Frozen Passes $1.2 Billion, Becomes Fifth Highest-Grossing Film of All Time

Frozen has inspired a lot of moviegoers to open their wallets, take out cash, and "Let It Go."

The animated musical — starring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, among others — has now earned more than $1.219 billion dollars.

That makes it the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time in terms of worldwide box office, according to Box Office Mojo, with more than $800 million of that coming from overseas movie theaters.

The four movies Frozen has yet to beat are 2011's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.342 billion), 2012's Marvel's The Avengers ($1.519 billion), 1997's Titanic ($2.187 billion), and 2009's Avatar ($2.782 billion).

All four of those movies, however, are live-action — which makes Frozen the top-grossing animated movie ever in worldwide box office. (Domestically, it's still beaten out by Toy Story 3, The Lion King, and Shrek 2.)

Frozen is extending its icy cool to other markets too, with theme park attractions, a musical, and even a Once Upon a Time storyline in the works.

Could Frozen 2 be in the pipeline, too? With a box office take this monumental, we wouldn't be surprised!
