'Frozen' Is Officially The Highest-Grossing Animated Film Ever

"Frozen" has officially become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, its total reaching $1.072 billion this weekend -- $398.4 million domestically and $674 million internationally -- following a strong performance after its final opening in Japan. "Frozen" beat out "Toy Story 3," which pulled in a total of $1.063 billion in 2010.

At the beginning of the month, "Frozen" surpassed "The Lion King" as Walt Disney Animation Studios' highest-grossing movie. The film also notably won the award for Best Animated Feature Film as well as Best Original Song for "Let It Go" at the 86th Academy Awards. It has since passed "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" to enter the top 10 highest-grossing films in the world.

The "Frozen" soundtrack is also seeing great success, preparing to secure its eighth week atop the Billboard chart and its conquest of Taylor Swift's "Red," in its pursuit of the long-standing champion, Adele's "21."
