In less than four months, Disney’s Oscar-winning animated feature Frozen has grossed more than $1 billion, heading toward the title of the highest grossing animated movie in history.

Frozen ticked sales in North America alone hit $388.8 million, while the rest of the world grossed $611.5 million since last November, when it was released.

The current record is held by Toy Story 3 which grossed $1.06 billion since its premiere in 2010, but Frozen is on the way to beat that record, especially since one more opening in Japan is set for next week.

If we take into consideration only non-sequel animated features, Frozen’s already the highest grossing movie, featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, whose name John Travolta so notoriously messed up at the Academy Awards last Sunday, and Kristen Bell.

“I don’t think anyone saw this coming,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a media analyst, adding, “What Frozen proves is that the Disney brand is incredibly strong and carries a lot of weight.”

In addition, husband and wife Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez helped Frozen to score Best Original Song award for “Let it Go” at the Academy Awards.
