Sorry, FrozenStar Wars: The Force Awakens’ success is a snowball that won’t stop growing. The film just passed Elsa and Anna’s spot in the all-time global box office rankings, becoming the #8 movie of all-time, according to Disney estimates on Thursday.

The Force Awakens has also now become the highest-grossing domestic Disney film of all time, making as much money in only 13 days as Marvel’s The Avengers made in all of 2012 ($623.4 million). The Force was strong on Christmas weekend, making $28.1 million domestically and $36.7 million internationally, for a global total of $64.8 million. Domestically, The Force Awakens is the #2 movie of 2015, and the #4 movie of all-time.
