Disney can have the smile this early 2020. With its many successes in theaters in 2019 (Avengers : Endgame, The Lion King, Star Wars : The Ascent of Skywalker, Toy Story 4), the studio has put lots of pockets. But one of the movies that has the most conspicuous is none other than The Snow Queen 2, sequel of the adventures of Anna and Elsa. In cinemas from 20 November, it comes to exceed the mark of $ 1.3 billion of revenue. A success because it allows him to surpass The Snow Queen and become the animated film with the most success in the world. His score can only increase, since the film is always operated at the present time.
In the top 10 of animated movies that had the most success in the world (find below), there are also The Incredibles 2, Minions, Toy Story 4 , or even Me, ugly and nasty 3. It can be seen, all films are released in the 2010s. The evidence that the older movies are obsolete ? Not so fast…
A different collation in France
In France, The Snow Queen 2 has also attracted small and large in dark rooms : with more than 6.6 million entries, it is the 4th film with the most seen in the past year. And yet, do not expect to see him beat the record for number of entries : the ranking of the animated films that have worked best in the cinema in France is very (very) different from the one of the biggest global successes.
The biggest hit on our territory, these are the older Disney films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (with over 18 million entries !), The Jungle Book or Cinderella. To find a film more “recent”, it is necessary to wait for The finding Nemo (released in 2003) and ranks in the 9th place. In comparison, The snow Queen has made 5,1 million entries in us (38th) and The Snow Queen 2 is currently 20th with its 6.6 million admissions. Olaf and the others can still run to dethrone the queen Snow White !
