Frozen 2 Has $127 Million Opening Weekend
Six years after the success of the first film, Frozen 2 has made more than $127 million over its first weekend in cinemas, says Disney.
Frozen 2 has also broken a number of records for Disney, getting the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios movie. It has also had the highest-grossing global debut of any animated film.
The new film brings back a lot of the same voice actors as the 2013 film, including Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna. The couple who wrote the music for Frozen, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, returned too, although the songs in Frozen 2 have been less popular than those in the first film.

Critics gave the new film a score of 75% fresh on film review website Rotten Tomatoes, while the first Frozen got 90%. However, its audience score on Rotten Tomatoes was 93% fresh.
