highest grossing film of all-time.

Now, the big question is whether or not 2019’s The Lion King falls under the animated film category. However, I spoke with someone at Disney and they do not consider The Lion King remake an animated film due to the visual techniques used to create the film. So Frozen 2 is your new animated king… or queen.
