Here's How Much Money Frozen 2 Is Expected To Make In Its First Weekend
Lots and lots of money.
Disney's next big animated movie, Frozen II, is predictably expected to be a huge hit at the box office. But just how much money is the film expected to pull in?
Variety has early box office tracking estimates. They suggest the movie will make more than $100 million for its opening weekend, which would make it the biggest opening weekend haul for a Walt Disney Animation movie ever--Pixar movies are counted separately. Zootopia is the current leader at $75.1 million.
By comparison, the 2013 original Frozen made $67.4 million over its first weekend, and a total of $93.6 million for the five-day Thanskgiving period. Frozen wrapped up its run in theatres with a massive $1.3 billion globally. That continues to be the biggest total box office result for an animated movie all time.
Frozen II stands to be a massive success due in part to pent up demand. After all, it's been six years since the first movie came out and made "Let It Go" and "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" some of the most popular and ubiquitous songs on Earth.
Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel return in Frozen II to voice the sisters Anna and Elsa. Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad) return as well, alongside new characters. The directors of the original movie, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, have also returned for the sequel, as have Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who wrote the music.
Frozen 2 hits theatres on November 22.
