The film, which is based on the Scandinavian Snow Queen fairytale, took the place of 2010's Toy Story , which earned $1.063 billion in sales.

The animated feature spent three months on the top ten films list on domestic box office charts. Now, Frozen becomes the 10th-largest grossing film that has been seen in cinematic history.

Frozen has not only had success with the box office, but also the music charts as well. Not only did it win Best Animated Film, but it also won Best Original Song, according to Entertainment Weekly.
