"Frozen 2" is already on track to be a huge box-office hit.
Ticket service Fandango announced on Tuesday that the Disney sequel beat the Fandango record for biggest first-day presales for an animated movie, surpassing "Toy Story 4" and "Incredibles 2."
The top five biggest animated presellers for Fandango are below:
- "Frozen 2" (2019)
- "Toy Story 4" (2019)
- "Incredibles 2" (2018)
- "Finding Dory" (2016)
- "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (2018)
The first "Frozen," which was released in 2013, earned $93.5 million domestically over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, but the follow-up is expected to top that. It ultimately grossed $1.27 billion worldwide and remains the highest-grossing animated movie of all time (not counting this year's "Lion King" remake; there's debate about whether the remake is an animated movie).
"Incredibles 2" holds the record for the biggest domestic opening of all time (before adjusting for inflation) for an animated movie with $180 million. That went on to make $1.24 billion globally.
In its long-range forecast in September, Boxoffice Pro projected "Frozen 2" would earn $125 million in its domestic opening, but those numbers could change as the movie gets closer to release.
"Frozen 2" hits theaters on November 22.
