‘Frozen II‘ Predicted to Break Opening Weekend Box Office Records. It’s no secret that Disney has been reigning at the box office all through 2019, having made billions of dollars with only a handful of movies. Disney is looking even more profitable after the releases of two more major titles before the end of the year: Frozen II (November 22) and Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (December 20th).
Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker has already beaten record holder, Avengers: Endgame, in ticket pre-sales and is expected to be the highest grossing Star Wars film to date, but it appears Frozen II is also poised to make massive waves for animated featured films at the box office.
According to Deadline, predictions point to Frozen II making well over $100 Million during opening weekend If the prediction proves to be true, that would make Frozen II the first animated feature film ever to earn over $100 million on an opening weekend not “In Summer” (I hope Olaf appreciates that joke).
The original film, Frozen, earned over $1.29 billion, during its theatrical release in 2013. Frozen II is expected to surpass its predecessor and possibly bring in more than The Lion King (2019), which earned $1.65 billion in theaters, potentially making it the highest grossing animated film to date.
“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 2,” she must hope they are enough.”
“From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, comes Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2019.”
