Highest-grossing animated film ever!

After becoming Disney’s sixth film of 2019 to cross the $1B threshold worldwide when it hit the milestone in mid-December, ‘Frozen 2’ has now capitalized on holiday play to become the biggest animated movie of all time globally.

With an estimated $1.325B, the Chris Buck/Jennifer Lee-helmed sequel has iced the previous record holder, ‘Frozen’ ($1.281B), as well as ‘Incredibles 2’ ($1.243B), to take over the crown. The current split on ‘F2’ is $449.9M domestic and $875.3M at the international box office. The top three animated titles ever on a worldwide basis are now all Disney Animation/Pixar releases.

‘Frozen 2’ had double Golden Globe nominations, in both the Animated Feature and Best Original Song categories. It went up against stablemates ‘Toy Story 4’ and ‘The Lion King’ in the animated race and against ‘TLK’ in Original Song. However this was only for only the fourth time in the history of the Golden Globes, Disney did not take home the trophy for ‘Best Animated Feature.’ Instead, the underdog film ‘Missing Link’ took home the award at the 2020 Golden Globes. ‘Missing Link’, produced by Laika Studios, follows the story of a Sasquatch named Mr. Link who lives a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest. He befriends a mythical creature investigator, Sir Lionel Frost and adventurer Adelina Fortnight. The three set out on a journey to help reunite Mr. Link with his relatives. While the movie may not have been a big blockbuster success in 2019, the film certainly had a lot of star power.
