Frozen 2 tracking $100 million opening at the box office
Disney’s Frozen 2 is on track to open with over $100 million at the box office when the animated sequel debuts in theaters on November 22, according to Deadline. This would mark the first time an animated feature earned $100 million over a three-day opening weekend outside of summer releases.
Frozen 2 will see the return of stars Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Idina Menzel and Josh Gad (Murder on the Orient Express), as well as the additions of Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld).
Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen 2, she must hope they are enough.
The film is helm by Academy Award-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck with Peter Del Vecho serving as a producer. It also feature music from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on November 22.
The first film was the smash hit of 2013, landing as the highest-grossing animated film of all-time and the highest-grossing film of the year with over $1.2 billion grossed worldwide. Frozen received rave reviews from critics and audiences, winning Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Let It Go,” which also reached the top five on the Billboard 100.
