Disney's "Frozen" has become a sensation in the 10 weeks since its Thanksgiving premiere. It has made a worldwide total of $810 million during its time in theaters, meaning that it has passed "The Lion King" to become the second-highest grossing, non-sequel animated release in history. "Frozen" has made $347 million in the U.S. and $462 million in international territories; it will not even be released in China and Japan until Feb. 5 and March 15, respectively.

Take a look at how we're feeling about the film's huge and much deserved success.

As you know, Disney's "Frozen" is a massive smash hit.

It's adventurous, inspiring and just plain cute.

And yeah, Elsa and Anna have made more box-office cash than Simba, Timon and Pumbaa.

Even through a polar vortex and plenty of inclement weather, Disney fans have shown up in droves to see the chilly film.

The only other non-sequel, animated film to make more money than "Frozen" during its release was "Finding Nemo," but the wintry flick has accepted that challenge and is gunning for the top spot.

It's sure to make even more cash throughout the remainder of its box-office run.

So far, "Frozen" has had its most international success in the U.K., Germany and France.

It's so popular, it's received two Academy Awards nominations.

So if you love "Frozen," raise your hands ...

And repeat after us: Snow business like show business.
