“Frozen” opened wide domestically on November 27, 2013, posting the #1 all-time Thanksgiving debut ($93.6M five-day, $67.4M three-day) and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ biggest opening ever. It remained in the top 10 films at the domestic box office for 16 consecutive weeks, the longest run by any film since 2002.

 Internationally, “Frozen” is the biggest Disney or Pixar animated film of all time in 27 territories, including Russia, China, and Brazil. In Korea, where the film has grossed an estimated $77.1 million, “Frozen” was #1 for the first five weeks of release and is the biggest animated film, the second biggest non-local film, and Disney’s biggest release of all time. It’s also the highest-grossing animated film of all time in Denmark and Venezuela. Since its debut March 14 in Japan, “Frozen” has claimed the #1 spot in its first three weekends and continues to play strongly with an estimated $50.5 million to date.

Released on digital February 25 and on disc March 18, “Frozen” is the fastest-selling digital release ever and sold over 3.2 million Blu-ray/DVD units in its first day, putting it on track to be one of the biggest home entertainment sellers in a decade.

The Platinum-certified “Frozen” soundtrack returned to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart last week for a seventh time with more than 1.6 million copies and over 5 million individual tracks sold. The album has also held the #1 position for five nonconsecutive weeks at Spotify and is approaching 110 million streams worldwide. The Oscar®-winning song “Let It Go” has sold over 2.6 million copies, and the film clip of the song has been viewed over 160 million times on YouTube.

With original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and an original score by Christophe Beck, “Frozen” is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, written by Jennifer Lee, and produced by Peter Del Vecho. It features the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad. 

“Frozen” is available in theaters in 2D, 3D and Sing-A-Long, as well as on Digital HD & 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and On Demand.

    Wonderful news. Frozen is the best animinated film and one of the best film I have seen in the last 10 years.

    That's not a shot from The Lego Movie tho! That's some dude's recreation of the zero-gravity hallway scene from Inception.

    @concerned parent, don’t believe people that say the family in the sauna is gay. Only those few with agenda believe that nonsense. They post that crazy theory everywhere.

    Yeah, if only it didn't indoctrinate my two young daughters (as well as countless other children) with such strong pro-gay messages. Honestly, first Hollywood makes homosexuality seem natural with this children's film, and then they blaspheme the word of God by portraying Noah as a psychotic liberal environmentalist (those two things go hand-in-hand you know). When will Hollywood learn that we care about CONSERVATIVE values?
