Fans of Anna, Elsa, Hans and Sven had to wait six years for the follow-up to 2013’s hugely successful "Frozen," but it was worth the wait.
In fact, the Disney sequel exceeded all expectations, both in terms of critical response and box-office takings. "Frozen II" took $1.28 billion globally at its box-office debut, making it the top-grossing animated release ever.
"Granted, it's not easy following up on the first film," Disney distribution chief Cathleen Taff told The Hollywood Reporter. "Six years is a pretty big gap, but the length of time doesn't matter when people feel invested in the characters."
