'Frozen' hits $1 billion mark at worldwide box office
Last night, Frozen snagged two Oscars: One for best original song for “Let It Go,” and the other for best animated feature. Oh, and it also crossed the $1 billion mark for worldwide box office.
Six other Walt Disney Studios films have also hit the $1 billion mark, including The Avengers and Toy Story 3. So far, Frozen has earned an estimated $388.8 million domestically and $611.5 million internationally since its November 27, 2013 domestic release — and it still has one more international territory to go, debuting in Japan March 14.
“With Frozen, we knew we had something truly special on our hands, and it has connected with fans and filmgoers around the world in a way we only dreamed was possible,” said Alan Horn, chairman at Walt Disney Studios, in a statement.
The animated film is still in theaters and will come out on DVD March 18.
