Frozen not only remains Disney's most commercially successful film ever, but it's now grossed more money at the worldwide box office than 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' to move it into the position of the sixth highest-grossing film of all-time.
Since it topped the $1 billion mark at the start of March and became the biggest-grossing animated film ever at end of it, the Disney musical has gradually made it up the inaugural list of the top 10 biggest of all-time.
Having now scooped just shy of $1.13 billion, it now sits comfortably in that top 10 at number six, now jumping ahead of 'Skyfall', 'The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King' and 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', which occupied eighth, seventh and sixth respectively.
In fact, it's exceeded all expectation since beating 'Toy Story 3' as the biggest animated film ever, but it seems that was only the beginning of 'Frozen's' box office domination.
Now lurking just outside the top five, 'Frozen' has already overtaken 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' earlier this month, and still it continues to make money.
Just where it'll eventually stop is anyone's guess, but it's unlikely to beat 'Iron Man 3's' $1,215,439,994 set in 2013. That said, many were sceptical as to whether it'd even break into that exclusive 10 list, let alone affirm itself so comfortably in there.
With Chris Buck revealing that, at present, there's been no talk of a sequel between himself and Jen Lee and indeed Disney; it would surely be a missed opportunity, financial-wise at least, to rule one out completely. Hopefully if one did go ahead, then it'd be because of the passion to do so rather than any monetary incentive.
