Disney’s “Frozen” To Become The Biggest Animated Film Of All TimeBy: Tobias Roth - March 19, 2014
Hearing about Disney’s Frozen has been pretty much unavoidable over the past several months, as the hit film continues to be adored by fans worldwide. It was released around the holidays, just in time for all of the kids to go, and many have seen it multiple times.
Frozen is an animated film from Disney, and it has easily become an instant classic, getting everyone to sing along to the songs in a way that has not been done for several years.
The film’s hit song “Let It Go” was performed by Idina Menzel at the recent broadcast of the Academy Awards. In the film, Menzel plays Elsa, the queen who accidentally casts an eternal Winter on her village.
In addition to Idina Menzel, the film stars Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff in a handful of incredibly memorable roles. Some of the cast even got together for a special stage performance shortly before the Academy Awards, to the delight of many fans.
Disney’s Frozen had a big night at the Oscars, as the song won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and of course it won the award for Best Animated Feature as well.
In addition to its Oscar nomination, “Let It Go” has been gone viral in a number of ways, given all sorts of tributes and remixes, and even one version that has Elsa singing the song in 25 different languages.
In expected news for anyone who has heard anything about Disney’s Frozen, and its massive popularity, the film is set to become the biggest animated film of all time. It has certainly sparked the interest of a wide variety of people, unlike other Disney films of the recent past.
The DVD of the film was finally released yesterday, and the film continues to make even more money at the box office. Earlier this month, the film passed the $1 billion mark, which makes it only the second animated feature in history to cross that mark, following in the footsteps of Toy Story 3.
After passing the $1 billion mark in theaters, Frozen remained in the top 10 at the box office for several weeks. Upon its initial release, it quickly rose to the top of the ranks, knocking off The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which had seemed unstoppable at the time.
Disney’s Frozen features plenty of songs that people all over the world have started singing along to, and a separate sing-along version of the film was even released in theaters due to high demand, and the popularity of the soundtrack.
