After winning two Academy Awards on Sunday, Disney's animated hit Frozen has passed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.
Despite hitting $1 billion, the film still hasn't opened in Japan and will be released on home video later this month, reports Contact Music. Disney announced the film is now the 18th highest grossing movie of all-time.
The success of Frozen has Disney looking for ways to keep cashing in. The $150 million animated film currently has a sequel starting up production as well as a musical.
In a statement, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said, "With Frozen, we knew we had something truly special on our hands, and it has connected with fans and filmgoers around the world in a way we only dreamed was possible."
According to Entertainment Weekly, Frozen is the seventh film to cross the $1 billion mark. Other films that have hit that threshold include Toy Story 3, Toy Story 2 and The Avengers.
The film has earned the majority, $611.5 million, at the international box offices, with $388.8 million coming from the U.S.
