‘Frozen II’ Becomes 6th Disney Movie to Earn $1 Billion in 2019. Disney has been dominating at the Box Office this year and has added another title to the “Billion Dollar Club”. Frozen II has become the 6th Disney film this year to earn $1 billion or more at the global box office, earning an estimated $1.03 billion as of today, and they are not stopping there.
Disney still has the release of Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker to look forward to this weekend, and it is completely possible that the final installation of the Skywalker Saga will also earn $1 billion or more before the end of its theatrical run.
Frozen II joins other Disney movies such as: Avengers: Endgame ($2.8B), The Lion King ($1.66B), Captain Marvel ($1.13B), Toy Story 4 ($1.07B), and Aladdin ($1.05B).
“Why was Elsa (Idina Menzel) born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad), and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen II,” she must hope they are enough.”
“It’s difficult to describe the momentousness [year] that Disney is enjoying,” says senior media analyst at Comscore, Paul Dergarabedian. “Disney has consistently put almost unfathomable numbers on the board by delivering a diverse and irresistible slate of films, while capitalizing on the goodwill and viewer loyalty that has been built up by years.”
