In fact, Frozen 2 was the third biggest film of 2019, coming in just after Disney’s Avengers: Endgame at $2.79 billion and the live-action The Lion King at$1.65 billion.
The highly anticipated sequel broke a ton of records ever since before it first debuted on November 22. On its first day of advanced ticket sales, Frozen 2 sold more tickets than any other animated feature through both ticket sites, Atom Tickets and Fandango.

Frozen 2, is directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck and stars some of the original Frozen cast like Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Josh Gad (Olaf), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff).
The highly anticipated sequel follows the story of Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and the rest of the Frozen gang on a remarkable journey as they embark into an ancient land and magical forest. Why? Well, because Elsa must follow a voice that seems to be calling her, which leads them to where Elsa’s magical powers originated from.
Frozen fans were also introduced to some new cast members in the sequel like Evan Rachel Wood (Queen Iduna) and Sterling K. Brown (Lieutenant Mattias).
