The sequel of the hit Disney classic also set a November record for an opening of an animated film.
The film had the third-best opening weekend for an animated film behind Pixar's Finding Dory (£104 million), and The Incredibles 2 (£141 million). It also notched the biggest opening weekend ever for Walt Disney Animation, and is the first animated movie to bring in a triple digit opening outside of a summer weekend. That is almost double of the original film's 67.3 million dollar opening, showing the growing strength of this film's dedicated fanbase.
Dergarabedian added that the film was able to deliver family-friendly entertainment to "an enthusiastic global audience on an advantageous release date", which helped solidify Disney's position as the highest-grossing studio this year. The film has already passed the box office result from the original's first five days in theatres and may pass the total sum of a global $1.3 billion that the predecessor made.

Matching that total gross won't be easy sledding, but "Frozen 2" has a head start.
In a recent interview, Kristen Bell confirmed that filmmakers Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck had Frozen II's ending in mind from the start, and filled in the other moving pieces as the movie went along.
