Frozen is a 2013 American 3D computer-animated adventure musical fantasy comedy-drama film, created and produced at Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Snow Queen, it is the 53rd animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon.
The story centers fearless optimist but also naive Princess Anna, who embarks on a perilous journey to save her kingdom from a curse conjured by her older sister, Queen Elsa. Along the way, she partners up with a misanthropic mountain man, his trusty reindeer, and an enchanted snowman with dreams of experiencing summer. All the while, Anna's supposedly "dashing" fiancé, Prince Hans, has his own plans for the queen and her kingdom.
The film premiered at the El Capitan Theatre on November 19, 2013 and went into general theatrical release on November 27 in the United States, Canada, and the Philippines. It was met with widespread acclaim from critics and audiences, winning two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song ("Let It Go"), among numerous other accolades. Frozen was also a commercial success; it accumulated over $1.2 billion in worldwide box office revenue, $400 million of which were earned in the United States and Canada and $247 million of which were earned in Japan. It was the fifth highest-grossing film of all time (behind Avatar, Titanic, The Avengers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2) and the highest-grossing animated film of all time until it was surpassed by both its sequel Frozen II and the 2019 remake of The Lion King in 2019. It is currently the 16th highest-grossing film of all time and the third highest-grossing animated film of all time (behind the 2019 remake of The Lion King and Frozen II).
