Frozen is Officially the Highest-Grossing Animated Movie Ever
Flick also makes the top 10 of all time...

Disney's Frozen, the studio's latest juggernaut, has just become the highest-grossinganimated movie of all time with earnings of $1.072 billion globally, finally beating out Pixar's Toy Story 3, released in 2010, for the crown.

The news willl certainly be music to the ears of Disney, who have recently begun to shrug off the disappointment of some poor performances at the box office with its animated features in the past few years (Pixar aside), and it definitely bodes well for the future following the decision to move away from more traditional animation styles towards computer-based work.

As well as topplingToy Story 3 as the highest earning animated movie, Frozen has also managed to make its way into the top 10 grossing movies of all time, and currently sits in 10th, only $.012 bn behind The Dark Knight. Even more impressive is the fact that it's the only movie in the top 10 list that's not a sequel or James Cameron movie - quite an achievement for a brand new property, and it's still got plenty of earning potential yet, with home entertainment sales still ticking along nicely at retail.
