Frozen 2: The highest grossing animated movie in history

Frozen 2 has overtaken its predecessor to be named the highest-grossing animated movie in history.

The 2019 sequel, starring Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, has generated an enormous $1.33 billion at the global box office, pushing the original 2013 Disney musical into second place with $1.28 billion.

Third place in the list is Incredibles 2, which grossed $1.24 billion, followed by Minions which took $1.16 billion

Although Disney’s reboot of The Lion King took in a massive $1.65billion last year (2019), the film is technically counted as a “live-action remake” rather than an animated movie, so is omitted from the list.

As Frozen and Incredibles are both Disney franchises, the studio has secured the top three animated slots. Frozen 2 was also the third-biggest film of 2019, after Disney’s Avengers: Endgame which raked in $2.79 billion and The Lion King, rounding off a hugely successful year for the company.


Elsa the Snow Queen has an extraordinary gift -- the power to create ice and snow. But no matter how happy she is to be surrounded by the people of Arendelle, Elsa finds herself strangely unsettled. After hearing a mysterious voice call out to her, Elsa travels to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond her kingdom -- an adventure that soon turns into a journey of self-discovery.

Box office: $1.034 billion

Release date: 22 November 2019
