Animated News: Frozen earns over $600M in the box office


Anna and Elsa
According to Animation Magazine, this weekend Disney's 'Frozen' brought it's worldwide take to $639.9 million. As reported by Ramin Zahed, directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, 'Frozen' is now the second most successful Disney animated film--second only to the 'Lion King'. You can read his article here on the Animation Magazine website. If you haven't seen it yet, take a look a the trailer below to see a glimpse of what you're missing.



And then follow it up with my favorite sequence from 'Frozen'.



I'll be honest, I really don't like musicals so whenever characters start singing in animated films, my teeth start to grind, but this sequence was just spectacular! Mandy Moore set a really high bar with some of her songs in 'Tangled', but Idina Menzel is well on her way to making "Let It Go" one of those iconic Disney songs.
