Queen Elsa’s return received quite a response from the audience.
Around $127 million worth tickets were sold in the U.S. from Friday to Sunday, which contributed to making Frozen 2 opening a weekend to remember. The movie made a terrific start by generating a total international debut of $350.2 million, which marked the best opening for an animated film on a global stage.
Frozen 2’s mighty record has indicated a great scope for future animated movies. Pixar’s hit, Toy Story 4, was the former record holder which was released earlier in 2019. Although the movie was able to bag an impressive amount of $240.9 million, Frozen 2 beats this record by more than $100 million.
Domestically, Frozen 2’s opening weekend revenue failed to beat Pixar’s productions: Finding Dory ($135.1 million) and Incredibles 2 ($182.7 million).
Frozen 2 smashed Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ record and scored biggest international opening at the box office by netting $228.2 million outside the U.S. Interestingly, Dawn of the Dinosaurs generated $152 million box office in its initial days of release and this record was maintained by Ice Age since 2009.
Strong storyline, engaging music numbers, and the heartwarming messages of sisterhood, love, and perseverance helped Disney secure the biggest animated film opening to date.
With all these elements combined, Frozen 2 is all set to take the box office by storm!
