‘Frozen’ breaks $1 billion

NEW YORK - Disney’s hit film “Frozen” has become the top-grossing animated film in box-office history, the studio said on Sunday as the musical topped $1 billion in global sales.

The film has sold $398.4 million worth of tickets at U.S. and Canadian theatres since opening on Nov. 27 on the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Foreign box offices have added $674 million, for a global total of $1.072 billion, Disney said.

“Frozen,” inspired by “The Snow Queen” fairy tale, is the story of a Scandinavian princess who must reconnect with her sister, the Queen, who has the power of freezing anything into ice with her hands and accidentally sets off a long winter that is destroying their kingdom.

The previous animated-film box-office champion was 2010’s “Toy Story 3,” which racked up $1.063 billion in sales, according to Boxofficemojo.com. Both films were distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
