Moviegoers just wouldn't let it go, and now "Frozen" is more successful than "Jurassic Park" and "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace."

The Oscar-winning Disney film has spawned a best-selling soundtrack, a lucrative line of merchandise and a host of a viral videos inspired by the movie's songs. It also just took the 13th spot on the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time, surpassing Steven Spielberg's dinosaur classic and the first installment in the "Star Wars" prequel trilogy.

With a worldwide gross of $1.032 billion and counting, "Frozen" could become the highest-grossing animated movie, ever. It's already topped "The Lion King" and "Finding Nemo," and it needs only about $31 million to climb past "Toy Story 3," which currently sits at No. 11. If it does, it'll also eclipse "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," which is positioned at No. 12.

To top off its box office magnitude, "Frozen" is one of the most successful DVD and Blu-ray releases in recent years. As of March 19, one day after it hit stores, Disney reported sales of 3.2 million copies, including pre-sales.
