Disney movies are often thought of as “kid” movies. According to Presto, Disney is back and more relevant than ever before.
Frozen is one of Disney’s most recent successful box office hits, with kids and adults loving the highest grossing animated film of all time. In fact, Frozen is the 5th highest grossing film of all time, right behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It raked in an international gross earning of 1.2 billion dollars.
Disney’s other animated movies haven’t hit this big in a long time. The Lion King is Disney’s only other movie to make it to the top 10 Highest Grossing Animated Film category in 1994. Before 2013, Disney hadn’t had a big hit in over 10 years. Tarzan in 1999 was Disney’s last big hit, with Pixar picking up the slack in most recent years.
One of the reasons Frozen is such a big hit is the music. Much of the music was produced by Broadway’s veteran composers. “Let It Go” not only won an Academy Award, but five awards in total. A remixed version made it to the number one spot on a dance song chart and number five on the US Billboard 100.
