Thanks to the international box office, Disney's Frozen has become the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, as well as the single highest-grossing film with a clear female protagonist and a female (co-) director in Jennifer Lee. 

Anna and Elsa have thus far collected $1.2 billion, including $400 million from domestic ticket sales and nearly $200 million in Japan, where Frozen has topped the box office for eleven consecutive weeks. 

Hopefully the lesson that Hollywood can take from Frozen's runaway-success story is that audiences crave more female-centric stories and something more substantial than the traditional happily ever after.
