Even though the initial international box office estimate was well over the $200 million mark, by Monday morning Disney reported totals topping $228 million. Add that to the $130 million domestic total and it looks like Frozen 2 is the highest grossing debut for an animated film globally.
Not only did Frozen 2 break animated opening records, but it also broke Disney’s own record. The sequel is now the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.
If you didn’t brave the crowds to catch the film during its opening weekend, what can you expect? Kristen Bell, the voice of Anna, recently told PEOPLE, “Whatever you think Frozen is, throw it in the trash because this movie is like an epic adventure where everything is seemingly good in Arendelle.”
