Disney’s latest animated opus, Frozen, has been tearing up records around the globe and now it’s claimed another scalp. Frozen has officially become the most successful 3D animated movie for Japan. Since launching in Japan on March 14, it has taken over ¥15,900,000,000 up until May 6th. Previously, the highest grossing movie was James Cameron’s Avatar.
In the overall best placings for movies in Japan, it currently ranks in the 8th position. But as it look like it isn’t slowing down any time soon, it could potentially break through the ¥20 billion.
