Frozen 2 Opens to $8.5 Million at Thursday Previews


Frozen 2 opened with an impressive $8.5 million at Thursday evening previews heading into its domestic debut, The Walt Disney Studios is reporting. This is a strong start that compares well to the recent summer previews of Disney/Pixar animation and live action releases, such as Aladdin ($7 million), Finding Dory ($9 million) and Toy Story 4 ($12 million).

Internationally, Frozen 2 began its rollout on Wednesday and has already brought in $18.6 million from 26 markets. It opened at No. 1 in all markets and posted the highest-animated opening day of all-time in Korea, Indonesia, Turkey, Philippines, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and UAE. The opening day in France was the highest Disney Animation opening day of all time, while Germany posted the third-highest animated opening day of all time. Frozen 2 has also posted the second-highest animated opening day of all time in Belgium and the third-highest animated opening day of all time in The Netherlands, Singapore, and Thailand.

The film opens in a further 10 markets today, including China, Japan, Mexico, UK, and Spain. Early estimates for China indicate an opening day of $11.4 million, which would mark the highest Disney Animation/Pixar opening day ever.

Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen 2, she must hope they are enough.

The sequel comes from the Academy Award-winning team — directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, and producer Peter Del Vecho — and features the voices of Idina MenzelKristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, and the music of Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
