In July, Disney was the first studio to reach the $1 billion domestic box office milestone for the year, a threshold it has achieved for eight consecutive years. In August, in record time, Disney reached the $2 billion international box office threshold for the fourth year in ka row, and in early November the studio surpassed its previous all-time international box office record of $2.302 billion, also set in 2010.

Disney’s Frozen opens in theaters nationwide today. The film began an exclusive advance engagement at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre on November 22, earning $243,390 over three days for one of the highest opening theater averages of all time.
