Frozen 2

Story by Jack Foley

DISNEY’S Frozen 2 has continued its reign at the top of the UK and Ireland box office by posting yet another magical weekend figure of over £8.7 million.

The sequel now boasts a UK total of £27.33 million, which means it has taken more than the lifetime totals of Disney’s Wreck it Ralph, Tangled, Moana and Zootropolis after just 10 days on release.

Globally, the film has now taken $739 million following breaking the record for the biggest ever opening for an animated film and took the record for the No.1 Thanksgiving gross of all time in the US, taking $124 million over the five-day weekend.

Audiences also seem to be lapping up the new songs, with Into the Unknown, Show Yourself, Some Things Never Change and Lost in the Woods also receiving millions of streams online with the soundtrack outperforming the original, at the same time of release, by a spectacular 260%.

Academy Award® winning duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez returned for the new film writing seven all-new original songs.

Jennifer Lee, director, writer and the Chief Creative Officer of the Walt Disney Animation Studios, commented: “The songs and score of Frozen 2 reflect the growth of the characters and the deepening of their story. The music is fun but emotional, personal yet powerful, intimate but also epic. Kristen, Bobby and Christophe have definitely outdone themselves and taken the music to brave new heights.”
