The Mouse House continues to dominate the box office, breaking records left and right while spreading joy and entertainment to all.

…Okay, that was a bit cheesy, but just this Saturday, Disney revealed that Frozen 2 has gone over the billion-dollar mark on the box office, making it the sixth film from them that has achieved this feat this year so far.

People had waited a long time for Frozen‘s highly anticipated sequel and it only took them six long years to give us the sequel the audiences deserved.

Frozen 2 premiered a week prior to Thanksgiving and had racked up a whopping $127 million in its opening domestically. It’s amazing to note that it only took less than a month for the movie to break the billion-dollar mark. Even before the animated hit was released, analysts have forecasted that Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna’s (Kristen Bell ) highly anticipated return would breach a billion dollars given that the first film was one of the hottest animated films ever produced.

Comscore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian stated that Frozen 2 has become Disney’s sixth billion-dollar release so far, and with The Rise of Skywalker right around the corner, the studio will definitely have a merry BIG Christmas when the final installation of Star Wars’ Skywalker Sage breaks into the Mouse House’s billion-dollar club.

Frozen 2 joins the ranks of other Disney films like Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Aladdin, Captain Marvel, and Toy Story 4 who have all surpassed the billion-dollar mark this year. Soon enough we can add Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to this list as well.

Frozen 2 is the continuation of Elsa, the Snow Queen’s story alongside her sister Anna. After the events from the previous film, she had become happy being surrounded by the people she loved and the Arendelle community. However, Elsa feels off for some strange reason after hearing a strange and disembodied voice calling out to her. Together with Anna, Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and Olaf (Josh Gad), the group goes on a mystical adventure to the magical forests and turbulent seas across the reaches of their kingdom, meeting new friends and foe alike in an attempt to discover and understand herself better.
